On the 33rd issue of 'Gekkan Shonen Jump' (released July 14th), it was revealed that Toriyama Akira's popular manga series, 'Dragon Ball', would be getting a new anime film adaptation.

The movie titled 'Dragon Ball Z' will be an original story, and is scheduled for release on March 30th, 2013. Toriyama, who will be involved in writing the script, commented, "While retaining the original atmosphere, I plan on giving it a little bit of a modern flavor. I believe it's going to turn out to be an entertaining work just like the old days."

'Dragon Ball' was serialized in 'Shounen Jump' from 1984 to 1995, and the comic has sold over 150 million copies in Japan alone. The original anime was first broadcast on Fuji TV in 1986, followed by 'Dragon Ball Z' from 1989 to 1996, and 'Dragon Ball GT' from 1996 to 1997. Then later from 2009 to 2011, 'Dragon Ball Z' aired as a remake called 'Dragon Ball Kai'. Since 'Dragon Ball Shenlong no Densetsu' in 1986, there has been a total of 17 total films released.

The upcoming movie will be directed by Hosoda Masahiro ('DIGIMON XROS WARS', 'Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters'), and written by Watanabe Yusuke ('GANTZ', '20 Seiki Shonen'). Yamamuro Tadayoshi ('Dragon Ball', 'Hakaba Kitaro') will serve as the animation director, and Kato Hiroshi ('Shinseiki Evangelion') as the art director.
