Super Hero is set to become the first truly globally distributed theatrical release for Crunchyroll, and is the second Dragon Ball Super movie since Broly’s release in 2018. Both films are the continuation of Dragon Ball Super, which has both a manga and anime series, although the latter stopped producing new episodes in 2018.
