Released in the United States on January 16th, the movie begins with the origin of the Saiyans and then goes back to the present to an all out battle between the possible last three full-blooded Saiyans. With unbelievable action and great animation, this movie has been called the best Dragon Ball movie yet.

Before its release in the US, Broly had already taken over the world, in places such as Japan and Mexico. Upon its release in Latin America, the movie had already made an overwhelming 32 million dollars worldwide, adding 6.5 million on its opening day in Mexico, becoming the country’s most popular movie at the time. On its opening weekend in Japan, it broke box office records, grossing a remarkable 8.7 million dollars. That wasn’t the only record it broke in Japan; in less than two weeks after its release, the movie grossed over 2 billion yen, the fastest film to make such an accomplishment.

Possibly the best part of the movie for the fans is getting to see all their favorite characters becoming official, or canon for Dragon Ball. When the first Broly movie came out in 1993, many fans loved the character of Broly, but were disappointed that he wasn’t canon. Same goes for Gogeta, the fusion of Goku and Vegeta; appearing in his first movie in 1995, fans waited for the moment to see him once again. This movie gave them that and much more, with a tragic backstory and amazing characterization of Broly, along with the most action scenes you see involved with Gogeta.

“I was speculating that it was gonna make a lot of money from the outset,” Chris Sabat, voice of Vegeta told EW. “It’s such an interesting feature, and it truly did give fans what they had been wanting from the last two movies, which was just the most epic of fighting scenes.

Fans are especially excited for the canon debut of Gogeta
