The stream is to celebrate the home release of the film
December 7 marks the day Dragon Ball Super: SUPER HERO comes out on home video in Japan and to celebrate its release, the official Twitter account for the anime film revealed that the Red Ribbon will be coming back together for a special live stream.
Japanese voice actors, Hiroshi Kamiya (Gamma 1), Volcano Ota (Magenta), Ryota Takeuchi (Carmine) and non-Red Ribbon member Toshio Furukawa (Piccolo), will be part of the “Red Ribbon Army Great Reflection Meeting” stream on YouTube at 8 PM on December 7. They’ll be looking back at the film as well as peeking behind the scenes at how the voice recording worked.
Dragon Ball Super: SUPER HERO is currently the fifth highest-grossing anime film in the US with the film being an example of an international release that IMAX is looking at exporting all over the world to boost its profits. Crunchyroll started its global rollout on August 18, describing the film as such:
The Red Ribbon Army was once destroyed by Son Goku. Individuals, who carry on its spirit, have created the ultimate Androids, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2. These two Androids call themselves “Super Heroes”. They start attacking Piccolo and Gohan… What is the New Red Ribbon Army’s objective? In the face of approaching danger, it is time to awaken, Super Hero!
