First of all, I would like to thank
for informing me about the latest information about the 2015 DBZ movie.
It has finally been revealed what the story will be about.
If you remember, the movie trailer said that "the worst wish in history" is going to be granted, and that it will be someone being revived. Well, the info is out.
The title of the movie is "Dragon Ball Z: Revival of F".
The "F" stands for "Freeza".
Freeza is coming back! Two remaining soldiers from his army, Sorbet and Tagoma, will gather the dragonballs and resurrect him. Now, there is one obvious problem with this plan - Freeza is a freaking weakling by this point in the series. However, the movie poster shows something interesting - Freeza surrounded with an aura suspiciously similar to the Super Saiyan God aura from "Battle of Gods" (BoG). Obviously Freeza can't become a Super Saiyan God, but it seems he might figure out a way to become a type of God, or at the very least become much more powerful, or possibly use the second wish (if there is one since there clearly wasn't one in "BoG") to finally wish for immortality. At this point, all we can do is speculate.
But one thing is certain - as always, the fans are split about this plot. Some feel Freeza has come back enough times (even though two of those times were technically non-canon and thus, don't count) and that we don't need him anymore. Others feel like it's great to see the galactic overlord return and become a threat again. Me personally? I am with the second half. I absolutely HATED Freeza's death in the series. His defeat on Namek was awesome, but his death on Earth was pathetic. Having the archvillain of the previous saga, the one that had the longest fight in Dragon ball history and took a LOT to take down, RETURNING to the series WITH his father.....only to be anticlimactically killed just to set up the threat level for the villains of the next saga. What. The. HELL!? Even as a kid I felt robbed. -_-
Now, not only does Freeza have a chance to be threatening again and go down like the evil badass that he is, but this is a very good opportunity for Vegeta as well. Akira Toriyama did say that he was planning to make Vegeta the main protagonist of the next movie. If Toriyama remembers this (since he is famous for his bad memory) then this is the perfect time for Vegeta to shine. Freeza, his former boss, the one who killed his father and his race, the one who broke him both mentally and physically AND killed him on Namek, is coming back. And he, the reformed Saiyan prince, who cast aside his pride and sacrificed his life to protect his family, now has a chance to face him once more. This is the perfect set-up for a truly epic Vegeta vs Freeza showdown. Whether or not this potential will be fulfilled remains to be seen.
The movie itself will supposedly be 2 hours long - the longest DBZ movie so far. Let's hope they make good use of that.
Also, according to the movie poster, Lord Beerus and his martial arts teacher, Whis, are coming back!
