DRAGON BALL Z: BATTLE OF GODS is the first DRAGON BALL Z movie to receive a Japanese theatrical release in 17 years, and with original manga creator, Akira Toriyama heavily involved, this is the first film in the series to be considered an official part of the original DRAGON BALL manga storyline. When Beerus, The God of Destruction awakes from a long slumber, he learns of the defeat of the galactic overlord Freeza by the hands of Son Goku. Seeking an opponent worthy of his power, Beerus, along with his companion Uis, travels to the North Quadrant of the universe to challenge Goku to a battle. One of the most beloved manga and anime brands in the world, DRAGON BALL and DRAGON BALL Z have a rich cultural history spanning two decades, significantly boosting the popularity of Japanese animation in Western culture and influencing multiple generations of fans. In Australia, DRAGON BALL Z has enjoyed a regular television broadcast across Channel 10 and Cartoon Network and has sold in excess of one million units across DVD and VHS formats alone.
