Things haven’t been going well for Toei Animation for a while and fans are now faced with more bad news.
The animation tycoon has its hands on a lot of major shows, such as One Piece, Dragon Ball Super, and Digimon.
The production for most of these titles have recently been stopped in their tracks because of a third-party hack and this hack takes a toll on Dragon Ball Super’s latest film.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Film has been delayed until further notice due to a hack at Toei headquarters last week.

In a statement, the company revealed that the hacking incident that took place in March 2022 has made it difficult to produce the film.
Regardless, Toei stated that it will disclose the new release date of the film eventually. Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero was originally supposed to release in Japan on April 22, 2022.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is the 21st movie in the franchise and the second film under the Dragon Ball Super name. The movie will be the first theatrical release in the franchise to be animated entirely using CG.
Super Hero features one of Goku’s oldest enemies, the Red Ribbon Army. It also introduces two new antagonistic android warriors, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2.
The story centers on the relationship between Gohan and Piccolo, who will debut a new, more powerful form in the film.
Toei has hyped up Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero through trailers, merch, and posters. The hack must have proved larger than what any one of us thought.
It is ambiguous if this delay will affect the North American release of the film, which is scheduled for summer 2022.
