Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, the much anticipated second installment in the Dragon Ball Super movie series, was met with tremendous critical acclaim following its successful theatrical run.
The movie went on to officially become the second highest-grossing movie in the entire Dragon Ball franchise. The fandom is now wondering if the movie is available for streaming online.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is directed by Tetsuro Kodama and was released in Japan on June 11 last year after a cyberattack on the company's network of Toei Animation. The movie later came out globally on August 22. The previous movie in the Dragon Ball Super franchise, with screenplay by the mangaka Akira Toriyama himself, was Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
Can Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero be streamed online?
Fans can purchase Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero from platforms like Google Play Movies, YouTube, Amazon, Apple TV, and more. Since its theatrical release in Japan in August 2022, the movie has unfortunately not been made widely available for online streaming at the moment. Viewers in the US can opt for DIRECTV streaming platform to watch the movie.
Viewers can also buy Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero as home media in 4K Ultra HD Blu Ray/Blu Ray/DVD. The home media was globally released on March 13, 2023. In Japan, however, the home media was released last year on December 7, 2022.
Readers are encouraged to employ official sources to watch their favorite anime shows and movies, as it helps support the creators and the production studios.
Previously, it had been speculated that Crunchyroll might bring the new movie on their streaming platform, since it was Crunchyroll and its production house Toei Animation who were collectively responsible for bringing the movie to the theatres globally.
Additionally, Crunchyroll also holds the rights to the anime show Dragon Ball Super, which can be streamed on its official streaming platform. Sadly, the DB Super: Super Hero has not made it to the platform yet.
