    Special Message from Akira Toriyama

    “Thanks so much to all you amazing fans out there who have already gone out to see the SAND LAND movie!

    Moviegoer counts are still not as high as they could be, but we’ve already received some very positive reviews. Some lovely people have even shared that they were surprised to find themselves deeply moved by the movie. In particular, the rave reviews about the mecha appearing in SAND LAND are entirely thanks to the hard work of the animation staff.

    And to anyone out there who hasn’t seen the movie, are debating going to watch it, or are reluctant to head out to a movie theater: Don’t overthink things! I really hope that everyone has the chance to see this film.”

    Lastly, SAND LAND is now playing in Japanese theaters, and the movie will premiere in 2024 in North America.

    Here’s an overview of SAND LAND from VIZ Media:

    In the far future, war has destroyed the entire Earth, leaving only a barren wasteland where the supply of water is controlled by the greedy king. In search of a long-lost lake, Sheriff Rao asked the king of the demons for help…and got the king’s son, Beelzebub, and his assistant, Thief. Together the unlikely trio sets off across the desert, facing dragons, bandits and the deadliest foe of all… the King’s army itself! It’s travel adventure and tank action in this new story from Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball Z!
