Which Characters will show up in the Movie?
It has been confirmed that Pan, who is the granddaughter of Goku, will appear in the movie. Pan is the daughter of Gohan and Videl. Krillin and Piccolo are the other characters that the movie will focus on. According to the character design revealed by Toei animation, Pan seems to be in uniform. This suggests that she is probably in kindergarten. So the timeline of the movie sets up an important time skip. The new movie does not follow the timeline in the manga or the anime. This is evident because in the manga arcs Pan is still a toddler.
At the end of Dragon Ball Z epilogue, Pan is said to be five years old. In this new movie, we can that Pan’s character is around that age. This amazing piece of information has made fans even more excited for the release of the new Dragon Ball Super movie.
