The official Twitter for the upcoming film project for the Dragon Ball franchise titled “Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero” has announced on Friday that the film will be indefinitely delayed due to the recent TOEI Animation system hacking incident.

The film was originally scheduled to open in Japanese theaters on April 22, 2022.

Excerpt from the film's official site (Translated in English by @CollinLT on Twitter):

"As previously announced, Toei Animation, the production company of the movie "Dragon Ball Super Super Hero," which was scheduled to be released nationwide on April 22 (Fri.), has experienced unauthorized access to its network by a third party, making it difficult to produce the movie. As a result, we have no choice but to postpone the release of the film. We apologize to all those who have been looking forward to the release of the film. We will announce the new release date in the near future. Thank you for your understanding."

Last March 6, the company’s network was illegally accessed by an unauthorized third party disabling parts of the system. This results in the delay of the upcoming TV anime episodes of "Dragon Quest Dai no Daibouken", "Delicious Party Precure", "Digimon Ghost Game", and "ONE PIECE".

According to ONE PIECE's official Twitter, the episode that is supposed to air on March 20 will be rescheduled at a later date.

As per the official Twitter of Dragon Quest: The Adventures of Dai, instead of the scheduled airing of its 73rd episode on Saturday, episode 31 will be broadcast. The new date of the airing of the 73rd episode will be announced at a later date.

According to the official Twitter of the Digimon Ghost Game anime series, the latest episode that is scheduled to air on March 20 will be delayed until further notice.

And lastly, as per the official Twitter account of Delicious Party Precure anime, the 6th episode of the series is delayed and will be rescheduled at a later date. It was originally scheduled to air on March 13.
