Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be released in theaters worldwide in August. With all of the hype surrounding the film, fans are expecting to leave the theaters with huge smiles on their faces. Will Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero be available on Crunchyroll after its global theatrical release?
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero focuses on the Red Ribbon Army's new ultimate androids created by Dr. Gero's grandson.
After Son Goku annihilated the Red Ribbon Army years ago, the new leader duped Dr. Gero's grandson into thinking the Capsule Corp. is an evil secret society!
It is now up to Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 to not only avenge their organization but also to prevent the Capsule Corp. from inflicting a devastating alien invasion on Earth.
Gamma 1 and Gamma 2 aim to achieve their new goal as Super Heroes against Piccolo and Gohan.
What will happen to Earth now that Goku and Vegeta are off-world? Who will step forward to stop Gamma 1 and 2, as well as the Red Ribbon Army?

Will Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Appear on Crunchyroll?
As of this writing, Crunchyroll has yet to confirm that Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will arrive on their streaming platform.
However, it is widely expected that Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be released on Crunchyroll at a later date.
This is based on Crunchyroll’s major role in the global theatrical release and promotion of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, together with Toei Animation and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
It will come as no surprise if Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is made available on Crunchyroll.
After all, the same thing happened with Demon Slayer's Mugen Train and Jujutsu Kaisen 0, both of which were huge domestic and international successes.
It'll only be a matter of time before Crunchyroll subscribers can watch Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero on the streaming service.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Crunchyroll Release Date
Crunchyroll has yet to confirm the release date of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero on their streaming platform. The film, however, will most likely be available on Crunchyroll in 2023.
For the time being, fans should keep an eye out for more information as Crunchyroll, Toei Animation, and Sony Pictures Entertainment prepare for the global theatrical release of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero in over 2,300 theaters.
This will be the first time in Crunchyroll's history that an anime film will be truly globally distributed in North America.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will be distributed internationally in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment.
After being acquired by Sony Pictures Entertainment in 2021 and merging with Funimation, Crunchyroll will distribute the first Dragon Ball film on their slate.
Crunchyroll is well-known for surprising its subscribers with anime film release dates on its platform.
The streaming service usually announces release dates when their subscribers least expect them.
It is also worth noting that releasing an anime film on Crunchyroll takes into account its DVD and Blu-ray releases.
It will take time for an anime film to be available on Crunchyroll in order to maximize the DVD and Blu-ray sales.
In any case, we can expect Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero to be released on Crunchyroll between June and August 2023.
The film premiered in June 2022, and its global theatrical release begins on August 19.
This is based on the Crunchyroll release of Demon Slayer's Mugen Train film after its theatrical premiere.
Since Demon Slayer's Mugen Train film premiered in Japan in October 2020, it was then released on Crunchyroll one year later, in October 2021.
