Guess who's back!
The next Dragon Ball Super movie will premiere globally in August and a new trailer shows off the return of a classic villain.

Or at least a new version of Cell called Cell Max. Given that evolving into powerful new forms is sort of Cell's whole deal, it’s not a surprise to learn that Cell has found another new form to transform into.
But Cell isn’t the only leveling up. Piccolo is seen in the trailer with a new form himself, appropriately named Orange Piccolo. And Gohan also gets a new form, Final Gohan who can be seen briefly in the trailer with whit hair and red eyes.
