Here's Where You Can Stream Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero Online

"Dragon Ball," one of the earliest adopters of theatrical anime movies, released its 21st movie, "Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero," in theaters last year, proving that fans want to see more of these iconic characters. "Super Hero" continues the story from "Dragon Ball Super," which stopped airing new episodes to focus on feature-length releases. 

In "Super Hero," Gohan and Piccolo team up again to stop the Red Ribbon Army and a divisive new version of Cell. With the movie's theatrical release comfortably in the rearview mirror, "Super Hero" is now available to watch from the comfort of your home. However, as with most anime movies, the title can be a bit challenging to find. 

Unfortunately, it's not as simple as opening Netflix and pressing play. "Super Hero" is currently only available for streaming via DirecTV, so you'll have to get a subscription for the provider to stream it directly. However, "Super Hero" is also available for purchase on Google Play Movies, YouTube, Amazon, and Apple TV. The Blu-Ray and DVD are also both available at most retailers if physical copies are more your speed.

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero dominated the box office

If one thing is clear, it's that people still really love the "Dragon Ball" franchise. While fans patiently await the return of the "Dragon Ball Super" anime, Toei continues to expand the story with feature-length films, and "Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero" showed out at the box office.

During its theatrical run, "Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero" dominated the box office, making over 30 million dollars domestically. While that number may not seem like much, since blockbusters in the U.S. comfortably make hundreds of millions, it's a pretty impressive haul for an anime movie. Domestically, "Super Hero" out-grossed "Dragon Ball Super: Broly," which was Toei's first foray into the big screen with the "Dragon Ball Super" tag.

In Japan, "Super Hero" snuck into the list of the highest-grossing films of all time, barely missing out on the Top 30. However, in the U.S., it beat out both "Broly" and "Jujutsu Kaisen 0," making it the fourth highest-grossing anime movie at the box office, right behind the likes of "Pokémon" and "Demon Slayer." That's some pretty solid company to stand with, especially when franchise leads Goku and Vegeta aren't the focus.
