Is this part of the series canon at all? The other DBZ movies sort of did their own thing I think, and are difficult to fit into the continuity of the series.
It takes place in the years in between the defeat of Buu and the last tournament where Goku fights Uub.
Team Four Star is going to have a field day.
But seriously, looking forward to it.
This cat-Anubis villain seems more original than most DBZ movie enemies aside from Hildegarde....and Broly I guess.

Which would be good, because it means the Z-Warriors are facing a unique enemy who can munch their stats. Since Goku's a SSJ in this picture, unless they just wanted to stick with his "iconic" look, I would think they'd paint him as a SSJ3 to demonstrate the caliber of his opponent. However, since Gohan's a SSJ again, they might be facing an enemy who doesn't just "escalate" in power but actually weakens the heroes through...
...maybe Toriyama just forgot about Gohan's transformations.
But since they are facing "gods" this time around, it wouldn't be far-fetched if there was an evil deity who could reduce or take away the power that Elder Kai unlocked for Gohan. Afterall, in one film, there was a gas that could disrupt Ki, preventing the heroes from using energy attacks or powering up.
