All the power of Goku can do nothing against cyber-crime! Toei has announced that it has postponed the release of its highly anticipated film Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. The reason: the studio had to put all of its computer systems on stand-by after being hacked.
Last week, “an unauthorized third party” broke into Toei Animation’s network, triggering a systems suspension. For this reason, a variety of projects have been affected and the most important consequence is the suspension of the release of the next film. Dragon Ball Super.
