Original designer Akira Toriyama is in charge of the script and character design. He was already starting to work on the script while the previous film Dragon Ball Super: Broly was still in production. Toriyama shared a message to fans:

A brand new movie since Dragon Ball Super: Broly is currently in preparation!
Much like the previous film, I am heavily directing the production of the story and the dialogue for another amazing film.
I really shouldn’t be talking too much about the plot yet, but be prepared for some extreme and entertaining fights, which can come with an unexpected character.
We’re going to travel uncharted territory in terms of visual aesthetics to give audiences an incredible journey, so I hope everyone looks forward to the new movie!

Planning for the new film project began in 2018, ahead of the release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly. The film aims to tell “a story on a grand scale”. Along with the storyline and character design, Toriyama also writes lines of dialogue for the film.

The film will be the 21st animated film overall Dragon ball franchise.
