Where otaku get their groove on.
Yeah, it seems that all the characters are going to be pale imitations of themselves, where the actual homage to DBZ will really just be the Dragonballs, cut-and-paste bits of the characters and the team comes togeter comraderie. The world / cinematography might be the biggest part of the film that's true to the book/anime though.

No freaking kidding. I wonder if they are actually gonna choose a one of the story arcs to focus on, or if their just gonna stir plots together?
Oh, and I've read that originally the character of Piccolo wuz gonna just look like a "strange human", bald with fangs and different coloured eyes and stuff.
Go fig, they make James Marsters look like an ancient vampire.
BTW, what gall from these movie producers! I mean really.
But apparently James, the actor portraying Piccolo is a big fan of the show and he INSISTED on being green with antenni even though it requires him to arrive for makeup everyday hours early.
You know, like it should have been all along.
