Dragon Ball Evolution

Post by Stocky Boy »

Anyone feel that DBE may end up being a reasonably enjoyable film, but think, really, skinny american boy as the lead?

From what I've heard, the movie should be really good...
...you know, in that "it's so bad it's great" sort of way. ^_^

I'm waiting to see the commercials before I decide if I'm gonna see it in theatres.

Still, I <3 Piccalo! :)

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.

It will be interesting to see how the establish the backstory though. There was about 170 episode of dragonball before dragonball z.

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.

As I understand it, they are skipping Emperor Pilaf, the Red Ribbon Army, etc, and Piccolo (the old-guy version) is gonna be the main villian.

I don't think Vegeta will be in it or mentioned.
Maybe if it makes enough money to warrant a sequel?

When I heard about the movie being made, I assumed that it would have the tournament in it as well. From the sounds of it, it will not be included though.

HMPF!
Vegeta didn't wanna be in their movie anyways. They'd just screw up his hair and voice.

Also, I see that they decided to cast an actor to play Goku who reflects the character's squinty-eyed innocent stupidity, instead of his wide-eyed innocent curiousity. :rolleyes:
