I think it'll be based off the story of the orignal Dragon Ball (ie before Dragon Ball Z, well before Goku goes super saiyan and all that fun jazz). Anyhow this age thing is throwing me off, in DB he was largely seen as a child though there was a time when he and Krillin were rivals to become pupils to the turtle hermit (probably not going to make it in). I figure this is probably aimed at making profits while shaming a name that is basically legendary (in a good and bad way at the same time). I doubt they could honestly follow the plot of the original dragon ball series without running into trouble with certain moments and where's Goku's tail? If this is Dragon Ball and Krillin isn't around, I expect to see a tail. As for Piccolo, I figure it's King Piccolo who has yet to shoot out the egg that becomes the famous Piccolo who goes on to special beam cannon and such. Overall I may this if it reaches the DVD stage though it may receive some random "awards" from hollywood to "encourage" more projects like this. Like everything these days, it could very well end up as a Triology.

I'm actually quite surprised that Krillin seems to have been excluded from the characters appearing in the movie. Maybe a bald kid running around would ruin the "cool" image they're aiming for. As you said, this is obviously not really a movie that wants to draw in fans of the series, but bring in new blood. The hyped up little boys who are all into NARU-TOE will pester and beg their parents to let them see this movie. Think of the toys, posters and other merchandise...I'm sure places like Walmart will be brimming with all of it.

As for the story, I don't take the "oh we'll make it totally comtemporary so it makes sense" as much of an excuse. The series itself gives loads and loads of possible plot points they could work with while still staying true to the setting it was based in. It doesn't look like DB to me...there's a slight resemblance, but it bugs me.

It could be that Krillin in usually lacks a nose, therefore it'd be easier for them to completely change the story, replace his with some girl (with the name of Mai or something like that) and make Goku a teenager (which would have put him between DB and DBZ, though Krilling should have been there and it probably would have been Piccolo jr in the ring). If the toys don't have the classic "Goku" hair style, I'm going to be upset though I'd be wierded out if they made him go Super Saiyan before the Frieza Saga. I think most fans will ultimately look at this as a shameful attempt to bring in money, though some might find something charming like that 1998 US film of Godzilla (though the creature has been re-dubbed as "Zilla" for some reasons). I'm just hoping they aren't going to onto a rampage through classic series and movies, they've ruined Aliens and Predators for me, and now DB, next it'll be Ranma 1/2 and Mobile Suit Gundam (they'll probably work from Wing then down based on popularity on websites).

That'd be too close to the DBZ look.



This is probably what they were aiming for but figured adding some white to him wouldn't hurt, it did wonders to Bowser.


Sorry about all the images. Hollywood certain does strange classic icons.
