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).



I think it would be interesting to ask the team who worked on the movie directly. I'd love to hear the reasons why they made so many drastic changes to the look and overall story. Maybe it would start making a little sense.


As for Mai..I don't think she'll be a sidekick...rival maybe? She was an enemy to Goku in Dragon Ball...perhaps her role is different in the movie?

If Hollywood wants to keep doing these projects they had better get their asses into gear. I've heard they're doing a Cowboy Bebop movie. Possibly a movie based on Monster, one of my favorite series of all time. I'll be soso sad if they ruin those supposed projects.

Knew there was no way they could take the full story of dragonball and make it into a movie. Something as SciFi as dragonball is more-or-less impossible for Hollywood to make into a feature film. So they had to change the story... that sucks. Oh well, I'll probably watch it just to see how many flaws there are to the story.

It would be interesting to be in their shows and to hear their opinions, though they could rely on various strategies that seem to be popular in movies, like maybe they'll turn DB into a romance thing with some action thrown in, get a little love triangle (who knows if the Red Ribbon army will be in it). Considering that Goku is going to school or something along that line, she might play a female villian or a foil to something for a bit then disappear once piccolo shows up. That might be interesting as long as they keep to the story. Well here's to hoping they don't ruin things. At this point, I'm gonna guess they made Krillin into the "Token" (or however it's spelt) African American of the movie who'll probably show up, give the two or so lines then die then be revived in the next film.

Judging from just the trailer, this movie is going to awful. I doubt anyone would rush to go see this if it didn't carry the Dragon Ball Z name.

Its obvious hollywood is just after money and whatever they produce with a DBZ name on it is bound to make millions. Its a shame everything that has a big following is reduced to this.

I'd feel much more at ease if the creater of the DBZ franchise was directly involved with this. About the actors not having any muscle mass.. I suppose they could do the same thing they did with 300. CGI in some abs.

Most of the actors are probably asian due to some pointless marketing scheme... "If we put a few asians into the movie, the stupid american audience would think its a legit Dragon Ball Z movie!"

yea i think they made goku a white male so that americans would like it more! i suppose but like i said in another thread the maker of dragonball has never stated goku's colour they just said he was a sayian. There is nothing to say he is asian? he could have been jewish for all we know (no offense to the jewish) but its true. As a dragonball fan it would have been better if Goku was maybe half asian at least just to show sum authenticity but hey its not going to happen. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR PICCOLO THOUGH. what have they done??? how could they. They killed the experience altogether with piccolo!!!! i just couldnt believe it when i saw him in the trailer i wanted to cry. Would it have killed them to make him green? did the £100 million pound budget run out when they came to piccolo FACE PAINT IS CHEAP! and they could have just borrowed a scarf for his head! they could have robbed a homeless guy for the clothes? God what have they done WHAT HAVE THEY DONE! ILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU! but damn straight i will still watch the film lol maybe not go to the movies but ill watch it online! im not going to waste my money. If i pay i will be even more angry cause they would have robbed me too lol

Goku isn't asian,he's a saiyan.Its just that he is drawn by a Japanese,there is something wrong with Piccolo though
