A Dragonball live action movie? Yes it is for real!

Category : Movies

I am sure most people have heard a few years ago that a Dragonball Z live action movie was in the works. They had many rumors about the movie, one such as George Lucas will be doing the special effects. Then the rumors stopped and no production was heard about it. Until recently I heard that there is a movie in production and it will be coming out in April 10, 2009. A few pictures also has been leaked which is included on this post.

According to IMDB the plot is as follows, “[Based on] The King Piccolo Saga [Dragonball], also known as the Piccolo Daimaoh Saga (Demon Lord Piccolo Saga) is the penultimate saga from the anime Dragon Ball. It occurs after the Tien Shinhan Saga and precedes the Piccolo Junior Saga. It includes the battles between Goku and King Piccolo’s sons, Goku’s first encounter with the Samurai warrior, Yajirobe, Goku’s quest to find the Holy Water, his final battle with young King Piccolo, and the birth of Piccolo Junior.
Appearances also made by Yamcha and Bulma but regrettably not Pu’ar or Oolong, nor even Krillin. Ox King and his Daughter Chi Chi are speculated”

Also, the cast is as follows:

Justin Chatwin as Goku

Yun-Fat Chow as Master Roshi

James Marsters as Lord Piccolo

Emmy Rossum as Bulma

Jamie Chung as Chi Chi

Joon Park as Yamcha

Randall Duk Kim as Grandpa Gohan

Eriko Tamura as Mai

Texas Battle as Carey Fuller

Shavon Kirksey as Emi

Luis Arrieta as Weaver

Richard Blake as Agundas

Julian Sedgwick as Mr. Kingery

I don’t know what to say. I have seen the anime series and it seems as if they are not completely following the series by adding people and taking certain people out such as Krillin. I will definitely be checking out the movie even if it is given horrible ratings. I would like to see for myself how this movie turns out. It is also said they have a budget of $100 million. Well all I can say is, nothing is concrete until a trailer or news release is put out. So until then, if I come across anything else I will be sure to post.
