    Whoah, no way! As in, a real theatrical animated film? The last one that Dragon Ball had was since the remake with the GT animators.

    Anyway, a lot of people are saying that it'll remake the original arcs for a new generation, and others have said that maybe this film will adapt the Buu saga, which Kai skipped.

    I'm hoping for whole new content, like most of the other films.

    Or maybe it'll adapt SD, who knows?:p

    Excellent news! Sounds like the perfect chance bring back Broly again.

    *ducks*

    Crunchyroll picked up on a tidbit that Toriyama is involved and that Goten & Trunks will feature in it. Just as long as it's nothing like movie 11!

    If you're asking whether it's following up on Dragon Ball Kai or GT, that's looking very unlikely. What I linked to points to an original scenario, I'd say.

    Edit: From Kanzenshuu:

    What I was reffering to was that live action train wreck in 2009

    ...who were the same exact people that worked on the first two series', if I may say. :p


    Also, damn. Why does this stuff always happen when I'm asleep? Well, not that I didn't see it coming. I made the thread about this on Kanzenshuu and was waiting for more confirmation before I made one for here. :p

    Oh, no. Don't even joke about that.:p


    I'm not even sure I care when it takes place, but if Goten and Trunks are in it, I kind've hope that it takes place after the defeat of Kid Buu, but before the arrival of Uub, because than Goku can be around, at the very least. I missed him in Bio-Broly.

    It's a Dragon Ball Z movie. Coming March 30, 2013. Hosoda Masahiro is director. Yamamuro Tadayoshi is again animation supervisor.

    I wonder if this will officially be treated a 'movie fourteen/eighteen'?

    Another question to ask is how long it'll be. I know the original movies were ~50 minutes, but with this one being release years later it could conceivably be the length of modern shonen movie.

    I don't see it being paired up with another movie, so I'm going to go ahead and assume it's going to be longer than fifty minutes.

    Hopefully Yamamuro gets a good budget. I'm willing to bet that this has been in production since late last year, considering the buzz on the Super Saikyou Somethingrather Project that involved Episode of Bardock.

    This better have Falconer music.

    And a guest appearance by Drowning Pool.

    Derp, I'm dumb. Hosoda Masahiro did work on Dragon Ball Z as a director.

    Also, Toriyama is apparently more involved in this movie's production than the previous ones.

    Can't wait. It looks like this might just not be a half-assed film on the level of Episode of Bardock.

    Goku and Vegeta share an apartment in a buddy comedy.

    "KAKAROT! Did you eat the roast I cooked?"
    "Sure did, tasted great!"
    "You blathering idiot! My boss is coming over for dinner and now I have nothing to serve him! *ding dong* Son of a Raditz, he's here! What ever you do, don't mention his horns. He's very sensetive about them!"

    So this isn't being made directly for Shueisha?

    So that would mean that unlike Goku and Friends Return or Episode of Bardock, this actually has a chance of being dubbed, correct?

    *crosses fingers for Laura Bailey and Kara Edwards coming back when it inevitably happens*

    Please tell me this gets released oversea and that it's any good. Haven't seen Dragon Ball: Evolution, but I hated the 12th movie.

    My hype cannot be contained, and yeah, this better get an R1 release that isn't just a limited-time stream or video game bonus feature. Also, I'm REALLY liking this trend of Shonen manga-ka getting more involved with the anime films.

    I don't think so. This appears to be a full on film from Toei Animation, hence why it appears to be treated with a regular theatrical release. Now, whether Toei is quick to license this out is an entirely different question. I'm sure they'll want to bleed the Japanese Otaku first to make their money back, espicially if it's a ninety minute movie. From there, maybe we'll see FUNimation get their hands on it, but I'd quicker have no expectations so as to control one's anticipation.

    Well, at least until the R2's come out...
