    Here i will post updated news and you can discuss what you think about the movie and movie related topics.

    Ok well we know it comes out August 15th this year. And i read in wikipedia that the cast members are going to be:

    Justin Chatwin as Goku

    James Marsters as Piccolo

    Jamie Chung as Chi-Chi

    Emmy Rossum as Bulma

    Chow Yun-Fat as Master Roshi

    Joon Park as Yamcha.

    Eriko Tamura as Mai.

    Edited 1/30/08:

    Luis Arrieta as Teto: A fellow student and friend of Goku. He is an original character created for the film.

    Randall Duk Kim as Grandpa Gohan

    Edited 2/6/08:

    Ernie Hudson will play an alter boy in a temple who will aid Goku and his friends

    They also said that they are not going to include any talking animals like oolong or puĀ“ar. they already have some pictures on set but they are not very good, you can find them here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4cczq6kUF0. Also they are going to give bulma a wig to wear like the anime, but they are not going to give goku a wig, they say his hair looks already like goku(i don't think so) anyway do you guys have any comments on the live action movie?

    Edited 1/22/08: It is likely that there will be no Krillen, Tien, or Chatzo in the movie. Also this is the plot of the movie:

    [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.

    Edited 1/25/08: The film has been confirmed to be a trilogy.
    There will be an original character called Teto played by Luis Arrieta, a mexican actor, his role will be of Goku's friend, he won't be very important but will be the key in some parts, depending on how the audience likes him, his role may be more important in the next 2 films. He finished all his scenes in 2 days.

    Edited 1/28/08: Piccolo (James Marster) is confirmed to be green in the movie.

    Texas Battle as Carey Fuller: A high school bully

    Edited 3/4/08: Well, as some of you maybe be disappointed(I know I am)the movie has officially been delayed to April 3rd 2009. That is more than a year from know.

    I hear Goku is going to be a high school student, even though in DB/Z Goku never stepped foot inside a school(which is apart of why his personality is what it is). Dumb movie

    I'm a fan so I won't be pessimistic, I've been on enough imdb boards to hear fans saying "The movie will stink." Let's wait. I'm hoping for the best.

    I get the feeling that this movie will be the same as GT. So many things that don't make sence. Goku in high school is properly a way to make non dbz fans atracted to the movie. That sucks!
