I've heard vaguely of this Dragonball Kai thing, but I was never particularly sure what it was about. >o< By "updating" or "following more closely with the manga", I wasn't sure if they meant cutting scenes from the originally aired anime that WASN'T in the manga (far as I recall, the scene where Goku fell off the Snake Road, and ended up in hell with two stupid looking demon people, it was years ago, I forget the details) or such things as animating NEW scenes that perhaps weren't in the anime, but WERE in the manga? I can't recall these particular scenes, because I havent read the full manga for a comparison.
I also remember that I think the tournament where Goku fought in heaven and stuff against all those other warriors from across the universe and stuff... I can't remember that being in the manga. Does that simply mean their cutting parts like that out? Making it less than it originally was? Because if thats the case, I wouldn't give this thumbs up at all. If its digitally remastered or something, the originally aired DBZ I remember seeing a year or two back on Cartoon Network wasn't particularly *that* in need of updating.
Oh, and Wiki says somewhere that THREE Dragonball movies are planned, apparently.
Fox is being really weird about it, they chased some guys made-up fan trailer off of YouTube because they were going to make a movie out of it, I suppose? But anyway, from what I've determined, the actual DBZ movie is AGES away from completion yet... unless someone can update me with news on this at all? Any new developments? ;__; Anything at all? x___x;; -Flops-
This Kai thing sounds iffy, but I honestly can't wait for the live-action movie. Out of sheer curiosities sake. If they DO develop a trilogy, and are successful in it, I really can't wait to see what the more "epic" battles will turn out like. I'm holding out hopes for something LIKE the battles from movies like The Matrix, only on a much grander scale. Then again, maybe I'm just fantasising. Still, I'm much in anticipation. ^___^
