Dragonball Evolution 2 Reborn Movie Details
Dragon Ball is originally a manga series from Japan, written as well as illustrated by Akira Toriyama. In 2009, the film Dragonball Evolution was released under the direction of James Wong. From the original animated version, the story of Goku, his friends, and other superhuman beings are put into film starring real people.
The first movie has become successful enough to leave fans hopeful for a sequel. The rumors about Dragonball 2 Reborn has been making the rounds lately on the web and although no one, not even 20th Century Fox, has confirmed that one is currently being drafted, it is said that it would be possible.
The story would, of course, pick up on where it left off in the first film. The last scene showed Piccolo alive and being treated. This may mean that Goku might once again have to protect the world from being destroyed while gathering the dragon balls. However, there is a rumor that piccolo may indeed make a comeback, but this time, it would be to join forces with Goku to fight the super evil Raditz, who plans to kill Goku once and for all.
As for the characters, the main cast from the first movie called Dragonball Evolution would still be present. The main protagonist, of course, is Goku, or Son Goku in Japanese manga. This character is known to have superhuman powers and has trained well enough to be the best in the world, and other worlds as well.
In the second movie, he would have to defeat his brother Raditz, who is out to kill him. Goku will once again be played by Justin Chatwin, the popular actor from British Columbia.
Bulma, on the side of Goku, is the inventor of the Dragon Radar, a device meant to detect the signals being emitted by each of the dragonballs. She will be inventing even more exciting devices that can aid them in their search for the dragonballs and in defeating the powerful enemies. Bulma will once again be played by Emmy Rossum.
Chi-chi, Goku's love interest, will be present in the Dragonball sequel as well. Jamie Chung would still play the character of Chi-Chi in Dragonball 2 Reborn.
Piccolo, the main antagonist defeated by Goku in Dragonball Evolution, is alive, after all. This time, in Dragonball 2 Reborn, Piccolo would join Goku's side to help defeat even more powerful enemies who are out to put the world into total destruction. If the original plot of the Japanese version would be followed, Piccolo would be the trainer of Gohan, Goku's first child with Chi-Chi.
Dragonball Evolution has made the exciting adventure of Goku more realistic as it casts real people to play the roles. Fans have been waiting for a sequel, Dragonball 2 Reborn, to finally reveal to them what happens now that Piccolo is found to be alive and that the dragonballs are once again scattered in the universe. There is no announcement yet on when the sequel would start shooting, but it certainly has fans thrilled and undeniably excited.
