Dragonball Evolution

I started my fascination about anime's since childhood. Some of my favorites are Fushigi Yuugi, Yuyu Hakusho, Ranma 1/2, Mojacko, Naruto, Bleach, Dragonball, and a lot more. I'm really an anime fan. So when I heard that 20th Century Fox made a version of Dragonball and will show it on April of this year, I started checking out forums and website about it. Well, I have mixed feelings after seeing the trailers, gallery, and all. Watching the teaser really makes me feel excited about it. Nice graphics, great acting, good casting, and characters seems to make sense, well, at least on the trailer, can't say yet until I see the full movie. But I was disappointed at some point, finding some details in contrast to the series I used to watch. In the movie, Goku is in high school, while in the series, he only attended Master Roshi's school of martial arts. Also, he trained with Master Roshi in the movie without Krillin, who is actually, Goku's rival, turned bestfriend.

The $100 Million movie was directed by James Wong, and the most important character, Goku, was played by Justin Chatwin (a Canadian actor who once appeared in the movies "War of the Worlds" and "The Invisible'). Other main characters are Bulma (Emmy Rossum), Master Roshi (Chow Yun-Fat), Yamcha (Joon Park), Lord Piccolo (James Marsters), Mai (Eriko Tamura), Chi-Chi (Jamie Chung), and Grandpa Gohan (Randall Duk Kim).

I guess, I can only hope that 20th Century Fox, James Wong, the Casts, and the rest of the team who made this movie possible, won't disappoint the fans of Dragonball. I cannot judge yet, until I see the full movie.

Anyway, I got across some trailers in You Tube, so I have posted them here, for those who are curious about the movie, or who wants to know what Dragonball is.
