I was briefly horrified at the prospect that this was a live action sequel before I opened the topic.

I posted the majority of this information in the anime thread like 3 months ago....

But they did just release some new info, so I guess it warrants a new thread and spreading of the word.

This is unquestionably coming to the US, and with Toriyama involved, I'm in.

I got excited thinking this was a sequel to the live action movie.

I really wanted to see more of those characters.

Oh well.

Dragonball Evolution wasn't as terrible as people said. I watched it and I was bored, and it didn't piss me off like the trolls did.

I could care less when this new cartoon movie could fit in the timeline, especially since Toriyama's pacing barely gives the characters breathing room, minus some clearly stated gaps. As long as they're making it, I'm game.

I'm pretty sure most of the movies didn't follow the main timeline so the same will probably happen for this one.

..........why is Gohan a super saiyan?

Lol has it been a while since you watched the anime? Or are are you asking why it's Super Sayian Gohan rather than Ultimate/Mystic Gohan? If your question is referring to the latter, then when the movie takes place might have something to do with it.

I'm pretty sure most of the movies didn't follow the main timeline so the same will probably happen for this one.

This movie is set after the defeat of Buu and between the 10 year gap that occurs in chapters 517 and 518 of the original manga. At this point, with Akira Toriyama's heavy involvement, it's believed to be canon.

yeah, I meant why isn't he mystic, unless it was just a temporary powerup. Oh well, as long as he and Piccolo are relevant in the fights, I'm happy.

A brief outline of the movie's story was put on Toei's Japanese site. Here's a translation from ANN:

"The story is set several years after the battle with Majin Buu. Birusu, the god of destruction who has maintained the balance of the universe, has awakened from a long slumber. Hearing rumors of a Saiyan (Saiya-jin) who defeated Freeza, Birusu comes looking for Goku. Excited that a powerful opponent has appeared after so long, Goku ignores King Kai's advce and challenges Birusu in a battle. However, Goku is no match for Birusu's overwhelming power and is defeated. Birusu leaves after uttering an ominous message, “Is there anyone on Earth more worthy to destroy?” Will Goku and the others really be able to stop the God of Destruction?!"

I swear, it must be the easiest thing in the world to write a DBZ story.

Mysterious new foe appears, more powerful than any of the current heroes.
Defeats/kills a few of the heroes.
They have to devise a way of defeating the new foe, usually through training.
Some times passes.
The newly empowered hero/heroes fight the new foe again.
After some back and forth, the hero eventually wins out.

Repeat for next saga.

Think we'll see SSJ 5?

*edit* Nevermind, this is taking place after the buu saga. We should at least some some more SSJ 3.

That's every shounen jump series.

And if you want to see the live action characters, just watch Shameless on Showtime.

Because continuity is stupid and they can't have the strongest person in the Universe actually do anything with his power other than beat up street thugs as the Great Saiyaman.

Fck awesome, I would like a CGI movie rather than a live-action from Hollywood. What I like about DBZ is the insane power, no zigzag story, and Kamehameha.
