Quickie: Dragonball Evolution Sequel Official

Uh-oh!

Do I get my movie now?!
Do I get my movie now?!
So, we already knew that a sequel was already written for Dragonball Evolution, though of course we have no idea what content it features. James Marsters is the one who sprung the leak, telling an interviewer that he's getting ready to shoot the sequel after his music tour is done (...did not know he was in a band). News via Topless Robot, who, of course, called this ages ago.

Before you even ask the dreaded three-letter word ("WHY!?"), remember that as TR noted that day oh so long ago, DBE did well enough just in its foreign releases to justify the sequel, once we found out its budget was smaller than originally thought, and doubtless they think a sequel will do at least as well. So that's why.

The rest of the original interview with Marsters doesn't offer much detail on the film, though his desire to make a Piccolo-centric sequel is well-documented. He does talk a bit about the first Dragonball film and how they tried to "stay true to the essence of Dragon Ball." He also talks a bit about life after Buffy and the usual topics...and some unusual ones, like how it felt to kiss John Barrowman on Torchwood.

Let the bitching commence! To get you started-- what would you want a sequel to do, and what would you want a sequel NOT to do? And do you think Marsters is getting his wish for a film based on the Gohan-and-Piccolo-team-up arc?

First off PIcalo was a bad guy in DragonBall. He became a good guy in the Z series. He wanted the dragonball's to become the strongest and destroy the earth because he was all the evil from the gardian of earth. So from the movie point of view they didn't mention the garudian of earth they left that open. They could say that the "Nameks" have a special power to control and sayian in monkey fourm witch is why they never atttacked there planet. As for the cyber men Picalo created was from his blood. Ive seen the movie many times there are some small flaws but no real big ones that cant be fixed in a sequal. It did follow the dragonball series not the Z series. They next movie will ithere be in the Z series or still DB series with the Red Ribbion army. They could jump the Z with Radiz or Vagita. Even in the DB series you dont find out theres a gaurdian of earth till all most the end of the series when hes fighting PIcalo. Then you find out that Picalo is all the evil from Kamie and went off to destroy the earth. So for all you people that think it didn't follow the story line watch the Dragonball series again. Not the Z or GT just Dragonball when Goku is a kid and it does follow the series prity dam close. They can fix the lil flaws in a sequal. They just need to do a better job on the CG and the fighting sceens. But other then that it was a good movie that did follow the DRAGONBALL series. 
And so what if they made a lil changes do you really want to sit through a movie and know whats gonna happen next. If they do that to all anime's that go live action they all would suck. take "Death Note" for example. Great anime and great live action movie. They made changes from the anime in the movie so people that seen the anime series dont know what gonna happen next. I was waiting the hole time for Kira to kill his dad but in the movie it was the other way around this is a good twist from anime series to movie to keep you interested.  
So stop hatin on Dragonball Evolution. Rewatch the Dragonball series and youll find out it does follow the story like of the anime just has a few twist to try and keep you interested. But people like you for some reason want to tell your friends or who ever you go with what gonna happen next. Just shut it and watch the movie. It followed the story line get over it.

Hey in light  since they waited they most likeley thought about what went wrong and what needs to be fixed, because the movie made plenty overseas
