Marsters and Chatwin talk Dragonball sequels

dragonball evolution reviews ImageThe early reviews for Dragonball Evolution haven’t been that great, however if it makes a gazillion dollars at the box office 20th Century Fox will most likely move forward with a sequel, whether we want it or not. James Marsters and Justin Chatwin spoke to IGN about more Dragonball movies, and they seem pretty excited about a second movie, which already has a script.

Firstly Marsters told us why he hopes the film is successful enough to get a sequel and how many DB movies he’d like to see: “I hope [the movie does well] because my character only really gets interesting in the second film, I mean he’s interesting now! But his journey is really developed in the script for the second movie.”

He went on: “All I know is I’ve been signed to three movies, but I would like to make five – seven of them. You could just pretty much paint by numbers using the wealth of source material to easily get the seven films. There’s that much there.”

Meanwhile Chatwin is also obviously thinking about Dragonball as a series of movies, with the actor seeing Evolution as an introduction piece to the wider universe.

He said: “There’s a whole generation of kids waiting to be introduced to Dragonball, so this first movie is really important for that. I mean the main plot is the battle between Piccolo and Goku, but this first film still serves to introduce the characters and where they’re from and what they’re deals are and so to cover that ground really takes up most of the first movie.”

He goes on: “I know what they have in store for the second one and it’s really cool! It’s more in the vein of the Dragonball saga… it goes into other places, there’s other characters, other fighters and there’s a lot of action that is just really awesome.

“It actually goes more into Dragon Ball Z land and it’s just really exciting. It goes into the whole legend of Dragonball. I cant really say more than that but it made me think this is a cool franchise to be a part off, because there’s so much we haven’t shown yet.”

I currently have no plans to see Dragonball Evolution when it is released in just over a weeks time, so this sequel talk doesn’t really interest me much. Dragonball fans, would you be interested in a sequel?

    I do plan on seeing it, even thou I know I'm going to hate it. I'm a fan of Dragonball and DBZ, but I'm not too sure if I want another of these made. Fox does know how too kill a good thing. Just look at the second F4 and X-Men 3.

    There is only one solution for the Dragonball film franchise and that is:

    Reboot along with a new studio behind it and better cast & crew. I'm sure if they hire a creative/innovative writer they could make a understandable Dragonball Z film with proper order and structure.

    All of u people who think movies r suppose to be like the original are idiots. Movies have always been about same characters and ideology but a different story line. This is the way it is, this is the way its going to be, this is the way it has always been. These are the veins of movies. Never will a story be repeated, only rewritten. This is the law of film (X-Men, Spider man, Race to Witch Mountain, Watchmen) So be grateful you get to see another story in another universe so shut up. I am the biggest Dragon Ball fan ever I own all the action figures and some very interesting collectibles the dvd's AND vhs' I even ripped the theme song from one of the episodes for my ring tone so shaddap about how everything sucks and just enjoy whatever comes your way
    AND YES I WILL SEE IT

    me2…but i strongly feel that they could have done a better movie, the writer really did suck, i liked justin chatwin but some of the other actores overacted a little, i think there solucion is not necesarily to reboot, i think vegeta is the greatest caracter of the series, you being a die hard dragon ball fan you should know it, i think they should make a spin off of the vegeta story before the sequel, but of course with a bigger budget, a really good actor and a dam better writer, showing the destruction of planet vegeta and the saiyan race, and how vegeta wines up being freezas soldier, vegeta's story is really dramatic it could make a good film, it could shut up the critics and calm down the die hard fans and bring new fans for the sequel..

    yes becuase what people fail to realize is the movie was “Dragonball” not Dragonball Z. It only got interesting watching Goku become stronger and stronger until finally being the strongest in the universe.
