Came across this article in my news feed: https://www.themarysue.com/disney-owns-film-rights-to-dragonball/

I definitely agree with Dragon Ball evolution being considered hot garbage. Do you think Disney could do any better now that it owns the rights? I wonder if they would even consider doing something with Dragon Ball. And what about casting? They seem to be "diversifying" existing characters. This would seem like a realistic opportunity to have an Asian cast representing Dragon Ball characters.

I don’t see how it could be properly adapted. The CGI budget alone would be monstrous. Some things just work well in a specific medium. I say leave Dragon Ball an anime. With proper writing and a big budget for an anime movie at the very least. It can do excellently.

I'm not one for live action Anime films, but I would love to see them do a proper Dragon Ball movie.
I'm not against them and have enjoyed a few. I'd also like to see that.

I've seen some amateurs film makers do it so I suspect a large corporation like Disney could afford it and make a profit, if done right, given the fan base.

True but Disney is a soulless mega corporation that concerns itself with profits and not necessarily good storytelling. Those fan film producers give a damn about the product they release. I don’t have much faith in a big tent pole release of Dragon Ball, let alone any anime title we hold dear. Akira has been in development hell for over 15 years.

I am not a fan of Disney, like at all. I haven't been in a long time. The more they expand as a corporation, the more it hurts me right in the meow meow.

That being said, I am not sure how I would feel about this. That movie was just awful. I was in shock the entire time watching it. Shock as in disbelief that someone could be proud enough to actually release a movie like that. Given the typical style of a lot of anime such as Dragon Ball, I can't see it being done right. It isn't like Cowboy Bebop where the characters can actually be portrayed by real life people and be passable. There are too many key characteristics that they would have to change just in the Saiyans alone.

I am not big on these kinds of films in the first place so I approach it with a glass half-empty. I would much rather get movies in animation than this.

I HATE DISNEY!!! why did they have to take over marvel? or Pixar, Pixar was doing so good until Disney took over and why did they have to take over starwars?
