Dragonball 2 – Sequel Plans11.04.09 # Sequel # 151 Comments
A fair bit of Dragonball 2 talk has been thrown around in recent weeks. So what has been said and how likely is a Dragonball sequel?
Justin Chatwin (Goku) revealed earlier this month that a draft of the sequel script is already written, “They’ve written a second one and it’s pretty far out there. It really goes to some different places that I’ve never seen in any comic book adaptation.”
James Marsters (Piccolo) would like to see the franchise run and run. He claims to be a die-hard fan of the anime and wants to fulfil the arc of Piccolo in live-action. “We’re going to get to ‘Dragonball Z’ later,” he says, “where Piccolo becomes youthful and he’s going to become the Piccolo that most people recognize.”
For what it’s worth, imdb is listing a sequel called Dragonball: Reborn, with a release date of 2011.
What are the odds of Dragonball 2 getting a theatrical release? The first movie opened well in Asia, but sunk like a stone in its second week as bad word of mouth spread. It isn’t anything like as popular in the U.S. (where it opens this weekend), and Street Fighter tanked last month. It would seem likely at this point any sequel will be straight to DVD.
