Extended Fan Trailer for DragonBall Z – Saiyan Saga Fights its Way Online

Dragonball Z Fan Trailer

I don’t know much about “DragonBall Z”. There was that movie with Chow Yun Fat a few years back that a lot of people really, really hated. I mean, really really hated. I’ve never seen so much hate for a movie since the film “Please Hate Us and We’ll Give You Money: The Movie” came out about two decades ago. I did play a “DragonBall Z” game once on the PS3 that was kind of fun, if a tad repetitive.

All that is to say, I haven’t a clue if this fan-made extended trailer for “DragonBall Z – Saiyan Saga” is faithful to the comics/anime/games/franchise or not. (See, I don’t even know the difference between just standard “DragonBall Z” and “DragonBall Z – Saiyan Saga”.) But it sure looks like directors Harry and George Kirby, who also did pretty much everything else on the production (probably catering and laundry, too), know their stuff.

The short could probably have used a little variety in terms of location, but I guess when you’re working with a limited budget, your choices are a tad limited. I’m not sure if this is meant to entice someone to give them the go-ahead (and the budget) to make a real “DragonBall Z” film, but if it is, it’s a pretty darn good try.

    wow even with cheap effects and not so good make up this is 1 million times better than the dragonball movie.

    That was amazing. Given their low-budget, this still turned out way better than that Dragonball Evolution movie. Too bad the trailer itself was just the project and not a full feature film.
    I hope someone with money will see their talent and give them a shot at a full feature film! I can’t even imagine what they could do with a Hollywood budget.

    Yeah I saw this and was like hmmm not bad. That said DBZ is something I STILL think is not made for adaptation. It would really look silly when they get to Super Saiyan and such. I mean if someone actually pulls that off convincingly then I will truly be Impressed.

      with the right money right actors and writers and a true fan of the DBZ franchise i believe it can be done and i dont believe super saiyan will look silly i imagine it as them shinning very bright with the look of lots of energy coming off them. In this day an age it can be done no doubt

      If people will watch a movie where vampires glitter in sunlight and dont die I think they could pull off a DBZ film

        Unless they find a way to make Super Saiyans look less ridiculous it won’t work. Twilight only works because of the target audience. Fans wouldn’t want a silly looking Super Saiyan, they’d flip out even harder than they did for DBZ Evolution. That got the effects right but lacked a good story, and fights, but I still think super saiyan would be hard to pull off. Now if I saw something that looked like a good representation of it, I’d be all for it.
