First Images from Dragonball Movie Set

Color me surprised. I didn’t know James Wong’s “Dragonball” live-action movie was already shooting. Well it is, down south in Mexico City, where these pictures of star Justin Chatwin were snapped on the set. Chatwin will be playing the oddly named Goku, the movie’s hero. Nice car, Goku.

A young boy named Goku seeks out upon his grandfather’s dying request to find the great Master Roshi and gather all seven Dragon Balls (of which he has one) in order to prevent Piccolo from succeeding in his desire to use the Dragon Balls to take over the world.

    I heared somewhere that they will be using “ADVANCED” CGI to make Chatwin’s hair look like Goku’s. But they can’t make it look too much like the anime Goku’s it would look stupid and cheezy. And I heared that the Namekians(in later films) and Picollo will be able to shape-shift so he can make himself look human in public, but he will mostly be in his green reptillian form that we all know and love. As for the shoulder pads-cape and the turbin I don’t know what Wong’s plan will be/ Keeping my fingers crossed though. Hoping that this will be the summer hit.

    ummmm…..I kinda have an idea what it would look like in real life. when they took this pic they were not filming it. In real life they are suppose to be thin. in real life they dont look huge. they are adding special effects anyway………I also saw in the backround, there is the same car as you can see in transformers………I think his face looks sharp and great for a super saiyan……..As you can see the clothing is orange which is seen on the charecters the one with the kenji of master roshi….If you have watched naruto, when they are in the tornaments you can see ino as wearing orange…i do see many simalarities…..in the anime dbz they have sighns showing the inoshikacho as you can see from episode 82 which is short for ino…. trust me i know what it looks like.

    I am not flaming or endorsing the movie. I happen to love Dragonball/Z/GT and personally cant wait to see it. But I do hope they make Goku at least bulked up like he is for real and not skinny. And by for real I mean in the anime. lol. But anyways I cant wait for it to come out.
