The keening of Dragonball fans fills the air with renewed anguish with the news that the soon to be blockbuster disaster movie Dragonball Evolution has already had the script to a sequel written and made ready for production; the sequel promises to be “really, really cool” and to “more in-depth into a real Dragonball series, the kind of intergalactic world of Dragonball”.
The first film is still two months off its US release.
Actor Justin Chatwin, who plays “Goku”, said by some to be based on a character of the same name in an anime of the same name, admitted that the script for the sequel was already complete:
“If there were to be a sequel I think it… well, I know that it would go to a really interesting place, because they already have the second script written.”
He goes on to reveal some details of the story:
“It’s really, really cool. The second one goes more into the whole legacy and the genealogy of Dragonball. It goes more in-depth into a real Dragonball series, the kind of intergalactic world of Dragonball.”

He does not say production has begun, so it seems probable the producers are waiting to see how many commoners and foolish Dragonball fans attend theatres before they commit to producing a new chapter in the already dread franchise.
Interestingly, the film is getting released in Japan first, on the 13th of March, and in the UK on the 3rd of April, and the US on the 8th of April.
As we saw, the Japanese version will have an all-star voice cast, including luminary bikini idol Aya Hirano, and fans have been intrigued by the possibility of watching a fansub of the Japanese dub rather than the full Hollywood version – perhaps fans will care to skip the theatre version in favour of the Japanese version?
