Dragon Ball continues to be one of the most popular shonen anime/manga out there, but let’s not forget that the series does have one live-action movie and it’s terrible. There’s no way that anyone will defend the travesty known as Dragon Ball: Evolution, which basically ignores all of the franchise’s lore and becomes a generic fantasy film that is far from unique, unlike Akira Toriyama's beloved series.
Well, Astor Alexander has one hell of a pitch for Disney, who now owns the license for Dragon Ball movies after the Fox purchase. Alexander presents us with a trilogy based on Dragon Ball Z, complete with concept art and some of the screenplay. Funnily enough, in order to make these arcs work as a film, Alexander changes the story a bit to make Vegeta the protagonist.
Alexander makes a fine point and it’s something a lot of the series’ fans are going to agree with, After all, Vegeta is one of the series’ most beloved characters and he has some of the best-written moments in the series and positioning him as a fantasy sci-fi hero is pretty cool. If Disney and Fox are planning to make more Dragon Ball Z movies, they should follow this pitch from Astor Alexander.
