Dragon Ball: the teaser of the new official website

Dragon Ball

Goku Day is upon us, and this important event could be one of the reasons why a teaser announcing the new Dragon Ball website has been released. The Dragon Ball Super anime is on hiatus, but there are still many news in sight for fans, also thanks to the manga, which continues its run.

If you are wondering what Goku Day is, here is an explanation. The numbers "5" and "9" in Japanese can be pronounced respectively as "Go" and "Ku" in Japanese: for this reason, it was chosen as the day to celebrate Goku Day on May 9th. While the details of the celebrations for this very special day are still a bit of a mystery, we know that the cast of voice actors of Dragon Ball Super and Super Dragon Ball Heroes will be attending a special event that could hold many surprises for those who follow the adventures of Goku and his friends, the so-called Z Fighters.

Some information about it and not only could be shared through the new Dragon Ball website, which was officially announced thanks to a short video presentation.

At the moment, Super Dragon Ball Heroes is exploring the arc narrative called "Space-Time War", in which Goku and Vegeta ended up in a new universe created by Fuu. It seems that in this new arc the Z Fighters will have to face new tough battles in this non-canonical animated series created specifically for the web.

Dragon Ball Gets Best Live-Action Take with 'Last Stand' Fan Trailer

Dragon Ball has been through the wringer where live-action is concerned. Years ago, the franchise gave its first official go at the medium with help from Hollywood, but the result was a hot mess. To this day, Dragonball Evolution is considered one of the worst film adaptations to date, but one fan is trying to rewrite that narrative.

The gift came from Instagram user daniishiqbal11 who hit up Youtube with a special fan trailer. The user decided to cut Dragon Ball into a live-action trailer worthy of Goku, and the reel has earned kudos from fans all over.

As you can see above, the trailer has a very specific art style that would impress any Zack Snyder fan. The reel goes through some of the biggest parts of Dragon Ball Z as Earth comes under fire. The fan trailer aims to promote a movie called Dragon Ball Movie: The Last Stand. Clearly, this would-be film would be an epic one if it were real, and it gives hope for what could come in the future.

After all, Hollywood is starting to recognize its shortcomings with anime at last. The medium is too popular to ignore as sales are continuing to rise globally year after year. With manga following suit, the anime industry cannot be ignored, and Hollywood would love to adapt some of its best hits. So while Death Note might have missed the target a couple of years back, Netflix and other studios are trying to make up for their anime flops.

No flop is bigger than Dragonball Evolution, and even the crew behind the film recognizes as much. The franchise's creator Akira Toriyama was not a fan of the project, and it seems very unlikely he'll sign off on another remake any time soon. But if the right offer comes through, Goku could return to the big screen in a style like this trailer if we're lucky! It would be difficult to make a worse adaptation than Dragonball Evolution, and with anime's reputation in mainstream culture growing by the day, we'd like to believe studios would tap actual fans to oversee this big-name projection.
