Rumor: Disney Making a Live-Action Dragon Ball Film With All-Asian Cast

A new rumor is pointing to Disney somehow greenlighting a live-action film adaptation for Dragon Ball.

The new rumor (via WeGotThisCovered) notes a source, who previously (and later proven right) confirmed Mouse House was developing an Aladdin sequel, says Disney is producing a live-cation adaptation of the TV anime Dragon Ball.

Reportedly, the film has a “very big budget” and an “exclusively Asian cast”, although it remains unclear if the film will focus on Dragon Ball or its sequel, Dragon Ball Z.

The previous attempt by Hollywood to produce a live-action Dragon Ball film resulted in the highly disturbing and depressingly awful Dragonball Evolution (pictured above), which premiered in 2009.

As with any rumor, take this with a grain of salt. What do you think? Could Disney produce an authentic, live-action Dragon Ball film? With an all-Asian cast? Sound off in the comments below!

    they’re going to fill it with sjw propaganda i bet.

    all of the sexy stuff and kame sennin’s sexual harassment will be removed because it will trigger certain non-dragonball fans

    i won’t be surprise if they make some important characters gay/trans too

    You know what? let them do it, it will be a glorious train wreck and unlike Star Wars all the source material will be unaffected.
