Manga creator felt surprised, but says it might be treated as a different dimension
The Oricon entertainment news source posted a promotional video for James Wong and 20th Century Fox’s live-action adaptation of Akira Toriyama’s Dragonball manga, and Toriyama prefaced the video with a written comment:
“As the original creator, I had a feeling of “Huh?” upon seeing the screenplay and the character designs, but the director, all the actors, the staff, and the rest are nothing but “ultra” high-caliber people. Maybe the right way for me and all the fans to appreciate it is as a New Dragonball of a different dimension. Perhaps, this might become a great masterpiece of power! Hey, I look forward to it!! ”
The film will open in Japan on March 13, and will then open in America on April 8.
