There is some Dragon Ball live action chinese film out there called Dragon Ball: The Magic Begins or something. I don't think it has that much to do with the series apart from copying the name and such. I don't like the sound of this film. Here is a review from Planet Namek.

Dragonball - The Magic Begins (Live-action)


Synopsis:

The story starts in a village somewhere in China that receives the one-star Dragon Pearl as a gift. The village is attacked by marauding aliens in search of the Dragon Pearls. (Anyone familiar with the series knows what will happen in all seven Dragon Pearls are found.) The leader of the aliens, Emperor Horn, takes the Dragon Pearl and disposes of the village's chief, whose daughter Jade escapes the carnage. Horn sends his top fighters, Malilia and Zebrata, after a Dragon Pearl somewhere in the east. Here is where we meet Sparkle and his adopted grandson Monkey Boy. While gathering dinner, Monkey Boy meets up with Seeto, a young girl whose quest for the Dragon Pearls brings her to the area. She spots Zebrata and Malilia heading towards Sparkle's home. They are too late when they arrive, as both Sparkle and his four-star Dragon Pearl are missing. From here they meet the cowardly Piggy, a shape-shifter with a thing for girls, the thief Westwood and his sidekick, a talking cockatoo called Miss Knowwhat (Westwood wants the Dragon Pearls so that he can wish away his fear of girls) ,and Turtle Man, the sex-crazed kung-fu master who owns the Magic Cloud later given to Monkey Boy. It all climaxes in a decisive battle for the Dragon Pearls in Jade's village.

I know! I know what happens in the original Dragon Ball and that was a kinda rip off!
MAYBE if I saw it I might think it was ok.

God you guys suck!
There are rules when making a succesful trilogy!


Oh sorry.... actually when a live action adaptation is made from a book, cartoon or video game you always have to expect:
- Poor alterations to characters/other factors
- Poor acting
- Low budget
- More Poor acting
- and finally a small group who love it

------------------
- It's not enough to love, if you can't do it with the heart of the dragon

These are who the characters are based on:

Horn-Pilaf
Sparkle-Son Gohan
Monkey Boy-Goku
Seeto-Bulma
Piggy-Oolong
Westwood-Yamcha
Miss Knowwhat-Puar
Turtle Man-Master Roshi
Jade-Chichi
Or that's what I think.

no, its official. its called "dragonball : the legend begins" it did change character names, but if it wasnt official it would not be able to have the 'dragonball' title.

Howcome?

Even though Son Gohan was dead in Dragon ball he was Goku (Monkey Boy) 's grandfather. They just changed it so he is in it more right?
