More Movie Taglines:
- This Easter the legend comes to life.
- Master your destiny.
- Master Roshi: In an ancient time, Earth was nearly destroyed. Not by man, but by Gods from the sky.
Master Roshi: Seven mystics banded together to fight the invaders. They created the Dragon Balls.
Master Roshi: Now the signs have appeared again, the evil has returned. Only one chosen warrior has the power to defeat this threat.
Lord Piccolo: With this Dragon Ball, I take my vengeance... upon the Earth.
Goku: We have to find the Dragon balls before the eclipse.
- According to James Marsters, his role of Piccolo is a complex, Shakespearean one: "He used to be a force of good, but he was imprisoned, making him very angry, and then he escapes... The cool thing is anybody who's seen Dragon Ball knows that Lord Piccolo transforms into THE Piccolo, and that is a whole other ball of wax; heroic wouldn't be the wrong term, but it's a long journey."
It was suggested to give the entire cast special wigs of different colors, to keep the essence of the "Dragon Ball" anime;, but James Wong vetoed this idea to make the film more realistic. However, Emmy Rossum had a blue streak dyed in her hair and Justin Chatwin had his hair touched to make it spiky so that their respective characters possessed a classic yet distinctive look.
James Kyson-Lee auditioned for the role for Yamcha.
Ron Perlman was offered the role of Piccolo, but turned it down to work on Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008) instead.
Producer Stephen Chow is a big fan of Dragon Ball, and signed on to the film immediately. He was deeply interested in being the director, but decided to just serve as producer because he believes in directing only his own original stories.
