Movies

Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone

Dragon Ball Z: Dead Zone, (ドラゴンボールZ オラの悟飯を返せッ!!, Doragon Bōru Zetto: Ora no Gohan o Kaese!!) also known as Dragon Ball Z: The Movie, is the fourth film in the Dragon Ball franchise and the first based on Dragon Ball Z. It was released on July 15, 1989 in Japan. The movies events take place before Z and Raditz's arrival on Earth. Notably, the character Garlic Jr. would later reappear as a filler character in the anime.

Synopsis

In order to wish for immortality and avenge his father, Garlic Jr. collects the Dragon Balls, kidnapping Goku's son Gohan in the process. Goku, Kami, Piccolo, and Krillin unite to rescue Gohan and save the world from being sucked into the dead zone.


Dubbing History

Dead Zone was first dubbed by FUNimation, in association with Pioneer Entertainment, utilizing the same Vancouver-based voice actors from Ocean Productions as Saban's dub for the TV series. In contrast with Saban's highly edited and censored dub for the series, the movie was dubbed uncut and with the original Japanese score by Shunsuke Kikuchi left intact. Though when aired on Toonami, the opening and end credit music was replaced with the Saban/Ocean Dub's opening "Rock the Dragon" by Shuki Levy, and it was also edited for content. These edits included profanity, the scene when Goku emerges naked from fishing underwater, and the scene when Gohan urinates on Krillin's head from high above.

The movie was dubbed again in France by the AB Groupe for European distribution under the title In Pursuit of Garlic. The AB Groupe dubs were based on the French dub and had little rewriting to help mold the dialogue to the animations mouth. It would air in the Netherlands and on Toonami in the United Kingdom. The quality of the AB Groupe dubs (known as "The Big Green" dub in reference to the nickname given to Piccolo in this dub) is infamous in the Dragon Ball fanbase for its poor syncing, unfitting and limited casting choices and motor mouth dialogue. This dub is included as an alternate track on DVD in the Netherlands.

After Pioneer's distribution license for Movies 1-3 and Saban's initial dub of Episodes 1-67 expired, FUNimation would go back and redub them with their own in-house dubbing cast. Their dub was first released on DVD in 2005 with a new score by Mark Menza, though later releases would also include an audio track with Shunsuke Kikuchi's original score left intact.

Notes

  • Christopher Sabat is mis-credited as the voice of the Ox-King in the FUNimation dub.
  • Lisa Ann Beley replaces Laara Sadiq as Chi-Chi in the Pioneer/Ocean Dub of the movie, as well as for Movie 2.
  • Toshio Furukawa's voice from the original Japanese version is retained in the AB Groupe dub at the beginning of this film, when Piccolo screams and destroys a large rock formation.
  • In the AB Groupe dub, Sansho's voice is filled in two different times by different voice actors; David Gasman when he says "Yes, sire!" and Ed Marcus when he says "Who said that?" The voice difference is obvious.
  • Ed Marcus voices Ginger's first lines, before David Gasman voices him for the majority of the film.

Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest

Dragon Ball Z: The World's Strongest (ドラゴンボールZ この世で一番強いヤツ, Doragon Bōru Zetto: Kono Yo de Ichiban Tsuyoi Yatsu) is the fifth film in the Dragon Ball franchise and the second based on Dragon Ball Z. It was released on March 10, 1990 in Japan.

Synopsis

The evil Dr. Kochin uses the dragon balls to resurrect his mentor, Dr. Wheelo, in an effort to take over the world. Dr. Wheelo, his body having been destroyed by the avalanche that killed him fifty years before, desires the body of the strongest fighter in the world as his new vessel. Believing Roshi to be the world's strongest warrior, Dr. Kochin abducts Bulma and forces Roshi to surrender himself to save her. When Goku hears of their abduction, he goes to their rescue.


Dubbing History

The World's Strongest was first dubbed by Ocean Productions, commissioned by Pioneer Entertainment in conjunction with FUNimation. Like Dead Zone, it was dubbed uncut and with the original Japanese score. Though when aired on Toonami, the opening and end credit music was replaced with the Saban/Ocean Dub's opening "Rock the Dragon" by Shuki Levy, and it was also edited for content (mainly profanity).

AB Groupe would also do their own dub for the movie released under the title of The Strongest Guy in the World which aired on Toonami in the United Kingdom and got a release on DVD there.

When Pioneer's license expired, FUNimation went back to redub the movie with their own in-house cast. The movie, released on DVD in 2006, contained a new score composed by Nathan M. Johnson, who previously composed the score for the redub of Episodes 1-67. When later re-released, a version of the dub with the original score by Shunsuke Kikuchi was made available as an alternate audio track.

Notes

  • In the Ocean dub of the movie (as well as their uncut dub of Movie 3), Goku's Kaio-ken technique was pronounced correctly compared to both the Ocean and FUNimation dubs of the series. FUNimation would eventually follow suit with their dubs of Dragon Ball Z Kai and Dragon Ball Super years later. On the other hand, Dr. Wheelo's name is pronounced "Dr. Willow" in the Ocean dub of the movie, while the FUNimation dub pronounces it as spelled.

Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might

Dragon Ball Z: The Tree of Might, (ドラゴンボールZ 地球まるごと超決戦, Doragon Bōru Zetto: Chikyū Marugoto Chōkessen) also known as Dragon Ball Z: Super Battle in the World, is the sixth film in the Dragon Ball franchise and the third based on Dragon Ball Z. It was released on July 7, 1990 in Japan.

Synopsis

A Saiyan named Turles has come to Earth in order to plant the Tree of Might, which will sap all of the life from earth in order to bear fruit that will greatly increase the strength of whoever eats it. Goku and the Z Warriors cannot let this happen and duke it out with Turles's group for the sake of the planet.


Dubbing History

The Tree of Might was first dubbed by Ocean Productions under Saban Entertainment as a three-part episode of the TV series, first airing as part of the second season in November 1997. It contained the editing and censoring that their dub of the series did, along with the Shuki Levy music score. One of the more infamous edits was when Turles was holding Gohan by the head and forcing his eyes open, being edited to move Gohan to being held by shoulders, giving him a very wonky looking expression. The episodic cut of the movie aired between Episodes 45 and 46 of the Namek saga.

The Ocean voice cast would later return to do an uncut dub of the movie under Pioneer Entertainment, and released on VHS and DVD in 1998. The cast was mostly the same, though Peter Kelamis replaced Ian James Corlett as Goku. Like the Pioneer produced dubs of Dead Zone and The World's Strongest, the dub retained the original Japanese score, as well as dialogue closer to the original Japanese script.

AB Groupe would also produce a dub for the movie which would air on Toonami in the United Kingdom and later receive a release on DVD there. Incidentally, the three-episode Saban Ocean Dub of the movie would also air there before.

After Pioneer's sub-license of the movie expired, FUNimation went back to do their own in-house dub of the movie. It was first released on DVD in 2006 with a new score by Nathan Johnson. Subsequent re-releases include the movie with the original Japanese soundtrack as an audio track option.

Notes

  • Ocean's Episodic Cut of the Tree of Might wasn't released to home video until FUNimation released the limited edition "Rock the Dragon" DVD collection in 2013. Even then, the three parts were edited together (as it was aired on Toonami).
  • The episodic dub marks the last performance of Ian James Corlett as Goku before he left over pay disputes.
  • Alec Willows doesn't return to voice Oolong for the Pioneer-produced Ocean Dub. The reason isn't clear, as he reprised him for their dub of The World's Strongest.

Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug

Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug (ドラゴンボールZ 地球まるごと超決戦, Doragon Bōru Zetto: Chikyū Marugoto Chōkessen) is the seventh film in the Dragon Ball franchise and the fourth based on Dragon Ball Z. It was released on March 9, 1991 in Japan.

Synopsis

When an meteor nearly destroys Planet Earth, a space ship emerges from the meteor and lands on Earth. The new terror is Lord Slug, a nomadic alien who plans to destroy all life on Earth, and the only one who can stop him is Goku.


Dubbing History

Lord Slug was the first Dragon Ball Z movie to be dubbed by FUNimation's in-house recording studio in Fort Worth, Texas. The dub featured a new soundtrack featuring American rock bands and some pieces from Faulconer Productions' score for Dragon Ball Z. As with the previous movies, the movie would eventually be re-released with the Japanese soundtrack intact.

A dub based on the French dub was done by the AB Groupe for European distribution under the title Super Saiya Son Goku. Their version of the film aired on Toonami in the UK and was later given a DVD release there.

  • Several of the actors from the Creative Products dub also participated in some alternate English dubs for Animax Asia.
  • Like Lord Slug, Funimation's English dub originally featured music by American rock bands, but would later have a version with the original Japanese score on later releases.

Synopsis

When New Namek falls under attack by a massive planet of metal and an army of lethal robots, the Guardian of Earth, Dende, reforms the Earths Special Forces to go to New Namek and save his people. Not knowing what to expect, but not expecting what they find, the Z Warriors find themselves landing in the frying pan, for the force behind the invasion of Namek is none other than Koola, Frieza's older brother, who Goku supposedly killed long ago. With Koola more powerful than before, and this time seemingly invincible, the power of a Super Saiyan may not be enough to save the galaxy this time. But Koola and Goku are about to find out that they're both full of surprises.

Notes

  • Phillip Wilburn is erroneously credited as Android 13. Wilburn had originally auditioned for the role, but moved to Los Angeles before recording.[1]
  • The English dub adds in additional dialogue for Android 15 that was not in the original movie. In the original Japanese version, the only thing he ever said was "Son Goku" (multiple times) and "Trunks" (once).
  • In the English dub, Android 13 mocks Future Trunks' hair calling it a "thirty dollar haircut", despite the fact that the Dragon Ball universe only has Zeni as its known currency.

Notes

  • This is the final known Dragon Ball movie to be dubbed by the AB Groupe.
  • The AB Groupe dub predates the FUNimation dub (presumably anyhow, as the exact date isn't clear, but 2003 is when their dub in general started to be distributed).

Mr. Satan is challenged to a fight by an old rival, and he is taken to an island where the fight is to be held. Accompanying him are Android 18, who is making sure he doesn't skip town before paying the money he owes her for letting him win the World Martial Arts Tournament, and Trunks and Goten, who are stowaways. When they get there they find that the rival doesn't want to fight himself, but rather has created a force of genetically engineered bio-warriors to fight Satan. Unfortunately for everyone involved, one of these bio-warriors was made from the DNA of Broly, and when he is released, all bets are off.

Notes

  • The English dub of Fusion Reborn is the only Dragon Ball Z film to be rated by the Motion Picture Association of America. It is rated PG for action violence, thematic elements, and rude humor.
  • The Adolf Hitler parody, "The Dictator" comments in the English dub on Goten and Trunks Super Saiyan form; comparing them to the Nazi physical ideal, blonde hair, blue eyes, and super strength. In the original Japanese dub, he instead states that they are little punks that dyed their hair.

Notes

  • In the English dub, when Shenron is summoned, he states that he will grant one wish. This is a mistake since this movie takes place after the fight with Majin Buu, whereas the dragon should be able to grant three wishes like Porunga.

Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - the Father of Goku

Dragon Ball Z: Bardock - The Father of Goku (ドラゴンボールZ たったひとりの最終決戦~フリーザに挑んだZ戦士 孫悟空の父~, Doragon Bōru Zetto: Tatta Hitori no Saishū Kessen ~Furīza ni Idonda Zetto Senshi Son Gokū no Chichi~; lit. "Dragon Ball Z: A Lonesome, Final Battle 'The Father of the Z Warrior Son Goku, who Challenged Freeza'") is the first Dragon Ball Z TV special, which is based on the manga of the same name. It was broadcast on Fuji Television on October 17, 1990, between Dragon Ball Z episodes 63 and 64.

Synopsis

Bardock, a low ranking Sayian warrior, is given the power to see into the future. Seeing both the fate of his race and that of his newborn son, Goku, Bardock attempts to lead a rebellion against the space tyrant Frieza in order to prevent the impending massacre of the Sayians.


Dubbing History

The Special was first dubbed by FUNimation in 2000, and released on VHS and DVD in 2001. The DVD featured a new English dub with a soundtrack by American rock bands and a score done by Dale Kelly, Andy Baylor and Mark Akin. It premiered on Toonami on September 5, 2003, kicking off a month-long event called "DBZ Movies," during which a Dragon Ball Z feature aired every Friday.

In 2003, AB Groupe produced their own dub for European distribution, airing on Toonami in the United Kingdom under the title of Dragon Ball Z: The Father of Goku.

As with what was done with the series itself, FUNimation went back to their dubs of the specials and remastered their dub for them as well. They cleaned up certain performances, and replaced certain voices, such as Christopher Sabat as Nappa, replacing him with Phil Parsons, who voiced Nappa for the redub of Saiyan Saga. It was released together with The History of Trunks on DVD and Blu-Ray in 2008, with the option to watch to the dub with the original score by Shunsuke Kikuchi.

  • The English dub renamed many of the characters
    • Tora was originally named Toma
    • Fasha was originally named Selypa
    • Shugesh was originally named Panbukin
    • Borgos was originally named Toteppo
  • Unlike both the Japanese and FUNimation versions, Vegeta's child form was voiced by a woman, Sharon Mann, in the AB Groupe dub. However, in an interesting inversion, during the brief visions of adult Vegeta, she still voices him.

Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks

Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks (絶望への反抗!! 残された超戦士・悟飯とトランクス, Zetsubō e no Hankō!! Nokosareta Chō-Senshi • Gohan to Torankusu) is the second Dragon Ball Z TV special. Originally airing in Japan on February 24, 1993, between episodes 175 and 176, the special is based on an extra chapter of the manga series. It depicts an alternate version of the future in which Goku dies from a virus and a teenage Trunks tries to defeat the androids ravaging Earth.

Synopsis

Goku has died of a heart virus, leaving his friends and loved ones behind, but it was a foreshadowing of the horrific events to come. Six months later, the bloodthirsty Android duo attacked the city, and all the Z Warriors (Piccolo, Vegeta, Yamcha, Tien, Chiaozu, Krillin, and Yajirobe) were killed. In this dark future, Gohan and his student Trunks are the last defense against these deadly killing machines.


Dubbing History

The Special was first dubbed by FUNimation in 2000, being released on VHS and DVD the same year. The DVD featured a new soundtrack by American rock bands, such as Dream Theater and Bootsy Collins with Buckethead, along with a score done by Dale Kelly, Andy Baylor and Mark Akin. It premiered on Toonami on September 12, 2003 as part of a month-long event called "DBZ Movies," during which a Dragon Ball Z feature aired every Friday.

In 2003, AB Groupe produced their own dub for European distribution, airing on Toonami in the United Kingdom under the title of Dragon Ball Z: Gohan and Trunks.

As with what was done with the series itself, FUNimation went back to their dub of the specials and remastered their dub for them as well. They cleaned up certain performances, and replaced certain voices, namely Mark Britten with Kyle Hebert as Ox-King. It was released together with Bardock - The Father of Goku on DVD and Blu-Ray in 2008, with the option to watch to the dub with the original score by Shunsuke Kikuchi.

Speedy Video also released a VCD of this special, subtitled The History of Trunk, but it is uncertain which language audio the disc uses.

Overall Notes

  • All the theatrical films from 1989-1995 had had an English dub recorded and released exclusively in Malaysia by Speedy Video, thus titled the "Speedy Dub". These dubs are infamous for their abysmal acting, small voice cast, and extremely poor grammar. They were released on VCD with poor VHS-like quality. The exact origins of this dub or when they were recorded are an enigma, though a Youtube commenter has dropped information that Speedy made a contract with Saban Entertainment to obtain the rights to distribution in Malaysia. However, when Funimation took full control, Saban backed out of the deal, leaving Speedy with the task of having to make their own dubs.[2]
