I am a fan of Anime. It is truly one of my favorite things. I love the animation, the storylines, and the fun and quirky scripts. They hold a special place in my heart.
So, imagine my thrill when I saw a trailer for a Live-Action Dragonball movie! I wasn't expecting it at all! It was in the previews for Inkheart. When the trailer started, I thought Wow, this movie looks good...wonder what it is. And then it showed the Seven Mystics banding together and I about jumped out of my seat. And then they flashed to a cute young man with a high hairline and I knew. I knew!!!!! At this point I DID jump out of my seat and startled the poor Babycakes who was sleeping on my lap. He fortunately fell back asleep once his crazy Mama sat back down. I'm so excited. The movie is scheduled to open April 7, 2009. That's only TWO Months away! Yahoo!
Another great piece of news...M. Night Shyamalan is currently making a live-action version of Avatar: The Last Airbender. It will be a trilogy with the first movie scheduled for July 2010. Now, I love me some Dragonball, but it cannot compare with my love/obsession with all things Aang. The cast is all lined up. I'm not sure what they'll do for locations. I feel sorry for the actors who will portray Katara and Suko, because they start out in the icy cold. Brr! I do have to tell you...if a midnight showing is offered for this movie, I will be in line. Seriously. I know that I will probably be surrounded by a bunch of teeny-bops (afterall-it is a Nickelodeon show) but I will hold my head high!
So, I've got my next two years planned out. How about you??? ;)
