Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • To prepare for his role as Son Goku, Justin Chatwin read all the Dragon Ball comics and "The Journey to the West," the Chinese literary classic which inspired the Dragon Ball saga; he practised martial arts and acrobatics; and to get into Goku's character (a likeable child-man), he told jokes to fellow cast members between filming breaks to increase the rapport between them/their characters.
  • The film was mostly shot in an abandoned jeans factory in Durango, Mexico with blue and green screens.
  • The filmmakers decided to keep the number of characters in the film to an absolute minimum for a tighter story and better characterization. Therefore, sentient animals like Oolong and Puar were removed for realism, and fan-favourites like Tien and Krillin were removed for better focus on the core characters.
  • Goku has been compared to Superman, and is indeed known as the Japanese counterpart of Superman. The film contains certain allusions to Superman: - a planet is seen exploding with a greenish glow - Goku as a college student keeps his abilities a secret - Goku's grandfather inspires him shortly before he passes away, like Jonathan Kent - and a supporting character in both films is killed and resurrected (Lois Lane, Master Roshi).
