Dragon Ball - movie 1: The legend of Shen Long ...
Just a simple retelling of the first arc of Dragon Ball, except the characters meet differently and in a much faster way and with a completely different villain. The villain is now a once great king who found the blood rubies and will now do anything to get his hands on them, including destroying his kingdom. He is also after the dragon balls like the heroes.
It was release in theaters in Japan on December 20, 1986. This movie is a heavily modified retelling of the gathering of the Dragon Balls in the Emperor Pilaf Saga, but with King Gurumes taking Emperor Pilaf's role as the center villain. Like that initial said saga, it depicts how Goku meets Bulma, Yamcha, Oolong, Puar, and Master Roshi, as well as the first quest for the Dragon Balls. They are all looking for the seve dragon balls for different reasons when they cross paths with king Gourmeth, who is also looking for the dragon balls. Another villain name Pasta is introduced as she is a redheaded female soldier. While her friend Vongo is a big strong male soldier. However King Gourmeth wants to eat the Dragon Balls in order to quench his appetite. These events would be retold again in the tenth anniversary film, Dragon Ball movie 4. In the English version, this film is call Dragon Ball Curse of the Blood Rubies. But in its original theatrical run, it was just titled Dragon Ball, however for subsequent video releases in Japan it was renamed.
Yamcha saves Bulma and the others from the bombs. Bulma and the gang get inside the king's room, where Goku meets up with them. The king gets up and mutates to a big monster. Goku challenges the king and blasts him in the stomach with a Kamehameha. The king's stomach begins to glow. Bulma realizes the balls are in his stomach, and throws the last ball into his mouth. Shenron, the dragon, emerges destroying the castle. The Dragon tells someone to make a wish. Penny wishes for the land to be peaceful and beautiful. The Dragon removes all the Blood Rubies from the soil and restores the land. The Dragon disappears and the balls split up in seven directions. The king and everything in the land is back to normal. Bulma and Yamcha get together. Penny gives the king an apple, and the king likes it, but wants to keep all the trees and flowers of the kingdom. Goku gives Raven her coin back, calls out for Flying Nimbus, and flies off into the sky.
The name "Sheng Long" was based on a mistranslation of "Shoryuken", found in one of Ryu's early victory quotes, "You must defeat Sheng Long to stand a chance". The large amount of fans questioning the quote lead to a rumor spread by Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM) that Sheng Long was actually a secret boss character fought under extreme conditions. The whole hoax would become one of the most famous hoaxes and video game legends in gaming history, spreading globally.
However, Capcom later unexpectedly approved the addition of Sheng Long. Noon designed Sheng Long's appearance, giving him black gi pants and a long, green, padded/quilted, sleeveless gi style top which was tied off with a black belt, long white braided hair, Fu Manchu moustache, a thick black ribbon over his eyes due to being blinded by Akuma and one hand taking the form of a dragon's claw, described as a result of his power being so advanced that he began to physically manifest dragon like attributes. Capcom approved the design and Luis Mangubat an artist from the development team posed as Sheng Long. However, the character was left unfinished because of time constraints.
Shenron/Shenlong is named after the spiritual dragon of the same name in Chinese mythology, who is known as the master of storms and a bringer of rain (to the point of being a weather entity). Shenlong is often shown with azure/green-colored scales and is said to be five-clawed (marking its stats as an imperial dragon).
It is a common tale that those in old days of China would appease a Shenlong to pray for plentiful rainfalls. However, akin to both the symbolism of rulers and dragons alike it is easy to enrage one with a poor gift or in a more common way (ruffling their scales via the "nilin/gekirin" concept). In the Shenlong's case, how they vent their said rage is often through creating destructive rainstorms and hurricanes.
As reported by The Verge, there's been talk of a Mega Man move since 2015, and in 2018, Capcom said the movie would be live-action. What we learned about this week was Netflix's purported connection. Sites, including IGN and Mega Man fansite Rockman Corner, reported that the Supermarché webpage originally said Joost and Schulman are working on "an adaptation of Capcom's Mega Man for Chernin Entertainment and Netflix," but as of writing, the page no longer names Netflix. The Verge noted, however, that Netflix has a first-look deal with Chernin, so the idea is very plausible. 041b061a72
