They got a new actor to play Tien, also check out Krillin and Gohan! Plenty of other new features included as well! Check out the new video update below!

Also, when I asked them if they got permission to continue this project, if they would make a full length movie, they responded...

We would love to go and make a full length movie. Our initial plan is to make extended trailers for each one of the Sagas.

So, not only will they create a live action trailer for the Saiyan saga, they plan on doing one for the Namek/Freeza, Androids/Cell and Buu eras as well! Who would you cast for all the upcoming characters such as Trunks, the Androids, Mr. Satan, Freeza, Majin Buu, Cell and Adult Gohan? It should be interesting to see how they bring Super Saiyans and other transformations to life.

They will begin filming the first trailer next month in May 2012, so expect plenty of new updates in the near future! Let's hope this becomes a success so they can make a film we all wanted since the release of DB Evolution sometime in the future! Thoughts? Would you like them to eventually create a full length movie or make a type of Web series (like Mortal Kombat Legacy)?

Dragonball Z: Saiyan Saga is an extended fan trailer being produced by K&K Productions.

We are huge DBZ fans and I’m sure like many of you, we were very disappointed by Hollywood’s attempt at creating a live action movie. So in May we are set to shoot an extended live action trailer, created for the fans by the fans.

We want to make a high end DBZ fan film that has all your favourite moments from the Saiyan Saga packed in. We have assembled a great cast, all of whom are trained martial artists, so we can deliver on those great action sequences you've come to expect from DBZ. We also have a great location, access to green screen and we will be doing some wire work. So the end result will be a high action, real and gritty depiction of the DBZ universe.

You can see the current cast listing and filming locations here at the official website. And if you're curious about the Saiyan saga trailer they are making, it will be based off of this animated trailer they have created.

And in case you missed the previous video updates, you can view them below!

[frick]ing awesome- first.
laughterman26 - 4/28/2012, 3:14 PM
my only concern is the costumes, and i hope they change the accent with goku.
CronoA7X - 4/28/2012, 3:16 PM
Can't wait! Even with the budget they have this "trailer" will be far better than Evolution.
CronoA7X - 4/28/2012, 3:17 PM
Yeah I also hope they change their accents when playing the roles.
JDUKE25 - 4/28/2012, 3:20 PM
I'm really looking forward to this. Like i said in the other article, this looks to have a lot of potential.
JDUKE25 - 4/28/2012, 3:29 PM
I hope the costumes actually look like they do in the show. Hated Goku's costume in Dragonball Evolution.
CronoA7X - 4/28/2012, 3:46 PM
I really like how the actors know their characters this well.
MrSuperheromoviefan - 4/28/2012, 4:02 PM

best anime ever
i can't wait

Total awesomeness. I'm so glad these guys have such a passion to drive this trailer beyond its capabilities. The heart behind this is already worthy of attention, but the work behind it will, hopefully, make this legendary.
Bandrews1 - 4/28/2012, 6:45 PM
I can't wait to see how this turns out. If its good enough, hopefully we can get a reboot of DBE and someone if not these guys can deliver us a real straight up DBZ movie.

I'm really excited for this. Do you happen to know why they changed Tien? I think I preferred the other guy he seemed to fit the hardness I associate with Tien rather then this guy who I just can't see as Tien.
Canon108 - 4/28/2012, 9:37 PM
Umm, since when are Goku and Gohan Asian, lol...seriously, Goku, Vegetta, Napa, Raditz, and Bulma...they're all Caucasian. Tien, Roshi, Krillin and Yajoribi are Asian.
MatchesMalone1989 - 4/28/2012, 10:11 PM

Your are right about the saiyan. I mean saiyin in Japanese means white man. don't know about Bulma though. But yea people tend to forget that. Saiyans are a metaphor for how strong the white race is. Saiyans were known as a warrior race taking over planets and destroying worlds. Europeans literally took over most of the world. Anyway Canon you are correct and people need to start waking up. Saiyans are not ASAIN.
McGinnis - 4/28/2012, 11:26 PM
From what I know that isn't entirely correct because The name is a Japanese anagram of yasai (野菜), which is Japanese for vegetable, followed by the suffix jin (人 or じん) which is a Japanese suffix for person. Saiyajin may also be a play on Yajin, the Japanese word for wildman. Essentially, "Saiyan" is a more direct English translation of the word. In the Japanese, "Saiyan" is pronounced "Sigh-ya-jin", while in the English dubs, it is pronounced "Say-an". Also yes I did just copy&paste this from Dragon Ball Wiki.

Jeeeeesus! He's uglier then the last guy
McGinnis - 4/29/2012, 12:54 PM
Bardock is actually the burdock herb, Broly is Broccoli and Nappa is a pun on Chinese cabbage.
CronoA7X - 4/29/2012, 2:37 PM
The argument saying that Goku isn't Asian, he is an alien also means he isn't white either. I find it funny that a lot of people got pissed that Goku was a white guy in Db Evolution, but now that an Asian actor is playing him in this fan film everyone is pissed that he's Asian now xD As long as he portrays the character decently, I really don't care what race he is.
MatchesMalone1989 - 4/29/2012, 2:55 PM
Thanks for he clear up mcginnis.

I swear I hear gaijin when the say it in japanese. But you cleared it up. I still don't see them as asian. Not with Blonde Hair and green eyes.
MatchesMalone1989 - 4/29/2012, 2:57 PM
@ Crono

I wasn't pissed that he was white. I just thought the look they gave him and putting Goku in high school was a real stupid move.
BIGBMH - 5/14/2012, 10:17 AM
These people are clearly passionate about bringing this to life. It's a shame more people like them weren't working on the big budget movie.
laughterman26 - 5/23/2012, 12:15 AM
The only reason why they didnt like the movie were for the following reasons, people beleive that because a man of asian decent created goku, that he should be asian, when in fact you cant tell the difference due to the fact they have weird eyes [not hating just pointing it out]so there fore we do not know the race of any characters in the movie.

But living in the world we live in today we try to keep it balanced out. plus perfect actor- john foo, hes of both asian and anglosaxon decent therefore no bitching from either race and hes trained in martial arts so it would be a no brainer.
laughterman26 - 5/23/2012, 12:18 AM
and the only reason why dragonball evolution was acceptable was because she had acceptable sized breasts shame they didnt go with the original manga, then we would of seen her naked FTW
