Film director Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Man of Steel, Justice League) said in an interview on Saturday that he would “consider” making a film based on the Dragon Ball Z anime series if the circumstances were right. He also expressed interest in doing “remake” or “live-action” work based on anime properties and professed to watch a lot of anime with his son.
The interview was conducted by popular YouTuber Tyrone Magnus. He is a passionate Dragon Ball fan who played Tyrone Magnus in the fan-created Dragon Ball Absalon series.
The Dragon Ball series inspired a live-action film, titled Dragonball: Evolution, which opened in the United States in April 2009.
“I would consider that. I mean, if it came right.” Snyder began, “But definitely, I would do an anime remake or live-action. That would be fun because I love animation, and I watch a ton of anime with my kid who’s too young to watch it but we watch anyway (laughs).”
The anime is a hand-drawn and computer animation that originates from Japan. In Japan and Japanese, anime (a term derived from the English word animation) describes all animated works, regardless of their style or origin. However, outside of Japan and in English, anime is colloquial for Japanese animation and refers specifically to animation produced in Japan. Animation produced outside of Japan in a style similar to Japanese animation is known as anime-influenced animation.
