Update 1: The official site list a new article telling fans to get the latest issue of Shonen Jump for a quote from Akira Toriyama. Here is a rough translation of said quote.
It’s rare, or I should say, it’s the first time, that I’ve been deeply involved with the animation from the scriptwriting stage. As it had been a while, there was a lot I’d forgotten, but as expected of the creator of the original work, I was soon able to get back into the tempo of things, at least.
For this film, while leaving the atmosphere of the original intact, we’ve added just a little bit of modern flavor, so I think it will be an enjoyable piece of entertainment, just like old times.
