Dragon Ball: The Magic Begins (七龍球 神龍的傳説 Qi long qiu Shen long de chuan shuo) is a 1991 Taiwanese movie about the Dragon Ball franchise, with a few differences.

Okay, make that a lot of differences. The movie actually is something of an adaptation of the Dragon Ball franchise, but using different names for the characters, but otherwise is at least somewhat faithful, even if the story is more based around one of the movies (Curse of the Blood Rubies).

An Ultimate Edition version was released in 2007, with remastered picture and sound, as well as new computer effects.

Most certainly NOT to be confused with Dragon Ball Evolution.

Compare with Dragon Ball Fight for Victory Son Goku, a more faithful Korean live action adaptation.

Tropes used in Dragon Ball: The Magic Begins include:

  • Conspicuous CG: In the Ultimate Edition version.
  • Expy: Most of the characters in the film, heck, Goku even becomes the character of legend he was based upon, Sun Wukong!
  • So Bad It's Good
