You can check out the video above, and honestly, I cannot recommend it enough. This gorgeous teaser is fully animated with some of the best scenes from Dragon Ball Z's first arc. The haunting reel features gorgeous scenery that is animated in full color and texture. And as netizens admit, they would eat up a full Dragon Ball Z adaptation like this should Hollywood invest the time.

To start, this clip begins with a look as Raditz and Goku as they are blown away by Piccolo. This moment marks Goku's death and introduction to the afterlife where he learns more about his full power. As the trailer moves forward, fans are given a look at familiar locations like King Kai's planet and the dragon bridge that leads there.

Finally, the trailer leaves off with the arrival of Vegeta and Nappa. The Saiyan pair are ready to fight, and the Z-Fighters are not ready for their debut. This reel perfectly captures how devastating the Saiyans are in battle, and Wai Kin even remixed the iconic theme song "Cha-La Head-Cha-La" to better fit the somber tone.
