Fan films are more popular than ever. The latest of these that is sweeping the fanboy community is a fan film titled Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope. The result is the Dragon Ball Z movie that is not only the type of adaptation that most fans have been salavating over for years, but something that actually works as a story. Here is the film, which was independently made as a non profit venture produced by RobotUnderdog.


In Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope, Gohan and Trunks fight against the unstoppable Androids #17 and #18 and try to save as many human lives as possible. The young Trunks must grow up quickly and learn from his mentor, Gohan; but with battles to fight on both the outside and inside, how long can they endure, and where will they find a light of hope?

After a successful crowd funding campaign, the film went silent while the visual effects were being completed, but the film is a true success story of a fan who just wanted to tell a Dragon Ball Z story the right way, with good production values (which are quite impressive for an independent production).


The show is currently gearing up for a second episode, which you can donate to by clicking the link above. Stay tuned for more info on the second episode as we gain more information in the future. In the meanwhile, Check out some behind the scenes videos from the making of the film:
