RobotUnderdog is the team responsible for the Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope live action project. This live action mini-web-series will be based on, and corresponding with the events of the “alternate timeline”, which became popular through the TV special Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks (You can see the projects official trailer here). As expected, there is a huge fan-demand for how a top-tier live action Super Saiyan transformation would turn out. Lucky for us, we were granted the opportunity of seeing RobotUnderdog’s take on this iconic transformation.
After seeing this transformation in action, we took away a few things. For one, it’s extremely obvious what RobotUnderdog is going for, which is to feel “real” and “organic.” For instance, if this could ACTUALLY happen in real life, what would it look like, and how can we make this believable? Well, the actual transformation itself looked extremely natural, which made it really great. With that said, there wasn’t any over-the-top CG. What really caught our eyes was the fact that no wig necessary on Gohan, so it really is a perfect representation of how his hair should look. In addition, although we only saw a rough cut, the music is especially fitting, and completely composed and written by Abraham Castañeda. That said, overall we were very impressed with how this is turning out.
