Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope Live-Action Fan Pilot Recreates The History of Trunks

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The Robot Underdog team released the pilot for their Dragon Ball Z web series Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope on Tuesday. The live-action series is based on the Dragon Ball Z Special 2: The History of Trunks and chronicles Trunks and Gohan's battles against Andriod 17 and 18 after Goku and the other Z Fighters are killed.

The pilot is directed by Donnie McMillin and written by Derek Padula (Dragon Ball Culture, The Dao of Dragon Ball). The video stars Tyler Tackett as Android 17, Amy Johnston as Android 18, Anton Bex as Gohan, Jack Wald as Trunks, Ruthann Thompson as Bulma, and Tim Neff as the Voice of Future Trunks.

The crew's YouTube channel also hosts behind-the-scenes videos on the making of Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope.

The pilot is one of many fan film projects to gain recognition lately. The Street Fighter: Legacy short fan-film eventually led to director Joey Ansah getting the official sign-off from CAPCOM to create the live-action Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist series. Epic Rival recently finished its Naruto Shippūden: Dance of War fan film. The group already released Naruto Shippūden: Dreamers Fight.
