Default DBZ Refreshed from April 5 2009

I might be the only one who finds himself giddy upon reading this, but I don't care! It must be shared!

Dragonball is getting a re-airing with a "refreshed" version of the show in Japan from Sunday April 5th 2009, to celebrate 20 years of Dragonball Z. More details are below and come from www.daizex.com/:
  • The DBZ TV series is receiving an extensive "refresh" for Japanese television airing
  • This is a celebration of the 20th anniversary of DBZ
  • While based on the original animation production, it is being updated with new technology
  • This includes extending the frames for formatting on an HD 16:9 display (note: not cropping the image)
  • The original Japanese cast is re-grouping to re-voice the show (where available, and unfortunately not including those that have passed on, such as Hirotaka Suzuoki [Tenshinhan])
  • Sound effects are being updated
  • Unlike the general show, the OPs and EDs are being completely redone
  • While not in the above announcement, other reports are noting that the number of episodes is being reduced from 291 to approximately 100
  • This begins 05 April 2009 @ 9 am

I cant wait to see how these episodes turn out, sure it isnt a new DBZ show but it'll be more than enough for me!

Most probably, but it'd be a Japanese region DVD, as I doubt Funimation would re-dub it, since they have just done so...unless they slap the new intro/outro's on the episodes.

I wonder if it means re-edited episodes (as in merging 3 into one) or if they will just do particular episodes (skip whole episodes) or if it will just be certain full episodes redone?

Love to see an abridged series, 10 episodes for Vegeta Saga, 25 for Namek/Frieza 35 for Trunks through to Cell Games 5 for World Tournament to Babidi and 25 for Buu.

This is very good news. The manga pacing just didn't tranlate well into animated form. Many of the DBZ episodes were just waaaaaay too long.

I'm confused about what they are doing.

Are they going to remake the sound track (inc voices) and edit the original animation?
That what it sounds like to me anyway

The animation will remain the same (they will touch it up here and there, like they did for the Dragon Box sets), but due to better technology it'll look better.
New animated intro and end credits, and a new sound track.

I can't tell you all how much more I am looking forward to seeing what they do regarding cuts/edits to the anime than I am to the live action movie.

I refuse to watch the live action movie. Looks too scary.
