I made a timeline of what events in the Dragonball Z movie parallelaverse (trademark) might look like. in many ways this timeline mirrors the history of regular maga/anime Dragonball Z universe but in many ways differs. As fans know from scratching our heads over apparent plotholes in the move universe, much of the action is necessarily impossible (i.e. both goku and vegeta being dead against janemba but being aware of buu etc,) and can’t be reconciled with the regular universe. However, I thought, what if all 13 of the films take place in the same movie universe instead of each being confined to one of 13 small DBZ universes? Could I make it all make sense? I think so. Check it out…
theory: all dbz movies take place in same alternate timeline…
no dates, maybe will go back and try to add them later. submit them if you’d like, that’d be cool.
i dont include dragonball movies cuz i havent seen them
