Coincidence Or Not -- Toei To Release Dragon Quest: Your Story Summer Movie On The Year Of Ryusoulger
Coincidence or not? Ryusoulger for me is more Dragon Quest than dinosaur (and I guess Toei just decided to go with dinosaurs because of last year's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) with all the RPG elements, mythical monsters based on Western mythos (Zyuranger had plenty of them) and now Toei Animation is going to make the Dragon Quest: Your Story movie. Just a note -- the two Dragon Quest Anime series (Dai and Abel) were by Studio Pierrot and Studio Coment and NOT by Toei Ltd.
Is is really planned or just a coincidence that Toei has an upcoming movie based on Dragon Quest V? I remembered the time when Ryusoulger was leaked to be dragon-based but Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom screened on July 13, 2018 in Japan -- did that catch Toei off-guard? They planned a dragon knight type Super Sentai but ended up releasing dinosaurs? So when did they start to shift to dinosaurs yet still keep the RPG vibes intact? I've watched every week for Ryusoulger and I'm reminded more of Dragon Quest (and to an extent Saban's Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog) than Kyoryuger or even the heavily RPG-based Zyuranger. This made me even ask the question on how many Dragon Quest games have you played?
So the schedule for the Ryusoulger and Kamen Rider Zi-O summer films will be on July 26, 2019 which will be during the Reiwa era. So how does it feel to have a Ryusoulger summer movie on July 26, 2019 to be followed up by a Dragon Quest movie seven days later? What do you think?
