Earlier this month we discovered that Bandai Namco was doing something with Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama’s SAND LAND manga, which was originally published in Weekly Shonen Jump between May and August of 2020. Since then we’ve learned the project is a “screen adaptation,” the medium and format of which have yet to be revealed.
What we do know is that SAND LAND is coming to the screen sometime in 2023, and will have animation produced by Sunrise, Kamikaze Douga and Anima. There’s also a teaser trailer:
VIZ Media published SAND LAND in English and gave this description for it:
In the far future, war has destroyed the entire Earth, leaving only a barren wasteland where the supply of water is controlled by the greedy king. In search of a long-lost lake, Sheriff Rao asked the king of the demons for help…and got the king’s son, Beelzebub, and his assistant, Thief. Together the unlikely trio sets off across the desert, facing dragons, bandits and the deadliest foe of all… the King’s army itself! It’s travel adventure and tank action in this new story from Akira Toriyama, the creator of Dragon Ball Z!
Stay tuned for more details on this one.
