The directors of Ms Marvel have revealed the influence of the Dragon Ball Z anime on the season finale of the Disney Plus series.
The first season of mrs marvel It is already available in its entirety on the streaming platform Disney Plus. For now, they have not confirmed the second but at least we know that the character of Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) will be in the movie the marvels and share screen with Carol DanversBrie Larson. Now, those responsible for the program have revealed the influences of Dragon Ball Zthe legendary anime of Akira Toriyama.
In an interview with CBthe directors and producers of Ms Marvel, bilall fallah Y Adil El Arbirevealed that part of the fighting style of kamala khan was inspired by Dragon Ball Z.
“With our VFX artist Nordin Rahhali, we were exploring what we could do with this power and have that “widen” moment. That was an image that is really manga, almost Dragon Ball Z-influenced. All these cool things that, yeah, we explored. And I think when we were doing it, we felt like there was so much more we could do. And I think we’ve just touched the tip of the iceberg.”
Edgar Wright’s work also influenced the ending.
“It was important that the last episode was a climax.” Fallah said in another interview. “It has to go ‘boom, boom, boom’ to a heart-pounding climax at the end. That was really our intention, to make it fast-paced, but at the same time, really have those emotional moments. So finding that balance was tricky, but I think we managed to get there and still have the great action, still have those emotional moments with the mother and father, which were, to me, very special scenes that really move you. And then you have the biggest moment where she’s really being Ms Marvel. That contrast, it was hard to find, but I think we did it.”
“We also wanted to put animation on it, because in the pilot that was something very, very important to us. That fantasy sequence and all that. We still wanted to have a version of that in the finale, so we came up with that Home Alone sequence, where she would explain it on the whiteboard and all that. You really see that flavor, that’s obviously also inspired by Edgar Wright. That’s how we managed, after all, to maintain that kind of identity of the show and what we tried to do in the pilot.”
