Dragonball Evolution is a 2009 American science fantasy action film directed by James Wong, produced by Stephen Chow, and written by Ben Ramsey.
Two thousand years ago, the demon Lord Piccolo came to Earth, wreaking havoc along with his minion Ōzaru the Great Ape. Seven mystics created a powerful enchantment called the Mafuba and used it to seal Piccolo away; however, he breaks free in the present day, and with his ninja henchwoman Mai, begins to search for the seven Dragonballs – each one marked with stars numbering between one and seven – killing anyone in his path. He finds the first Dragonball in the possession of a peasant woman named Seki in an impoverished village. She relinquishes the Dragonball to save her daughter’s life, and Mai seemingly kills her.
