This movie was originally released in Japan in December 1986 and all the advertising and promotional material was under the tile "Dragon Ball: Doragon bôru", but in fact the opening credits of the film itself featured "Dragon Ball: Doragon bôru - Shenron no densetsu". This official title was first used in product art in the Laser Disc release of 1987.
Whoa, that's a really big bird! And listen to it's tummy growl!
At the end of the closing credits, there is a small scene with Son Gokû flying on Kinton, and a desert landscape turning into a beautiful lake.
Funimation produced three English dubs: two with a Vancouver-based voice cast in 1995 (the initial version of this dub utilized the character names from the previous dub from 1989 (e.g., Goku was Zero, Yamcha was Zedaki, etc.; this was produced as a test, and was very obscure) produced by Intersound for Harmony Gold), and one produced in-house in 2010 with their own local pool of voice actors.
