You can go ahead and make new plans for August 15th, Dragonball fans — James Wong‘s live-action adaptation won’t be hitting screens that weekend.

It won’t be coming to theaters at all this year, in fact — 20th Century Fox has announced that its big-screen version of the Akira Toriyama manga is being pushed back to April 3, 2009.

According to IGN Movies, the studio hasn’t offered an official explanation for the move, but the original release date would have put Dragonball up against Ben Stiller’s Tropic Thunder, as well as the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Dragonball stars Justin Chatwin, James Marsters, Jamie Chung, Emmy Rossum, and Chow Yun-Fat, and follows the adventures of “the heroic Goku, a powerful warrior who protects the Earth from an endless stream of rogues bent on dominating the Universe and controlling the mystical objects from which the film takes its name.”
