There was a 2014 manga comic "Dragon Ball Minus", that further explained the events in this feature. It features Goku's mother Gine (named after "negi", the Japanese term for "spring onion") and has her and Bardock dispatch Goku into space before Frieza destroys their world. See more »

Planet Vegeta. Many years ago, a small child was born. Uninherited and unattended by it's father and mother, the baby cried out, making it's only plea to the universe. The Saiyans were people of war, and like all Saiyan babies, the child was destined to fight!

The best of the first 5
One of the best Dragon Ball Z movies.
Most like canon though it is not. Interesting story about Goku's father, full of interesting plot twists. It describes how it all began.
The first four movies (Z series) I didn't like, but this one is great and I recommend it to everyone.
Definitely the best of the first 5 DBZ movies.
