In 2004, Pioneer lost its distribution rights to the first 53/67 episodes of Dragon Ball Z , allowing Funimation to re-dub them with their in-house voice cast and restore the removed content.  This dub's background score was composed by Nathan M. Johnson. Funimation's new uncut dub of these episodes aired on Cartoon Network during the summer of 2005 (in late night , due to the unedited content).    Funimation's later remastered DVDs of the series saw minor changes made to their in-house dub for quality and consistency, mostly after the episode 67 gap, and had the option to play the entire series' dub with both the American and Japanese background music.
Due to character designs, and the presence of Vegeta as a Super Saiyan, who is capable of using the Final Flash technique, and the fact that the highest form that Goku and Vegeta can take on is Super Saiyan, the events of the film seemingly take place during the ten day wait for the Cell Games. For some strange reason, Goku's outfit is the same like in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods and Dragon Ball Super since he has the Go Kanji on his gi. However it is possible that it takes place in an alternate timeline of Age 767 (such as the 1st alternate timeline created by Future Trunks in which the battles with Cell and the Cell Games never occurred) like some of the Dragon Ball Z films according to Xenoverse 2 .
