When did the world version of the Majin Buu Saga begin?

It is my understanding that the International version of this story arc came first. When exactly did it begin airing, and which countries were the first to get it?

The Korean dub was the first international version, and it came back around May/June-ish 2014.

Thank you.

Also, would I be correct in assuming that the most recent movie was produced after the completion of the refurbished Buu Saga?

I think the Buu arc (the international version) has been in completion for quite a while. Probably even before 2014 began. They of course revisited it to recut some episodes and to animate a new opening and 5 new endings for the Japanese cut.

The Majin Buu Saga of Dragon Ball Kai was completed before Battle of Gods as far as I'm aware. So 2013.

When I attended the taping of Hoko x Tate, I heard that they're adding sound effects to the episode on which Gohan shoots Kamehameha at the ball that Buu is sealed in. It was March 2013, so there's no way Buu Kai was finished before BoG's release.

And that was the 25th episode of The Final Chapters, so they weren't even halfway done.

My bad. I got mixed up. Toei said they "were working on Kai before they started Battle of Gods".

Kei's statement fits the timeline of Kai's production, since it's shortly after Majin Boo's release that Battle of Gods tracks start being used in the international, original version.
So the fact that they were working on Boo's release in March 2013 goes with the fact that shortly after, they had BOG tracks to add to their assets while working on the rest of the show.
