I mean, Z got the Dragon Box treatment first back in the day, so you never know.
I mean, Masenko is right:

I would normally have more faith in Toei, but neither DB nor GT have really gotten any love since BoG came out IMO. With the exception of, say, Arale showing up in Super, there's really been no attempt to recognize these two pieces of Dragon Ball media. Now granted, at the time of DB's 30th anniversary we were in the middle of DBS production so there wasn't much room there, but still I am somewhat concerned about it.

That's a really insane mindset for a company or companies to have, to favor one particular brand of a franchise over the others and disregard the rest as though they're irrelevant.
Problem is, it's marketable. Because the classic anime was broken up into two distinct halves (rather than arc-by-arc like Sailor Moon), the second half being more popular, especially overseas, has meant that the original Dragon Ball anime, with all its differences in tone and story direction, is now considered obscure and hard to market to existing DBZ and DBS fans. If it were all one show like it should have been, or had Sailor Moon-style arc names, we wouldn't have this situation at all.
