OK, so it starts out before BotG, but moves past it and RF.  Though, it says they're gonna cover the movies in the show, too?  Does that mean they're gonna re-cut the movies into episodes?  That sounds super cheap.

As far as we're aware, this is 100% new footage. There literally isn't enough footage in these movies to make arcs out of them. Those movies couldn't even make five episodes each. Plus, it would probably affect DVD sales if they did that. So, I imagine these will be expanded retellings with new information and scenes, and intended to fit together and with the new material.

The plot has been revealed......

Oh, so the new series does take place before BoG. That explains why Goten and Trunks still look the same. I still don't get why they don't appear older in BoG since it takes place 2 years after the defeat of Kid Buu IIRC.

I know it's minor but I'd really like to see Vegeta wear his Buu saga attire again. I'd also like to see Goku and Vegeta fuse in the new series, it's been forever since they fused. Knowing Toriyama I bet he's going to make Gohan weak again and be defeated easily.

To adress some misconceptions. Vegeta didn't wear the armor in Buu arc, because he was to attend the Martial Arts Tournament where protectors are prohibited.
Same reason Gohan ditching the Saiyaman helmet and donning goggles and headband.

Vegeta wears Saiyan armor in same manner the knights did in medieval ages, it's simply the formal Saiyan wear (Said that in 2008 Special).

Kaio's planet was restored with help of Namekian Dragon Balls in one-shot funny comic done by Toyotaro. Kai complained that the planet isn't bigger as it is this small thanks to Beerus.

Dragon Ball Super is retelling of both movies into an weekly show format + brand new arc in Universe 6.
It is not a recut, as there will be differences and same things will happen in different way. Mostly in BOG arc, there is the second God of destruction, Champa.

If you have any question regarding Dragon Ball, place them on me or you can visit Kanzenshuu page :)
