LOS ANGELES, CA – November 30, 2016. As Toei Animation Inc. and Funimation® Entertainment ready for the highly-anticipated, dub launch of “Dragon Ball Super”, the acclaimed original English cast is back to embark on the newest adventure in the Dragon Ball saga. Long-time Dragon Ball franchise voice actors reprising their previous roles for Funimation’s English dub production include Seán Schemmel (Goku), Christopher R. Sabat (Vegeta), Jason Douglas (Beerus), Ian Sinclair (Whis) and Sonny Strait (Krillin) – all of whom starred in last year’s hit movie “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’,”which became the 9th highest grossing anime film of all time in U.S.
Reuniting the franchise’s iconic characters, “Dragon Ball Super” follows the aftermath of Goku’s fierce battle with Majin Buu, as he attempts to maintain Earth’s fragile peace. Overseen by Dragon Ball’s original creator, Akira Toriyama, Dragon Ball Super draws on its thirty-year history to create a bold, new universe that is welcoming to fans and endearing to new viewers.
“We are excited to welcome back our many friends and talented newcomers in making ‘Dragon Ball Super’ as special as it can be for fans across the U.S.” said Masayuki Endo, President of Toei Animation Inc. “Funimation has been a fantastic partner in shaping the series for English audiences.”
“We’re thrilled to reunite the original voice cast for our U.S. English dub production of ‘Dragon Ball Super’ with Toei,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of Funimation. “Dragon Ball fans – new and old – can look forward to the same great dub experience with ‘Dragon Ball Super’ that they have been enjoying for the past 18 years.”
