Dragon Ball Super: Goku and Piccolo Actors Hype Up Jump Festa Panel


The stars behind Goku and Piccolo are hyping up the upcoming Jump Festa panel for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero! Fans have been waiting for the anime to make its comeback following the release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly in 2018, but Toei Animation surprised fans earlier this year when it was announced that the next feature film release in the franchise was now being developed for a scheduled release in Japan next year. There’s still much that Toei Animation has yet to reveal about the upcoming Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, and that’s what makes its upcoming panel at Jump Festa 2022 so exciting.

The stars behind the upcoming movie are furthering that excitement as well. Goku voice actor Masako Nozawa and Piccolo actor Toshio Furukawa shared new statements about the upcoming Jump Festa panel (as spotted and translated by @DBSChronicles on Twitter), and it’s clear that they are hyped for fans to see more about the upcoming movie. For example, Nozawa’s statement reads as such, “I’m super excited to share some new information about the new movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero at the Jump Festa. Don’t miss it!”

As for Furukawa, the actor released the following statement about the upcoming Jump Festa panel, “Sorry to keep you waiting! As I was recording the lines, I had a feeling that something great was about to happen. I am grateful for the privilege of presenting new information from the Super Stage.” Piccolo’s being touted for a much bigger role in the upcoming film than before, so it seems that the actual star behind the character is just as excited for fans to see Piccolo get more attention this time around.

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has yet to nail down a specific release date just yet, but it is currently scheduled for a release next year in Japan. International release plans have yet to be made known as of this writing either, but this upcoming panel could give fans the most information yet as we have only seen brief teasers and character designs for the new movie so far. But what do you think?
