Published by 27 February 2015, 1:40 AM EST,

With 50 days remaining until the film’s debut, the official blog to promote Dragon Ball Z: Revival of “F” has updated with word from another voice actor, Toshio “Piccolo” Furukawa:





Hey! Bulma here!
Just 50 days left until the movie debuts!
Today we’ve got a comment from the voice of Piccolo, Toshio Furukawa!

Dragon Ball has this image as a never-ending series: they continue to go on making all kinds of TV shows, movies, games, and other content, right up to this latest film. A series this enduring is pretty rare, and we voice artists are incredibly happy to be involved in such a crowning achievement in anime history.

The scenario for this movie is one I think only original author Toriyama-sensei could have come up with: centered on the charismatic villain Freeza, with lots of different characters getting a chance to show their stuff.

Dragon Ball features many charismatic villains, but out of all of them Freeza was most memorable. He’s the ultimate bad guy. So with him coming back to life, things are definitely going to heat up.

This time Piccolo has a big role too, and I gave the intense fight scenes all I had. It’s the Revival of “F”urukawa (laughs).

The highlights this time are definitely the battle scenes, with “battle” written in wild and crazy letters.

Dragon Ball is an endless series, and I hope all Dragon Ball fans will go on loving it for a long, long time to come. In any case, please enjoy seeing this latest film at the theaters!


The story for Revival of “F”, opening nationwide in Japan 18 April 2015 in 2D and IMAX 3D, is being crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama, who stated he is writing it, “…as though it were a continuation of the manga when it was in serialization,” and that while it will, “…of course be a continuation of the previous Battle of Gods,” he has also, “…deliberately increased the amount of action scenes by a good deal.” Tadayoshi Yamamuro, who worked for many years as character designer and animation supervisor on the Dragon Ball franchise, will serve as the film’s director and animation supervisor. Norihito Sumitomo will return from Battle of Gods and the Majin Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai for musical composition duties. Momoiro Clover Z will contribute a song alongside Maximum the Hormone, whose “F” will be used as a “battle song” during the film. Revival of “F” is set to bring back Freeza and will also include two new characters (Sorbet and Tagoma), feature Beerus and Whis again from Battle of Gods, and much more.

We will continue to keep tabs on this blog and translate whatever news it reveals, so stay tuned…!
