Yeah, I wouldn't worry about their ability to dub a movie that's farther ahead story wise. They jump light-years ahead in story for the One Piece movies.Baggie_Saiyan wrote:So new DBS movie. I know FUNi have dubbed Fairy Tail new content while behind on the main anime and same for One Piece I believe so them dubbing the new movie next year (or hopefully December) doesn't seem out the question to be honest.
I'd hate it if they were restricted on dubbing the movie while the dub catches up. But given OP is a Toei property I feel less worried about that.
I'm more concerned about the time frame in which we get it. Resurrection F dubbed came out 4 months after the sub, and that was considered to be well coordinated on both Toei and Funimation's parts. Then came Super, and we all know how long it took to settle the dubbing rights for that. Which didn't make any sense at the time (does it even now actually?) because of how quickly Funimation was allowed to do Res-F.
So I'm slightly concerned that Toei will find some reason to forestall the inevitable Funi release, and potentially keep us from an English version for far longer than 4 months. The good news is that Funi doesn't have to debate about finding a kids channel to air the movie, unlike with Super, so there technically shouldn't be any snags, but you never know with Toei.
Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.
