GameInformer Interview With Christopher Sabat

Post by Lunaar » Fri Nov 03, 2017 11:29 am

If you have just under a half hour's worth of time, it's a lot of fun to listen to Sabat gush about the series.

Overall, some cool stories and tidbits from Sabat that may or may not have been in panels or past interviews, but here's some stuff that caught my attention:
  • Characters in FighterZ are self-aware about the player controlling their actions.
  • Sean Schemmel is focused on keeping in-line with the idea of Son Goku acting through selfish desires (and leaving the old school "hero dub" Goku behind)
  • In the '99 era, they only had the Spanish dub to go off of for script references. Very little material was given from "them" (one could assume that they were working with Toei on reference material).
  • They had almost NOTHING to go on for Sean's performance as Goku Black in Xenoverse 2. That performance will most likely not match his upcoming work in Super's (Thank Kami).
  • Sabat promises to "blows your mind" with a revelation about Vegeta's "BADMAN" outfit and it's origin.
  • "It's cheese," was given in one read. Nice.
  • Sabat is particularly excited about Zen'oh.
Give it a listen! While I lean very heavily on the Japanese version when it comes to Dragon Ball, I am a fan of FUNimation's current (2010-onward) efforts and have mad respect for Sabat's work.

Any information on when he plans on revealing it?
And what does the cheese line refer to?
That's all I wanna know.

He describes the revelation in the video, I just didn't want to give it away. It's... funny to think about, I'll leave it at that. The "it's cheese," line is from Vegeta, when Beerus asks what the gooey stuff is on pizza. Early Super episodes.

I mean, it's not so much a revelation about the BADMAN shirt as it is Sabat's headcanon regarding it. Still interesting, though.

Can you reveal it here or at least give me the minute mark, as I don't want to listen to the entire thing?

Oh, right, thanks!

It's 10 minutes and 30 seconds in.
[spoiler]Basically Sabat thinks the pink BADMAN shirt and yellow pants that Bulma gave to Vegeta originally belonged to Yamcha.[/spoiler]

Oh, thanks. That is a good theory, but it's just a theory. I thought he was revealing an actual fact.

I say "revelation" very loosely, because of how much he hypes it. I kinda rolled my eyes when he mentioned it.

He said they're staying true to the Japanese and he's excited cuz he likes the character of Zen-Oh and thinks he's great.

Why would Sabat's made up theory blow my mind? lol


Personally I always thought it belonged to Dr. Brief's in his younger days. :twisted:

So being excited about a character = he's voicing Zeno? I guess he's voicing Goku Black and Zamasu too then. :roll:

You heard it here, first! Confirmed: Christopher Sabat will be voicing Goku's evil brother, Supreme Kai's evil brother and Blue Stewie™.

He's joking.
