Ocean Studios (the other English dub of DragonBall) is popping up in numerous reports and rumors around the internet that they will be making their own version of DragonBall Kai. The first reports come from the possible voice actors for Ocean, one being the voice actor for Freeza (Lee Tockar). Read his tweets and other quotes below.
“Hi all. Gallery done-Invites pending. Very excited. I got the part of Frieza on Dragonball Kai. My inner nerd is all a-twitter on twitter.”
“Is it true you will be voicing Frieza in DragonBall Kai?”
“I am indeed. They have been very close lipped about the cast at this point for some reason, but as I have already signed the contracts and voiced several episodes and my union knows and I have not signed any non-disclosure agreements, I think it is safe to tell a few people. So yes I am very proud to say I am the new voice of Freeza in DBK.”
The next piece of information actually comes from the ending credits from the broadcast version of DragonBall Z Kai. You can clearly see Ocean Productions listed there, check it out below.
Ocean has yet to confirm any statements that they are working on DragonBall Kai, but at this point it is almost safe to say that they are and everyone will be seeing it shortly. So, would you like a lot of the old cast to return? Discuss.
