DRAGON BALL News: ACTORS MARIO CASTAÑEDA AND RENÉ GARCÍA, GOKU AND VEGETA IN DRAGON BALL, RESPECTIVELY, WILL NARRATE THE TOKYO 2020 OLYMPIC GAMES
This is undoubtedly an interesting move on the part of TV Azteca: resorting to popular voice actors to narrate sports. In this case, Mario Castañeda and René García, who play Goku and Vegeta in the Latin dubbing of Dragon Ball.
That was what was recently unveiled in a presentation made by this Mexican television station, and these artists will participate as part of their coverage of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
GOKU AND VEGETA AT THE TOKYO 2020 OLYMPIC GAMES
Azteca Deportes will cover 339 events from 33 different sports disciplines, as part of Los Protagonistas, which is the programming bar focused on these types of activities.
It is managed that the block in which Castañeda and García will participate will be called ‘Los Juegos de Z’, a clear reference to Dragon Ball Z, which is perhaps the most popular anime stage in Mexico and Latin America. As expected, both actors have already spoken about this matter.
That was through their Twitter accounts. Mario Castañeda commented ‘Our way to Tokyo 2020 begins, where we will be the #Protagonists of the best stories of the Olympic Games! Don’t miss the stellar presentation! #ProtagonistasRumboATokyo ’.
As for René García… he said exactly the same thing! It seems that they all agreed to share this message through social networks.
THE NARRATIONS WILL HAVE A ‘TOUCH’ OF DRAGON BALL
In the statement shared by TV Azteca, it can be read ‘for social networks, the official voices of Goku and Vegeta, Mario Castañeda and René García, respectively, will have the funniest newscast of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games’.
So if everything goes according to schedule, these artists behind Dragon Ball will make talking about sports much more enjoyable during this Olympic tournament, which will begin very soon.
When do the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games start? The inauguration at the Olympic Stadium will be on Friday, July 23 at 8:00 p.m. JST, which would be 6:00 a.m. according to central Mexico time.
According to what was planned by the organizers, it will be Sunday August 8 that the events will end. One year later than scheduled, and we’ll see how things turn out. Only now it will have a bit of Dragon Ball ‘flavor’ on the narrative side.
