The first details have now been announced about the dub as the cast has been revealed. Fans of the previous Funimation dubs will be relieved to see that most of the cast from Dragon Ball Z are reprising their roles in the latest installment of the franchise. Seán Schemmel is back as Goku, Christopher Sabat is Vegeta, and Krillin will once again be voiced by Sonny Strait -reprising roles they have played for many years.

In this very special episode Rachael, Chris and Dan are joined by director of The Little Prince and Kung Fu Panda, Mark Osborne. Mark talks about the production of The Little Prince, and his personal connection with the source material. We also hear about his earlier career and his favourite recent animated films. We're also treated to a few details on his next project - the animated adaptation of Jeff Smith's comic series Bone.
This year's pack are lead by Disney's Zootopia (11 nominations) and LAIKA's Kubo and The Two Strings (10 nominations). Disney's other release of the year was not too far behind, with seven nominations bagged by Moana. Also faring well was Michael Dudok de Wit and Studio Ghibli's The Red Turtle, scoring 5 nominations. Surprisingly though, Pixar's Finding Dory only got 3 nominations, which is unusually modest by that Studio's standards.

Once upon a time there was a man who lived on the moon. Night after night he saw joy and dancing on Earth so he caught a lift on the tail of a comet to experience life on our little blue planet. This is his story.
Watching Moon Man left me quite conflicted in my opinion of it. When I started out writing this I thought I had an opinion formed but then as I have committed that to "paper" (and the inevitable re-writes) my opinion changed and I began to appreciate it more than I had initially. I'm getting ahead of myself, let's start at the beginning...
I came across Moon Man from seeing the trailer on the "if you looked at this you might like..." part of a popular video-sharing website. The imagery looked pretty so I thought I would give it a go.
