NATPE Spotlight: Toei Animation


MIAMI: On offer from Toei Animation is Dragon Ball Super, which reunites the franchise’s iconic characters and follows the aftermath of Goku’s fierce battle with Majin Buu as he attempts to maintain Earth’s fragile peace.

“Overseen by Dragon Ball’s original creator, Akira Toriyama, Dragon Ball Super draws on its 30-year history to create a bold new universe that is welcoming to fans and endearing to new viewers,” says Daniel Castaneda, the director for Latin American licensing at Toei Animation. Further company highlights include Saint Seiya Soul of Gold and Mazinger Z. “These programs have proven success worldwide and are considered evergreen properties,” he adds.

Castaneda notes that these properties “have all performed extremely well in Latin America,” which is why he’s excited about promoting them at NATPE. “Besides securing important deals with longstanding clients and strengthening our relationships, we are looking forward to meeting new potential clients for emerging platforms.”
