Nozawa has provided the voice of Goku since 1986, and after 35 years, she's still doing it for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. Over the decades, Nozawa has shared her vocal talents for various anime shows and video games, and while the English version of Goku has had many voice actors step into the role, the 84-year-old voice actress has voiced Goku in all the Japanese versions, including Dragon Ball Super and Dragon Ball Heroes, and she's showing no signs of stopping anytime soon.

Here's what Nozawa said about Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero (via Comicbook):

"I'm sure you're all bursting with excitement waiting for the Dragon Ball movie! I'm certain that Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero will more than live up to everyone's expectations! The Super Hero subtitle is pretty cool, right? I love how simple and straight-to-the-point it is! The new characters designed by Toriyama don't quite look like anyone we've seen before. They've got a great sense of style! Looking slick wearing boots, they're definitely a unique addition to Dragon Ball, and I can't wait to see what they can do! It's one of those amazing movies where, after you finish watching it, you and your friends and family can all talk about the details and about what parts you liked best! I can't wait to hear all of your impressions of the movie!"

In addition, Nozawa also praised series creator's Akira Toriyama's vision for the series, teasing that there are many surprising scenes in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero for the fans.
