Toei Animation, Funimation (a Sony Pictures Television company) and Bluefin (a Bandai Namco group company) have revealed the complete details for the launch of the 2019 Dragon Ball World Adventure at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, including a history-making Guinness World Records attempt on Opening Day of the tour.
Co-sponsored and presented jointly by Bandai and Toei Animation, the 2019 Dragon Ball World Adventure opens on Wednesday, July 17 at an expansive installation on the Marriott Marina Terrace at the Marriott Marquis San Diego. The tour will continue throughout Comic-Con from July 18-21 and will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The tour will kick off with a special Guinness World Records attempt to become the largest gathering of people simultaneously performing the iconic Kamehameha super energy attack move — fans will gather for the attempt on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. on the Marriott Marina Terrace. The first 1,000 participants to arrive will receive a free Dragon Ball Scouter accessory to wear during the Guinness World Records attempt. The Kamehameha super energy attack move will be led by actor Sean Schemmel, the English voice of Dragon Ball character Goku. Guinness World Records will be onsite to supervise and validate the record attempt.
Attendees can dive into the world of Dragon Ball with an expansive collection of multi-faceted interactive installations. Delightful interactive kiosks will feature the latest Dragon Ball video game titles from Bandai Namco Entertainment, including Dragon Ball ZKakarot, Dragon Ball Z Fighter, Dragon Ball Legends and Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle.
