TeamFourStar, the group behind the widely popular dubbed parody of Dragon Ball Z, posted a video earlier today titled, “Where is DragonBall Z Abridged!? – TeamFourStar Update.” Fans have been anxious to know when they can expect the next installment in the parody series, the team announced the show is on official hiatus.
In the video Nick “Lanipator” Landis, co-founder, co-writer and voice of many of the characters in the dub (Krillin, Piccolo, Vegeta, Ect.), stated that the show’s production has been halted for personal reasons. He wasn’t able to elaborate any further for that very reason as well, but told fans that if they’d like to blame anyone that they could (jokingly) blame Grant.
The video goes on to explain that while they aren’t working on DBZ Abridge currently, they still have a full plate. Landis announced for the first time on the channel that TeamFourStar is working alongside Discotek Media and Sound Cadence Studios on an official dub of Hells, a Japanese anime movie released last year. Alongside that, TeamFourStar will still be working on Hellsing Ultimate Abridged and Final Fantasy VII Machinabridged (Don’t tell Grant).
It’s been about two months since TeamFourStar lasted posted a video, DragonBall Z Abridged: Episode 59 – #CellGames. Outside of that, the team has posted a number of other different types of content sporadically throughout the last six months, mostly cross over parodies for the Cell Games. Most of their content has either been posted to their official website or to their new gaming channel TFS gaming.
If that weren’t enough, the team will be launching another channel as well, FourStar Bento. The new channel will feature reviews, editorials, skits, and other parody content.
Lanipitor ended the video on a more somber note, stating that they would be hosting a charity stream for the victims of Hurrican Harvey. The stream will take place August 30th at 4PM CT on the groups Twitch channel twitch.tv/streamfourstar.
