As our colleague Antonio anticipated live and direct on Twitter, David Jenner is the new voice of Naruto in Spain. If his name is not familiar to you, surely you will recognize him immediately: it is the voice of Samsagaz Gamyi in The Lord of the Rings, the Winter Soldier in Marvel, TJ in La Banda del Patio or even the ghost Cásper.
In anime he has also voiced Rengoku in Kimetsu no Yaiba (Demon Slayer), Touta Matsuda in Death Note and Bakugo in Boku no Hero Academia. He is the brother of Michelle Jenner and the son of Miguel Ángel Jenner, also very popular voice actors in Spain.
Jenner will replace Javier Balas, former voice actor in the Spanish version of Naruto. The original dubbing of the first 111 episodes Shippuden will be left in this new edition, as an extra.
Apparently, the producers of Naruto Shippuden were the ones who recommended to Selecta Vision the new translation of the series in this deluxe edition, which will be released this fall, although the exact date is unknown.
Stay tuned soon for our complete coverage of all the news from Selecta Visión. What do you think of the new voice of Naruto in Spain?
