One Piece Film: Red New Trailer
The trailer starts with a sneak peek of the upcoming concert of world-famous singer Uta. Although we knew she was Shanks’ daughter, what’s surprising is that Luffy knew it already. Moreover, Luffy is the one to reveal this in the concert. The rest of the trailer shows off some big names like the Gorosei, Admirals, Big Mom Pirates, and more. Also, we see Shanks seemingly leave behind Uta on a burning island which Luffy says was to protect her.
While waiting for this movie, why not check out some anime from this super-packed season? The second season of Rent A Girlfriend is out, and its just as weird and wacky as the previous one, if not more. If you’re interested, check out our guide on Rent A Girlfriend Season 2 Episode 4 right here.
How is One Piece Film: Red?
The film takes place on the mystical musical island of “Elegia.” On it, everyone has gathered for the first concert of Uta, a singer with an otherworldly voice. But that’s not all; she is also the daughter of the fan-favorite character “Akagami” Shanks.
Yonko Shanks has been one of the most influential characters on One Piece, who we barely know anything about. So it’s insane to think that his daughter will be revealed in a movie that is usually not canon. So fans should keep an eye on it as this might be the first canon One Piece film ever.
One Piece Film: Red Release Date
The film will be released in Japanese theatres on August 6, 2022. Moreover, the film will be released globally in the fall of 2022 after the August release by Crunchyroll.
