One Piece Film: Red Release Date for Japanese Theaters
Fans are going crazy after the official Twitter account has released a brand new poster of the upcoming film, One Piece Film: Red. It’s the 15th movie of the One Piece franchise that’s getting a theatrical release in Japan. The film was initially announced on November 21st, 2021. Interestingly, it comes with a new story that doesn’t connect with the other films in the franchise. It will also introduce you to several new characters, including Uta, Red-haired Shanks’ daughter.
One Piece Film: Red will basically focus on Uta, who is considered to be the world’s most famous diva. The story starts on an island where Uta has her first live concert. That’s when she also reveals her true identity, which means she tells the audience that she’s the daughter of Red-Haired Shanks.
Furthermore, the film sees Elchiro Oda as the General Producer and Goro Taniguchi as the director. This will be the second One Piece film to see Taniguchi taking on directorial responsibilities. Apart from that, Taniguchi is the one who was behind the animation of the fan-favourite Luffy.
