One Piece Film Red


One Piece Film Red is executive produced by One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda, with Goro Taniguchi (One Piece Defeat Him! The Pirate Ganzack! OVA) directing, Tsutomu Kuroiwa (One Piece Film Gold) handling the script, and animation production at Toei Animation.


The film is described as such:


Uta—the most beloved singer in the world whose voice has been described as “otherworldly”—is renowned for concealing her own identity when performing. Now, for the first time ever, she will reveal herself to the world at a live concert.

With the Navy watching closely, the venue fills with Uta’s fans—including excited pirates and the Straw Hats led by Luffy, who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance—all eagerly awaiting the voice that the whole world has been waiting for to resound. The story begins with the shocking revelation that she is the enigmatic Shanks’ daughter.
