What is the release date of One Piece: Red?
Teased by Eiichiro Oda and announced during episode 1000 of the One Piece anime, the feature film adapted from the eponymous manga is scheduled to be released on August 6, 2022 in Japanese cinemas. You won’t have to wait long in France. One Piece: Red will appear on our territory only 4 days after the Japanese release much to the delight of fans. As a reminder, we had to wait 2 months to finally see One Piece: Stampede arrive in our country.
As said before, One Piece: Red will arrive in France on August 10, 2022 directly At the movie theater. After its release in dark rooms, it will be necessary to wait 17 months before seeing the animated film land on a streaming platform due to the chronology of the media in force in our country. In short, the media chronology is a series of rules defining the order and the deadlines in which a cinematographic work can be broadcast after its cinema release according to the supports (DVD, Blu-ray, TV, VOD, SVOD). Since One Piece episodes and the latest movie are available on DNA, it is highly likely that One Piece RED will also be available on this particular SVOD service.
What is One Piece?
With over 500 million copies distributed, One Piece is simply best selling manga in the world. The shonen, created by Eiichirō Oda, was first published in 1997 in Weekly Shōnen Jump. We follow the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a boy who became Man-Rubber after eating a devil fruit… the Gomu-Gomu no Mi. Accompanied by his faithful crew, Straw Hat explores the seas with the ultimate goal of to become the next “Pirate King”.
Following the logic of the previous 14 films, One Piece: Red is most likely not canon to the main story. However, given the direction the manga is taking and the speed at which it’s moving, there’s a remote possibility that the film will be the first feature to land in the main timeline. The information around this subject is still vague, but it should clear up normally with the arrival of good weather.
What is the synopsis of One Piece: Red?
Apart from the trailers, very little information is available on the One Piece Film: Red storyline. The story focuses on the character of Shanks as well as his daughter Uta. The Straw Hat crew heads to a music festival eagerly awaited by many fans. They will find Uta, who is considered the most popular singer in the world, on the premises. As the latter is about to perform in public for the first time, the power of her voice could change the world forever.
