“One Piece Film Red” opens in Spain on November 3, 2022, but the truth is that in other countries (especially with the domestic premiere in Japan) they have already had the opportunity to enjoy the new adventure of Luffy and company. I was able to do it yesterday thanks to a press pass, and I am convinced that many will like it. What is not clear to me is that if perhaps the original version of the script would have been more attractive to a few othersespecially for what was planned with the Gomu Gomu no Mi.
A trip to the past? This is how One Piece Film Red was going to be at the beginning
Has been newworldartur who has revealed that originally “One Piece Film Red” had a VERY different script compared to the final film. I’m not going to give you spoilers, calm down, I’m just going to talk about what has been revealed now that it was considered at the beginning of everything at the plot level:
- At the beginning of everything, One Piece Film Red did not have the names of Uta or Shanks in between, but was going to focus on an academy of Devil Fruit users. ❗
- As a result of the multiple abilities of various academy users, Luffy would end up traveling to the past to make a discovery like few others: the boy who was the previous user of the Gomu Gomu no Mi., his Devil Fruit. ❗
- Even with this context switch they came to think of Shanks eventually, and one idea was that keeping with the theme of traveling to the past, Luffy would meet the red-haired pirate in his younger days at sea.. However, it is something that did not quite materialize. ❌
To be honest, I find the idea of the academy of devil fruit users very interesting, as well as the insistence they had on making use of time travelso I wouldn’t be surprised if in the future a new “one piece“I’ll end up dealing with it. In any case, in the end “One Piece Film Red” ended up having absolutely nothing to do with those initial ideas, but it ended up being a most enjoyable film nonetheless.
