News culture One Piece RED: The main character of the film confirmed in an intense teaser!

Confirmed by the author of the manga himself, the film One Piece Red was formalized during the course of last week on the occasion of the broadcast of the 1000th episode of the anime. The day before yesterday, a 30-second teaser confirmed the main character of the feature film.

Shanks, who else?

We told you about it last week: three years later Stampede, One Piece will host a new film titled One Piece Red. It was Eiichiro Oda, author of the original work, who announced it. And in the wake of the broadcast of the 1000th episode of the animated adaptation, a teaser of the film was published on the Japanese channel of One Piece. As expected by the fans, it is Shanks le Roux who will be at the heart of the work.

A perfectly legitimate choice that makes sense since Shanks le Roux is a pillar character of One Piece. It appears from the first volume of Oda’s work, making Luffy (who is the main character) want to become a pirate. Symbol of this father-son relationship, he gives her his straw hat which becomes a key element to identify Luffy during his adventures: he is often called Straw hat by the Navy or its fellow pirates. Last but not least, Shanks is part of an extremely private pirate caste. Without spoiler, being part of this inner circle is synonymous with domination over the seas and is a witness to great strength. However, in the canon of One Piece, Shanks’ abilities have never been disclosed.

Oda in support, the director of Code Geass at the helm

Unfortunately, this trailer does not provide any additional information. If we know that the feature film will be canon, that is to say that the facts are authentic and fit into the original work, no further details have been filtered concerning the plot or the period of it. However, the teaser recalls that the film will be directed by Gorō Taniguchi, a director known for his collaborations with the animation studio. Sunrise (Gundam, Code Geass). At the dubbing, part of the cast has already been announced:

Insert title

  • Monkey D. Luffy : Mayumi Tanaka
  • Roronoa Zoro: Kazuya Nakai
  • Nami: Akemi Okamura
  • Sanji: Hiroakik Hirata
  • Tony Tony Chopper : Ikue Ōtani
  • Usopp : Kappeii Yamaguchi
  • Franky : KazukiiYao
  • Brook: Yūichi Nagihima
  • Nico Robin: Yuriko Yamaguchi

Finally, the release date of One Piece Red has also been communicated: the film about Shanks will be released on August 06 in Japan. It will therefore not be available before this date in France, especially since the films often take longer to arrive than the episodes of the anime. Until then, we will have to fall back on either the manga or the adaptation: the first will publish its 100th volume in France next month, while the second has seen its 1000th episode aired this weekend.
