The official YouTube channel for the One Piece franchise has posted a second teaser trailer for the upcoming One Piece anime film, Red. The previous trailer confirmed the involvement of the legendary pirate Shanks and a mysterious new female character.
This film will open in Japan on August 6.
Check out the official website.
This new teaser unveils the new female character named Uta.
“The world’s greatest diva, her voice will change the whole world,” the trailer writes in the opening headlines. The video further reveals that Uta, the world’s most beloved singer in the world, is in fact Shanks’ daughter.
Uta is set to hold a live concert in front of the public for the first time with a massive venue full of pirates and the navy in attendance. Her singing voice, which is described as from “another dimension,” seems to hold more power than providing mere entertainment, and Luffy appears alarmed saying, “If he knows his daughter is doing this, Shanks won’t keep quiet!”
“Listen Uta, there is no peace or equality in this world,” Shanks says at the end of the video.
Goro Taniguchi (Code Geass, One Piece: Defeat The Pirate Ganzak! (special)) is directing One Piece Film Red.
Tsutomu Kuroiwa (One Piece Film Gold, One Piece: Heart of Gold, GANTZ:O, live-action Black Butler) is writing the screenplay, and One Piece manga creator Eiichiro Oda himself is serving as executive producer. Oda also designed the “battle wear” characters for the film which have a theme of “rock x pirates”, feature leather, and studs for a Middle Ages armor vibe.
