For the 20th Anniversary of the One Piece manga, Toei is going to be producing a new One Piece movie, called One Piece: Stampede. I know, the name isn’t quite as impressive as it should be. The previous one, called Film Gold, had a decent name. The one before that was One Piece: Film Z, and it was probably the best One Piece movie so far.
We also had Strong World, and that turned out to be great as well. Among all those names, Stampede doesn’t quite have the same weight to it, but I’m sure that this movie will be incredible. The reason is simple, and that’s because this is a movie for the 20th anniversary of the manga, so it is bound to be special.
One Piece: Stampede Spoilers
Anyway, so what do we know about the movie so far? Well, we have a Key Visual for the movie out already. It looks like there is a lot of floating debris, and Luffy’s Strawhat flying by.
Some people have been asking if it indeed Luffy’s Strawhat, or Roger’s. Well, I’m pretty sure that this is after Luffy took over the Strawhat and that’s because you can see the marks that Buggy left on the hat at Orange Town. The Strawhat looks tattered and it seems Luffy may not be in good condition in the movie either.
A teaser for the movie dropped as well, and there was little to no new content there. We got to see the backstories of all the Strawhats, and it seems that they will all have an important role in the movie. Here’s the teaser for the upcoming One Piece movie:
Here’s how the official website for One Piece: Stampede describes the movie:
“The release date of the latest ONE PIECE movie was decided to be Friday, August 9th, 2019! “ONE PIECE STAMPEDE (スタンピード)” will be its title! Stampede is a word that invokes things like “outburst,” “rushing” and “running away.” As a celebration of the anime’s 20th anniversary of broadcasting, this movie will hit theaters in the summer of 2019!”
Furthermore, they do seem to be hyping up some villain who is behind the huge floating debris. Here’s what the information with the Key Visual states:
“What is the meaning of the straw hat flying away into the sky!? And what is that monster lying behind the debris…!? Please wait for future news!”
