A second trailer for One Piece Film Red has just been unveiled on One Piece Day. On Friday, a world premiere screening was held at Nippon Budokan, with director Goro Taniguchi and voice actors attending. The second trailer has English, French, Chinese and Russian subtitles.
The film takes place on the "Island of Music" Elegia and will center on a new character named Uta, who is known to be the world's greatest singer and is the daughter of Shanks. Both trailers allude to Uta's familial relationship with Shanks, with the second trailer revealing more scenes from the upcoming film. The trailer gives us a better idea on the friendship developed between Luffy and Uta. In addition, it gives us a glimpse of the performance from Uta at the music festival. The trailer also teases footage of Uta being taken away and the Straw Hat Pirates fighting to get her back.
The project will be supervised by One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda himself and directed by Goro Taniguchi who was the first person to animate the series’ main protagonist Luffy. One Piece Film: Red will premiere in Japanese theaters on August 6 before premiering in theatres this Fall worldwide.
Elsewhere in entertainment, Daredevil is returning with an 18-episode season on Disney+.
