Oooh im loving the outfits for the Straw Hats.

Hopefully this should be a good film, maybe even top Strong World for me.

Meh, Oda is having less involvement with each passing movie.

He wrote Strong World, designed it's characters and even did a promo manga. He was the executive producer for Film Z. Now he's just designed two characters?

According to the OP Podcast people, who are normally reliable, his role in this movie is similar to his roles in all the recent ones, despite the fact that they dropped "film" from this movie's title.

Frankly I don't really buy the way they're trying to promote this movie as something super crazy and unique, or as Oda put it something that would "destroy One Piece" (which just means it's crazy and unique). Film Z was the only newer One Piece movie that really felt like it transcended the common tropes of movies for long-running franchises. Strong World didn't even really do that, and I don't see them doing it again, not with character designs like these. Throwing in a few cool cameos won't do it either.

And to double-post in response to you: Jinbe clearly hasn't officially joined yet. He doesn't show up in color spreads either. He's in a position similar to Vivi right now. When he does officially join, we'll all know, there won't be any debate about it like there has been.

You'll pretty much figure that out once the Whole Cake Island arc comes to an end. This movie is taking place after that, and I'll just say your question will be answered near the end of the arc in order to avoid spoilers.
