The Straw Hat Pirates also showed support for the premiere in official artwork of the crew cosplaying as characters from the sci-fi franchise. The tie-in was due to a a special trailer for One Piece Film Gold that will screen prior to the Japanese premiere on Friday. Advanced tickets for One Piece Film Gold are also going on sale that day.
Sanji as Han Solo, Nico Robin as Princess Leia, Nami as Princess Leia (Slave Bikini ver.), Brook as C3PO, Usopp as Darth Vader, Tony Tony Chopper as Yoda, and Franky as Chewbacca. Zoro and Luffy appear to be Jedi, probably Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
One Piece Film Gold will open next summer with director Hiroaki Miyamoto. Eiichiro Oda will serve as the film's executive producer as well as being credited with the original work. Oda also served as the executive producer for the previous film in the franchise, One Piece Film Z.
