One Piece Gets New Film Set in New World Arc
posted on by Egan Loo
Fuji TV's Saturday airing of the One Piece Film Strong World anime included a teaser to announce that production on a new One Piece film has been green-lit. The teaser said, "Urgent announcement! Production on the greatest film in One Piece's history — the newest theatrical film which will surpass Strong World — has been green-lit!! The curtain now opens on the first battle in the New World arc on the final seas!!"
Eiichiro Oda's One Piece pirate manga entered the New World arc last fall, and the television anime adaptation followed suit this past October. There has not been a feature-length One Piece film since One Piece Film Strong World in 2009, although there was the half-hour "One Piece 3D: Mugiwara Chase" short in March. There will also be a "One Piece 3D Gekisō! Trap Coaster" event short at select theme parks and theaters in December.
