The official website for the One Piece Stampede anime film began streaming a teaser video for the film on Thursday. The video teases the 38 returning characters from the story that will appear in the film, and also reveals a new cast member. The site also revealed a new poster visual for the film.

Tsutomu Isobe will play the film-original character Douglas Bullet, a former member of Roger's pirate crew, while Buena Festa is a promoter for the "Pirate's World Fair," a festival by pirates and for pirates.

The film will open in theaters in Japan on August 9, in celebration of the anime's 20th anniversary.

Other guest cast members include:

Yūsuke Santamaria as Buena Festa

Rino Sashihara as Ann

Ryōta Yamasato as Donald Moderate

Original manga creator Eiichiro Oda designed Ann, a singer who can create illusions, for the "One Piece Live Attraction 3 Phantom" attraction at the Tokyo One Piece Tower indoor theme park in 2017. Saori Hayami voiced the character Ann in the previous One Piece Live Attraction "3" Phantom stage production.

The latest anime film in the One Piece franchise, One Piece Film Gold, opened in Japan in July 2016. Funimation screened the film in theaters in the United States with an English dub in January 2017. The company then released the film on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in May 2017.

A One Piece film opened every year in Japan between 2000-2009. The 30-minute One Piece 3D: Mugiwara Chase film opened in March 2011, and the One Piece Film Z movie opened in December 2012.

Update: Fuji TV describes the film's story:

The world's greatest exposition of the pirates, by the pirates, for the pirates - the Pirates Festival. Luffy and the rest of the Straw Hat Crew receive an invitation from its host Buena Festa who is known as the Master of Festivities. They arrive to find a venue packed with glamorous pavilions and many pirates including the ones from the Worst Generation. The place is electric.
