The official website for the One Piece franchise revealed more guest cast members on Saturday for the One Piece Stampede anime film.
Naoto Takenaka will return to voice a character for the third time in a One Piece film. Takenaka previously voiced Shiki in One Piece Film Strong World and Double Down and White Jack in One Piece Film Gold. The site did not state who Takenaka would voice in the new film, but asked fans to try to find his character at the Pirates Festival.
Chinese singer and model Ron Monroe and the YouTuber group Fischer's will also appear in the film. Fischer's also have a crossover manga with One Piece that debuted last August.
The film will open in theaters in Japan on August 9, in celebration of the anime's 20th anniversary. 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.
Other guest cast members include:
Tsutomu Isobe as Douglas Bullet, a former member of Roger's pirate crew
Yūsuke Santamaria as Buena Festa, a promoter for the "Pirate's Festival," a festival by pirates and for pirates
Rino Sashihara as Ann
Ryōta Yamasato as Donald Moderate
