The official English Twitter account for Toei Animation began streaming an English-subtitled trailer for the One Piece Stampede anime film on Thursday. The video is an English-subtitled version of the recent trailer, which previews WANIMA's theme song "GONG."
The film will open in theaters in Japan on August 9, in celebration of the anime's 20th anniversary. The first 3 million theatergoers will receive the One Piece Comic -Kan-Banpaku- manga. 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.
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. 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.
Other guest cast members include:
Yusuke 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
