One Piece Red: first trailer released, what to remember
One Piece continues to show itself on the front of the stage! After the announcement of the presence of the video game One Piece Odyssey at the Summer Game Festival this Thursday, the making-of and the new actors of the Netflix live-action series, it’s the movie One Piece Red which is taking the spotlight with a first trailer released today on social media. The opportunity to learn a little more about the plot since this trailer features some crisp little details. The first scenes feature Uta (whose name means song in Japanese), Shanks’ daughter. She performs a large-scale concert on the island of Elegia, the island of music. Uta is a singer considered “the greatest singer in the world“. Therefore, it puzzles more than one when Luffy declares to know her well from her relationship with Shanks since she is the latter’s daughter. A scene that refers to other moments in the manga that we will not discuss here.
On the other hand, it is interesting to watch this trailer closely since it delivers some intriguing images. It is one in particular that is worth seeing: the one at 0:36, which appears on the right. It’s hard not to see the resemblance of this animal to the figurehead of the Thousand SunnyLuffy’s crew boat. Is it an animal that served as inspiration to Franky during the construction of the ship or is it the boat that materialized? Where is the special incarnation of the Klabautermann, that spirit who informs sailors that danger is about to arrive? We will definitely wait for an answer to this question in One Piece Red. Finally, if it seems obvious that Luffy and Uta will face each other in an epic fight (Uta wants the Straw Hat to retire from the life of a pirate), we should witness flashbacks recounting their childhood and which will perhaps allow to learn more about the mysterious character that is Shanks.

In addition to the first animated sequences of One Piece Red, this first trailer released by Pathé brings a lot of information concerning the teams behind the film. Gôro Taniguchi is the director, known for his excellent work on the anime Code Geass. On the screenplay, he is accompanied by Tsutomu Kuroiwa (behind the script of the live action film Kingdom). The opening credits, which accompanies this trailer, are titled New era and is sung by the Japanese artist teen.
Regarding the broadcast of this fifteenth One Piece feature film, it was dated recently in France. It is Pathé Wepler who will take care of it. One Piece Red will be released in French cinemas on August 10, enough to wait before the release of One Piece Odyssey on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series. The announcement of the latter was made during One Piece News Coo Online, an event broadcast online to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Eiichiro Oda’s manga.
