Comments that Oda has made about the movie in interviews include

・Oda asked the staff to insert several comical scenes, but the staff wouldn’t agree.

・Oda is afraid of the ONE PIECE boom. He is sometimes at a loss for what to do.

・People aside from Oda depict Luffy and Zoro too chatty.

・Oda corrected the script hundreds of times. ex.”Luffy won’t say such a thing, Mr.Suzuki (scenario writer).”

・Oda was deeply impressed at the opening movie and all action scenes.

・Luffy is not a hero. He never never refers to justice.

・Nagamine (animation director) described Z too attractive, so Oda continued saying to him that Luffy was the leading character.

・Masayuki Sato is by far the best ONE PIECE staff. He can draw a picture that is very similar to Oda’s manga.

・Oda completely trusts the voice actors of the strawhat pirates.

・The last scene can exist because Luffy and Z are the same kind in that they are both dreamers.

・Oda is not good at drawing machines. He respects Akira Toriyama, who can easily draw complex machines.

・Oda collaborates with Dupont in the film.(Sanji’s cigarette lighter)
The price of the gold lighter is about 20 thousand dollars.
