Funimation Films sets theatrical screenings for this fall
One Piece: Stampede—the 20th anniversary One Piece anime film that marks the franchise's 14th feature—recently crossed the five billion yen mark in Japan. Now it's time to look ahead to its English release, which is set for this fall in North America courtesy of Funimation Films.
Theatrical dates will be announced later, but for now we at least know a general window of when to expect it in the United States and Canada. One Piece: Stampede is directed by Takashi Otsuka, with Masayuki Sato on character designs and original creator Eiichiro Oda on creative supervision.
One Piece: Stampede is a stand-alone film that celebrates the anime’s 20th Anniversary and takes place outside the canon of the “One Piece” TV series. Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat pirate crew are invited to a massive Pirate Festival that brings many of the most iconic characters from throughout the franchise to participate in competition with the Straw Hats to find Roger’s treasure. It also pits the Straw Hats against a new enemy named Bullet, a former member of Roger’s crew.
One Piece: Stampede will be presented in Japanese with English subtitles and in English-dubbed form when it hits theaters. Check out the official website for more info.
