One Piece’s official Twitter account has posted some new photos of Uta – the female character introduced in the movie Red as the estranged daughter of red-haired Shanks. Red-Haired Shanks is a powerful pirate captain who gave Luffy the straw hat he always wears on his head and also inspired a group of young heroes to pursue their pirate dreams. A younger version of this character appeared in the trailer of One Piece Film: Red – the film will be released in Japan in August this year. The content of the film will revolve around Luffy and the Straw Hat crew to a new island to participate in a famous music festival. Singer Uta also appears in this festival and plays an important role in the events that will follow.
In addition to adding characters, One Piece’s Twitter also regularly reveals new Straw Hats’ costumes. Besides the musical theme, Luffy and his friends will have classic punk rock costumes combined with pirates.
The film is made under the supervision of manga author Eiichiro Oda. According to Oda, the inspiration for the film was based on his desire to have a new female character, because he felt “very tired of drawing legendary old men”. The screenplay for the movie is done by Tsutomu Kuroiwa, who wrote the script for One Piece Film: Gold. Goro Taniguchi takes on the role of director, he has experience in making Code Geass. The film’s voice actors are all actors who have participated in the anime series.
Besides, the live action version of One Piece made by Netflix has also announced the actor to take on the role of Red-Haired Shanks. Actor Peter Gadoit, who played Cyrus in the ABC series Once Upon A Time in Wonderland, was chosen to play this powerful captain. Currently, fans are still eagerly waiting for Netflix to announce the official image of the cast in the movie as well as images of the ships.
