In the movie “ONE PIECE FILM GOLD”, the story takes place in “Gran Tesoro” which is an independent state approved by the government. This entertainment city attracting famous pirates, marines, and super-rich people from all over the world is an absolute sanctuary which even the world government cannot touch. Gildo Tesoro also known as “Gold Emperor” rules the city, and intends to completely change the power structure of the new world by using the power of his money to burn —.
The second trailer has released some footage of the movie for the first time. The characters whom Luffy and his crew meet at Gran Tesoro have been designed newly by Eiichirou Oda. The popular character called Akainu is also shown, indicating dramatic adventures lying ahead again.
The last scene of the trailer video shows Luffy and his crew getting caught. What kind of battles will unfold? We should be looking forward to the release of the movie this summer.
Eiichirou Oda will serve as the executive producer of “ONE PIECE FILM GOLD” as he did with the previous one, “ONE PIECE FILM Z”. The film will be directed by Hiroaki Miyamoto, who was the third general director of the TV anime series, and be scripted by Tsutomu Kuroiwa, who are active in movies and TV dramas such as “Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de (The After-Dinner Mysteries)” and the “LIAR GAME” series. Since the previous film was a smash hit with a box office revenue of 6.87 billion yen, the latest one is also drawing strong attention.
From March 19th, advance tickets with a second present will be sold at theaters throughout Japan. The extra benefit is “Original Calendar Full of Model Sheets Newly Illustrated by Eiichirou Oda”. This should be a collector’s item which fans must have.
