One Piece Film: Red has officially announced an October 2022 release date in the US after being released in Japan and a few other countries.
On September 4, it was confirmed that the next One Piece film would be seen in US theaters in October. The announcement was made in the US at a college football game.
The news was released on the Toei Animation Twitter account and specifically announced during the USC Trojans football team’s regular-season opening.
Even though making an announcement during an event is rare, it was a memorable unveiling as the Spirit of Troy marching band played music from the movie.
Following the announcement of the movie’s October 2022 release date, the English voice actor for Luffy received a special introduction.
The movie will be released in the US and many other nations, including Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, in the fall of 2022.
According to a rumor made by the well-known One Piece news account @newworldartur, the movies might also be released in the aforementioned nations in October.
Lucky fans in attendance were among the first people in the globe to witness the movie when it debuted during One Piece Day back in July. Then, on August 6, a larger cinema rollout took place in Japan.
One Piece Film: Red was shown in cinemas in a few nations and areas, including France, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Thailand, soon after its release in Japan.
Shortly after its release, the film shattered box office records in its opening weekend and swiftly surpassed One Piece Film: Z to become the franchise’s highest-earning film.
Film: Red recently achieved another significant milestone when it earned more than 12 billion yen at the Japanese box office.
Given the anticipation around it and the fact that Shanks makes an appearance, it is anticipated to earn considerably more at the global box office after its US debut.
Despite being set for release in October, there is no formal date as of yet for One Piece Film: Red.
