One of the minor gripes fans usually have with the One Piece films is that they are almost always set in eras or periods where Luffy and his gang are either not yet born or have not reached the levels they have attained in the New World, this makes it a little bit less exciting if you compare to the current episodes, where Luffy and the gang have shown themselves to have improved and have become major contenders in the pirate world.
A recent commercial that aired after Fuji TV’s November 19 premiere of the One Piece: Strong World movie has revealed that there is a new One Piece theatrical film approved for production. Referred to as “the greatest film in One Piece’s history”, the film is set in the “New World”, and will feature the final ocean in the pirate story. The film promises to open the curtains on the first battle in the New World arc.
This new film marks the first feature length One Piece film since Strong World was released back in 2009. There is currently no announcement regarding the release date or title of said movie.
