One Piece Film: Red is riding a wave of box office success, and the film has received a new trailer to commemorate the occasion.

Released via the official One Piece YouTube channel on September 5, the trailer features a synopsis of the film’s story and some key dialogue from its main cast. The latter includes series mainstays like Monkey D. Luffy, the Strawhat Crew, and Red Hair Shanks, as well as original character Uta.

The trailer kicks off by highlighting one of the film’s greatest achievements. Since its release, it has grossed over 10 billion yen at the Japanese box office, making it the first One Piece film to do so as well as the best-selling One Piece film in history. That’s before it even premieres in the West, which should help the film’s global ascent even further.

The trailer then cuts to clips of the characters, starting with Uta’s introduction during a flashback. She says she is the musician of the Red Hair Pirates and she will build a new genesis of freedom for all. Before she can provide an example of her singing skills, the trailer cuts to a scene of Luffy wondering what happened to Uta, only for Shanks to respond that she left to become a musician.

This is followed by another cut, which cuts to a scene of Uta crying in the middle of a burning city and shouting angrily at Shanks.

The trailer then cuts to scenes from the present day, where Uta uses an unknown power to achieve his ambitions. It is then up to the Strawhats and the Red Hair Pirates to stop him, with each side intent on stopping Uta for reasons that are not yet entirely clear. This all happens as Uta’s character-related songs blare and hints of the film’s final conflict unfold.

It’s a good snippet of what the film offers as well as being a nice nod to the film’s success. Fans who haven’t seen the movie yet will want to check it out in full below.
