One Piece Film Red Hits North American Cinemas This November

continues to step up their game in the theatrical market, in the wake of the success of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero and Jujutsu Kaisen 0. The next title to be confirmed to be coming to cinemas in multiple territories is One Piece Film Red, the latest film in the One Piece franchise.

The film opened in Japan in August where it has already become the top-grossing film in the franchise, taking in over $93 million so far. The film will be released in Australia and New Zealand on November 3 and in the US and Canada on November 4. It will screen in both subtitled and dubbed versions. The film will also open in the UK and Ireland on November 4 via Anime Limited.

Ahead of the release, there will be a chance for fans in Australia and the US to catch the film in separate English dub and subtitled premieres. In Australia, fans will get a chance to preview the film as part of Crunchyroll Expo Australia. In the United States, the North American premiere will be held in New York in October to coincide with New York Comic Con.

As with the past few films in the franchise, Eiichiro Oda-the original One Piece creator-  has been heavily involved. He's credited as producer and also devised the story for the film and designed the new characters. The film is written by Tsutomu Kuroiwa and directed by Goro Taniguchi.

Uta—the most beloved singer in the world whose voice has been described as "otherworldly"—is renowned for concealing her own identity when performing. Now, for the first time ever, she will reveal herself to the world at a live concert.

With the Navy watching closely, the venue fills with Uta's fans—including excited pirates and the Straw Hats led by Luffy, who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance—all eagerly awaiting the voice that the whole world has been waiting for to resound. The story begins with the shocking revelation that she is the enigmatic Shanks' daughter.

Tickets will go on sale in Australia and New Zealand on October 5 and in North America from October 6. Check out the film's website for details.
