The franchise has announced a new film titled One Piece Film: Red with a new protagonist Uta. This is the first One Piece film ever to have a female lead, and that’s not the only thing that makes her special.

As with all anime, One Piece will be holding up the Wano Country arc for a while and introducing a new mini-arc to set the premise for its upcoming One Piece Film: Red premiering this year.

However, official news for the mini-arc announcement will be out in July.

As I was saying, Uta is special for many reasons, like being the world’s most famous diva and being Shanks’s alleged daughter.

Yep, that’s right. Shanks has a daughter, and she’s the world’s most famous celebrity figure and singer. It’s not much of a surprise when you consider how Shanks is a legendary guy among the pirates, so I guess it’s in the genes.

But it’s still a lot to take in. Shanks is a mysterious character, and suddenly we’re told he has a blood relative, that too, a daughter. So, to not overwhelm fans, the franchise decided to set up a mini-arc before the film’s release.

Oda is a mysterious and unpredictable man, so it only makes sense that he shoves such plots right in our faces when we least expect it.

The movie is about Uta and Shanks, but we all know that the Strawhats will somehow find their way amid the chaos.

About One Piece

One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since July 22, 1997.

The man who had acquired everything in this world, the Pirate King, is Gol D. Roger. The final words he said at the execution tower were “My treasures? If you want it, I’ll let you have it. Look for it; I left all of it at that place.” These words sent many to the seas, chasing their dreams, headed toward the Grand Line, in search of One Piece. Thus began a new age!

Seeking to be the greatest pirate in the world, young Monkey D. Luffy also heads toward the Grand Line in search of One Piece. His diverse crew is joining him along the way, consisting of a swordsman, marksman, navigator, cook, doctor, archaeologist, and cyborg-shipwright, this will be one memorable adventure.
