So why is everyone assuming that Shanks will be present in the movie? Simple, he is the chief of the Red Hair Pirates, and the movie’s theme indicates that he might be present in it.

If Shank’s past is brought to light, then I hope we get to see his battle against Blackbeard. The things we are yet to know about Shanks are simply innumerable. 

Eiichiro Oda is himself making the character design of the mysterious woman who is teased in the visual. Staff members of the film include:

The compilation video was really nostalgic as it summarized Luffy and his crew’s journey, but at the same time, it reminded me that there’s still a long way to go before our journey with Oda ends. 

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.
