One Piece is currently airing its 20th season, with the final episode set to air on 6th June. Fans are wondering what to expect next.
Will there be a theatrical release like Mugen train? Or an anime special or a straight-up 1000th episode epic finale?
The possibilities are endless! With the last One Piece movie coming out in 2019, I am sure many are eager to watch One Piece on the big screens again.
A new rumor has skyrocketed the excitement to the next level for all fans out there!
According to the latest scoop, Toei animation, the studio behind One Piece, has registered a new website domain for a potential One Piece Movie. However, an official confirmation is yet to be given.
One Piece fans have tremendously praised the new Wano Country arc for its captivating plot, gorgeous battle scenes, and political intrigue. It even brought many new fans to the series.
Therefore, with the story of Oden and his Akazaya Nine coming to a close, fans are waiting with bated breaths for the Straw Hats to avenge Oden!
Even if you are not obsessed with One Piece, you would know that the anime’s 1000th episode is coming up along with the series 25th Anniversary!
With fans’ enthusiasm up like never before, One Piece’s franchise has a perfect opportunity to maximize the profit margins with a movie. Though the success of the movie depends on which story arc it will adapt.
With fans worldwide appreciating the Wano Country arc, I genuinely believe that there is no better way to end Oden’s saga than a movie!
Additionally, some fans are also hoping that the God Valley arc will also get an adaptation.
There is also a high possibility for a completely new story that will fit in between the upcoming seasons. The possibility of a new story is mainly because many old One Piece movies have been new tales that were not canon.
Sincerely, I can’t wait for Luffy to beat up Kaido on the big screen, but it’s too early to predict anything. Until then, let’s wait for an official statement from Toei.
