One Piece will be having its latest film, One Piece Stampede, later this year. It will be in celebration of the anime adaptation’s 20th anniversary, and Eiichiro Oda himself is doing the character designs. And now, Toei has started streaming the anime’s latest teaser trailer, which also reveals its 9th August release in Japan.

The staff also revealed the character designs of two of the film’s original characters. They are Douglas Bullet, a former member of Roger’s pirate crew, and Buena Festa, a pirate event promoter who is behind the “Pirate’s World Fair”. Of course, Eiichiro Oda designed their characters just for the film.

The Straw hat Pirates cast will be reprising their roles for the film. And while the anime itself premieres on 9th August, the staff announced that advance ticket sales will be opening in Japan on 1st March. Expect them to reveal more details about the film soon enough.
