During the USC Trojans football season opener last Saturday, it was revealed that One Piece Movie: Red will be released in cinemas in the US in October.
Previously, we only knew that the film would arrive in the fall season, so this announcement narrows down the exact date considerably. With that in mind, a specific release date is still unknown.
You can watch the video from the football match in the tweet below:

“Uta is the most loved singer in the world. Her voice is known to hide her own identity when she performs and her voice has been described as ‘otherworldly’. Now, for the first time ever, Uta will reveal herself to the world at a live concert As the venue fills with all manner of Uta fans – excited pirates, the fleet watching closely, and the Straw Hats led by Luffy who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance – the voice the whole world has been waiting for is about to ring out. The story begins with the shocking fact that she is Shanks’ daughter.”
One Piece Movie: Red is directed by Goro Taniguchi (Code Geass) with a script written by Kuroiwa Tsuto (One piece movie Gold). The creator of One piece, Eiichiro Oda, is an executive producer for the film. The film premieres on August 6, 2022 in Japan.
