Previously, PVR Pictures set up displays advertising the movie in Mumbai theatres as a surprise for fans. The fifteenth film of the One Piece franchise, One Piece Film: Red will be distributed by PVR Pictures and Odex in India.
One Piece fans are anticipating the film as it tells the story of Shanks and his long-long daughter, Uta. It was released in Japanese theatres on August 6, 2022, and crossed over US$50 million at the box office in just ten days, making it the most successful film in the franchise.
Here is the official synopsis of One Piece Film: Red from Crunchyroll, which is releasing the film in the West this Fall:
“Uta —the most beloved singer in the world. Renowned for concealing her own identity when performing, her voice has come to be described as ‘otherworldly.’ Now, for the first time, Uta will herself to the world at a live concert. As the venue fills with all kinds of Uta fans —excited pirates, the Navy watching closely, and the Straw Hats led by Luffy who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance —the voice that the whole world has been waiting for is about to resound. The story begins with the shocking fact that she is Shanks’ daughter.”
