One Piece Film Red

The Straw Hat pirates will save the day in One Piece Film: Red.

After a thousand episodes and a few films, the Straw Hate pirates thought they could enjoy life at a musical concert than battling the Navy and searching for that elusive One Piece. But, things are more than meets the eye at the most anticipated concert.

Here is the One Piece Film: Red synopsis:

Uta—the most beloved singer in the world whose voice has been described as “otherworldly”—is renowned for concealing her own identity when performing. Now, for the first time ever, she will reveal herself to the world at a live concert.

With the Navy watching closely, the venue fills with Uta’s fans—including excited pirates and the Straw Hats led by Luffy, who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance—all eagerly awaiting the voice that the whole world has been waiting for to resound. The story begins with the shocking revelation that she is the enigmatic Shank’s daughter.
