Funimation is Bringing ONE PIECE: STAMPEDE to North American Theaters
This year is the 20th anniversary of the hit anime and manga series One Piece. To celebrate, Funimation Films has secured the rights to the 14th film, One Piece: Stampede, and will be airing it in theaters across the United States and Canada. There’s no exact release date, but the press release does say “this fall.”
Colin Decker of Funimation released the following statement:
Meanwhile, Masayuki Endo of Toei Animation (the company that makes One Piece) is excited for fans in North America to see this:
One Piece: Stampede is directed by Takashi Otsuka with Masayuki Sato providing the character designs. It should also be noted that Stampede does not take place in the normal storyline of the manga and anime, so anyone can watch it and they shouldn’t be too lost. Will you be watching it in theaters?
