A theater locator is now available for the One Piece film! Tickets are now on sale for North America, buy them now!
The time is near! From January 10-17 the One Piece Film: Gold will play in theaters across North America. Set in Gran Tesoro, the film will center around Captain Luffy and crew facing off against a powerful king. The film will be dubbed in English for American showings. Since the film’s voice actors are the same cast as the English dub of the One Piece anime, voices should sound familiar. The English dub script writer and director are new to One Piece, but the film still takes its inspiration from the classic manga and anime series. Clint Bickham, voice of Kazu in Air Gear, is the main ADR script writer. Main ADR director Joel McDonald appears as an actor in Summer Wars and other anime.
In addition to the film, Funimation is announcing a contest! The Fly Away Contest could send you and a friend to Vegas for Otakon Vegas. The grand prize winner gets to stay at Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino for the weekend of January 15th-17th to attend the convention. A One Piece DVD and prize pack and a private meet and greet with Colleen Clinkenbeard are additional perks! One second place winner will also get a treasure chest with $500 worth of One Piece items inside! Enter before it’s too late, the contest ends on January 4th!
The trailer above gives a sneak peak into the adventure coming to theaters next month. The film features Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirate crew: Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Brook, Franky, Robin, Chopper, and Sanji. Finally, titled characters Tesoro, Carina, Baccarat, Tanaka, and Dice will make appearances. Other minor characters from the anime will probably have screen time, so keep your eyes peeled!
