Thanks to Funimation, it looks like you can continue to expand your One Piece anime movie/special collections. One Piece fans can watch their movies like Strong World, Z, and specials such as Episode of Skypiea and 3D2Y. However, it seems like even though Funimation holds the rights to One Piece, they haven’t done any English Dub for the other One Piece titles. It could be possible that Toei Animation will be releasing some past One Piece movies through digital outlets. It’s been announced on Twitter that the 9th One Piece movie One Piece: Episode of Chopper: The Miracle Winter Cherry Blossom is available to purchase and watch through the digital outlets iTunes and Windows. This movie is currently subbed and Funimation has not done a dub, nor released the movie in DVD. This is the 9th movie and it is an alternate retelling of the Drum Island arc where Luffy and his friends meet Chopper. However, unlike other the Episodes series, this abridged version is an alternate story telling where Robin and Franky joins the crew first rather having Chopper join before them. This also introduces Wapol’s older brother Musshuru who serves as the movie’s second antagonist.
Are you going to watch it? What other One Piece movies you want Toei Animation to release?
Thanksgiving is an important holiday for us Americans. Not only we carve the turkey and share food with a friends and family, we reflect what are we thankful for in life. After Thanksgiving, it’s the start of the Christmas season. Black Friday and Cyber Monday become the big hitters for Thanksgiving for shoppers who wants to buy gifts for others and buy something sweet for themselves. If you are going to stay home and watch TV on Black Friday or you want to do something fun, we have the Macy Thanksgiving Parade. Last year, Funimation and Toei Animation teamed up together to create a Super Saiyan Blue Goku float for the Macy Thanksgiving Parade. Goku got to experience a parade with other iconic characters such as Pikachu, Spider-Man and even SpongeBob. It’s been announced that Goku is coming back again for this year.
Good news fans of One Piece, you might be able to see this recent One Piece movie this year!
It’s been announced by Funimation that the 14th film, One Piece: Stampede, is heading towards the West in the theaters. Thanks to Funimation, One Piece: Stampede will be in theaters this fall season in select theaters in North America and Canada! This movie marks the 20th anniversary for the One Piece anime. The movie is going to be an original story and will be supervised by One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda; the movie will be directed by Takashi Otsuka, with Masayuki Sato on character designs. Until further details, it is expected that movie will have English Dub and Sub in select dates.
One Piece: Stampede is a stand-alone film that celebrates the anime’s 20th Anniversary and takes place outside the canon of the “One Piece” TV series. Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat pirate crew are invited to a massive Pirate Festival that brings many of the most iconic characters from throughout the franchise to participate in competition with the Straw Hats to find Roger’s treasure. It also pits the Straw Hats against a new enemy named Bullet, a former member of Roger’s crew.
Knowing that there are increasingly powerful forces in the universe that he has yet to encounter, Goku spends all of his time training to achieve even greater strength. But, one fateful day a mysterious new Saiyan appears before Goku and Vegeta: Broly. How can a Saiyan—a member of the proud warrior race that was completely annihilated after the destruction of Planet Vegeta—appear here on Earth? With Frieza’s return from hell, a fierce battle awaits the three mighty Saiyans who have followed completely different destinies.
Dragon Ball Super: Broly is an anime film directed by Tatsuya Nagamine and written by Akira Toriyama.

If you want more Shonen Jump anime movies, look no further because I found some awesome news for One Piece fans. Toei Animation revealed a trailer on the upcoming movie One Piece: Stampede film. It’s also revealed that the movie will be premiered in Japanese theaters on August 9th, 2019. So far, there is no word from Funimation on a English Dub screening. In this movie we see Straw Hat attend a giant pirate festival called Pirate Expo. Besides the main characters, we have other characters such as Law, Buggy, the marines like Smoker, Hancock, Lucci and even Luffy’s brother Sabo. There is also two new characters designed by One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda named Festa and Bullet who I am assuming is the antagonist of the movie.
Somebody call the fashion police because One Piece is bring in some killer fashion! I found a recent update to the upcoming One Piece film ONE PIECE STAMPEDE in Crunchyroll news. The official One Piece anime site has posted up the “summer vacation” clothes for the 9 Straw Hat Members. It’s pretty common for the Straw Hat crew to get new clothes which is evident in the past films such as Strong World, Z, and Gold. We don’t have any battle outfits yet to see, only the vacation ones. According to the site, the clothes was both designed by the anime staff and Japanese clothes company UT which is sold by Uniqlo.
Last but not least, we also got a teaser trailer for the movie which shows returning characters like Law, Smoker and Buggy along with new characters named Bullet and Festa. It’s unknown what’s the plot but it has something to do with a festival and Gol D. Roger’s, The Pirate King, treasure.
Are you guys excited for the movie? ONE PIECE STAMPEDE is the 14th movie and it will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the anime series. The movie is expected to be released in Japanese theaters on August 19th, 2019.
