Film Red, the 15th installment in the One Piece series, was released in Japan in August. It also premiered in most Western countries this month. Film Red tells a different story from the narrative of a prison break in the earlier versions. It was initially planned to save Bon Kurei from New Impel Down. The Straw Hat Pirates are taken to the Island of Music by Luffy and his childhood friend Uta. A beautiful singer, she wishes to combat suffering and pain through music. But, although it seems like a worthwhile goal, her real plan closely resembles the storylines of two manga and anime’s most famous villains.
Film Red has been a box-office giant. While its production is far from finished, the film has already earned well over 17 billion yen (roughly $122 million) which is the highest-grossing movie in Japan of 2022 so far. Film Red, alongside other classics such as Ponyo, and Spirited Away, has remained a top-earning movie in Japan.
