The movie from 2009 is finally getting a U.S. theatrical release.
Happy 1000th episode to the hit anime One Piece! Toei Animation and Fathom Events have joined together to celebrate the occasion with a special theatrical event, which will be held on November 7th and 9th. This event will showcase the tenth One Piece movie, titled One Piece Film: Strong World, in select theaters across the United States via Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network – the film’s first theatrical release in the U.S. The pre-show includes the premiere of One Piece: Mugiwara Chase featurette. It’s also worth mentioning that the two-night event includes two different formats of the movie: November 7 will show the English dubs and November 9 will show English subs.
One Piece Film: Strong World made its debut in 2009 by creator Eiichiro Oda. It follows the story of the Straw Hats who cross paths with deadly Golden Lion Shiki after they learn of trouble stirring on the East Blue. Shiki, a gravity-defying madman is in need of a navigator and sets his eyes on Nami. After scattering the Straw Hats and sending them to a floating island filled with genetically mutated monsters, Shiki tells Nami that if she doesn’t join his crew her friends will die.
