A new video on the official One Piece YouTube page has revealed what various Marine and World Government characters will look like in One Piece: Film Red, including former members of Cipher Pol 9.
The new designs for Marines Momonga, Issho, Borsalino, and Sakazuki, as well as World Government members Blueno, Kalifa, and the Five Elders are all seen in the short video below. While some of the characters look quite similar to their usual designs, former CP9 members Blueno and Kalifa sport vastly different outfits than when they were last seen in the CP9 Independent Report manga arc.
One Piece‘s next film will focus on Shanks, the leader of the Red Hair Pirates and one of the Four Emperors. Shanks is an important part of the series lore as he inspired protagonist Monkey D. Luffy to become a pirate and gave him the straw hat that he now wears.
One Piece Film: Red is directed by Goro Taniguchi (Code Geass) with a script written by Kuroiwa Tsuto (One Piece Film Gold). The creator of One Piece, Eiichiro Oda, is an executive producer for the film. The movie premieres on August 6, 2022 in Japan.
