“Uta — the most beloved singer in the world. Renowned for concealing her own identity when performing, her voice has come to be described as ‘otherworldly,’” reads the official synopsis for the film. “Now, for the first time ever, Uta will reveal herself to the world at a live concert. As the venue fills with all kinds of Uta fans — excited pirates, the Navy watching closely, and the Straw Hats led by Luffy who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance — the voice that the whole world has been waiting for is about to resound. The story begins with the shocking fact that she is Shanks’ daughter.”
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.
