One Piece has shown off a look at Jinbe’s cool makeover coming in the franchise’s next feature film, One Piece Film: Red, with its latest poster! There are lots of reasons to be excited as a fan of Eiichiro Oda’s original manga franchise as not only is it kicking off its 25th Anniversary celebration this year, but there are some fun new projects that have started to spark up as a result. With the manga reaching its highest points yet, there are lots of eyes coming in the next major feature film releasing across theaters in Japan later this Summer.
With One Piece Movie: Red gearing up for a release in Japan this August, Toei Animation has begun the full promotional hype train for the film. Starting off with a look at the new Straw Hat designs series creator Eiichiro Oda had crafted for the new movie, the last few days have seen the official Twitter account seemingly counting down to something with special new posters highlighting each of the members of the Straw Hat crew. Now the latest, and final member of the Straw Hats has gotten his poster and you can check out a new look at Jinbe below:

One Piece Movie: Red is currently scheduled for a release in theaters across Japan on August 6th, but there has yet to be any word on its international release plans as of this writing. Directed by Code Geass franchise director Goro Taniguchi, written by One Piece: Gold writer Tsutomu Kuroiwa, and with Oda as creative producer, there is also very little known about the film’s story itself outside of the fact that it involves Shanks in some capacity along with introducing a brand new female character that Oda had specifically requested be involved in the upcoming film because he wanted to design a new female character for the project.
Hopefully all of these mysteries will be cleared up relatively soon as while these posters have been a part of a countdown, it seems that countdown is also far from over. Outside of the original teaser trailer that came from the announcement, there has been no actual footage of the film yet to go on. If the new movie really is scheduled for a release this Summer, now’s the time to start rolling out teaser trailers and more.
