    Oda Eiichiro’s popular manga, One Piece, will be getting a new movie titled “One Piece Film Z”, on December 15, 2012. The movie will be the first to take place in the New World where the Straw Hat Pirates will face their “strongest enemy yet”, a man named “Z”.



    “One Piece Film Z” will be produced by Oda, and will be written by broadcast writer Suzuki Osamu, who is known for his works in “SMAP × SMAP” and “Hoko × Tate”. Suzuki commented, “I’m a big fan of One Piece. I got to create the story right after Fishman Island. The movie will take place in the New World, and it will be an exciting story.”

    On choosing Suzuki to provide the script, Fuji TV producer Taneda Yoshihiko explained, “Above anything, he’s a fan of One Piece. Also, he is the person who is entertaining everyone in Japan as a broadcast writer for ongoing variety programs.”

    Additionally, it was announced that music producer Nakata Yasutaka (capsule) will be providing the movie’s opening theme. His song, “Panoramic Experience”, is currently being used in the “One Piece Exhibition” at Mori Arts Center Gallery in Roppongi Hills.

    The movie will be directed by Nagamine Tatsuya, who is the director for the popular “Pretty Cure” anime series. Meanwhile, Sato Masayuki will be in charge of the drawings.

    Way ahead of its December release, “One Piece Film Z” started promoting in Japanese theaters on April 21 with promotional flyers and posters, depicting Monkey D Luffy on his “Gear Second” pose, charging an attack to the towering Z. More details for the movie will be revealed in the next issue of Weekly Shonen Jump (this year’s #21/22).
