On October 24, anime’s favorite pirates return to the big screen to plunder North American audiences with a special 20th Anniversary feature film — ONE PIECE: STAMPEDE (ワンピーススタンピード, Wan Pīsu Sutanpīdo, 2019) — opening in 1,000 theater locations across the U.S. and Canada. Having grossed more than $48M USD at the box office in Japan, ONE PIECE: STAMPEDE is now the most successful film ever for the global hit ONE PIECE franchise. And with strong advance ticket sales, ONE PIECE: STAMPEDE is expected to smash North American box office records for the franchise.
ONE PIECE: STAMPEDE is a stand-alone film that celebrates the anime’s 20th Anniversary and takes place outside the canon of the ONE PIECE TV series. Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat pirate crew are invited to a massive Pirate Festival that brings many of the most iconic characters from throughout the franchise to participate in competition with the Straw Hats to find Roger’s treasure. It also pits the Straw Hats against a new enemy named Bullet, a former member of Roger’s crew.
