One Piece Stampede is the major film project being released to commemorate the anime’s 20th anniversary.
It is scheduled to be released in Japan on August 9, 2019. The news was first announced following the broadcast of Episode of Sky Island.The film’s title was announced alongside a teaser trailer on December 11, 2018.
Fans recently got a closer look on Eiichiro Oda’s designs for the new movie in a recent magazine, and though they are still sketches, they provide the best look at the new Straw Hat outfits yet.
First showed off during the series’ panel at Jump Festa 2019, the character sketches reveal that the Straw Hats are wearing wildly varied outfits once again. The Straw Hats usually get a full makeover for each of the films, thus appropriately making each one feel like a big event, and their newest looks seem to be the biggest departures for each of them yet.
Luffy obviously leads the charge with his giant hats, and fans are definitely wondering why Luffy’s carrying a huge viking helmet on his back…

There are currently no concrete details as to how involved original creator Eiichiro Oda is with the new film, either, but he has provided initial design sketches for each of the Straw Hats’ new outfits for the film.
The official Twitter for the film has been teasing a deeper meaning for the title as well as it was mentioned when the film was first announced, “One Piece: Stampede is the title!
Stampede is a wording meaning rushing or running away. As a film made to honor the anime’s 20th anniversary, it will heat up the Summer of 2019.
What is meant by the straw hat dancing in the sky!? And the huge monster made of rubble behind! Please wait for more news!”
