As fans eagerly wait for the release of One Piece Film: Gold, here is something to get you further pumped up as the movie is said to feature new character design and staff.
According to Fandom Post, additional information has been revealed from the Weekly Shonen Jump, and according to the report, the film will be introducing a legendary gambler named Rays Max, who is believed to be a part of the Revolutionary Army.
Furthermore, the site also shared that Masayuki Sato is ?reprising their roles from One Piece Film: Z and One Piece Strong World with the project in the role of character designer and chief animation director.? Plus, Kazuo Ogura and Nobuhito Sue will also be included in the movie as art director and background artist, respectively.
Aside from the the legendary gambler, it was previously reported that another character named Gildo Tesoro will also appear in the film, and it is going to be his debut in the One Piece universe. He is going to be the leader of the ship-based ?entertainment city,? referred to as an independent country by the government. In addition, being the leader, it is also rumored that among his members, Tesoro is the strongest.
Meanwhile, in a trailer released by Anime News Network, it was said that One Piece Film: Gold is taking place to a whole new environment. ?The world will be plundered? to ?the new dimension of the new world.?? Thus, creating the idea that Tesoro is a character who resides in another dimension and would only appear in the pirate world during the movie, not in the series. However, as we said before, it is too early to jump into conclusions and we just have to wait for further details.
One Piece Film: Gold is set to be released on July 23. It is directed by Hiroaki Miyamoto and written by Japanese novelist Tsutomu Kuroiwa.
