Why Was Luffy Talking with Sunny?
In the post-credits scene of One Piece Film: Red, Luffy is seen talking with Sunny since he was able to talk to him on Elegia Island.
After Uta prevented the Straw Hats from leaving the island, the Thousand Sunny was transformed into a talking and moving figurehead complete with arms and legs.
Because Uta is the living embodiment of a god in her own world, she can do whatever she wants to anyone, including giving life to the Thousand Sunny.
Sunny then accompanied Luffy and the others in their plan to stop Uta and return to the real world.
Moreover, Sunny even manages to talk one-on-one with Luffy, discussing the adventures they shared together.
Sunny is just like any other comrade to Luffy, which is why he was talking to and calling out to him in the post-credits scene.
