One Piece Film: Red Blu-ray & DVD Confirmed
Toei Animation has confirmed that One Piece Film: Red will be available on Blu-ray and DVD.
It was announced on the official Twitter account of One Piece on February 12, 2023.
It is not uncommon for an anime film to be released on Blu-ray or DVD. It is one method of increasing sales, as each Blu-ray or DVD release is costly.
What's more, with every anime release comes piracy, which drastically reduces sales.
This is why producers are doing everything they can to boost sales by promoting Blu-ray and DVD releases in order to recoup production and distribution costs.
Besides that, each Blu-ray and DVD release includes bonus materials that entice die-hard fans to purchase them.
In the case of One Piece, all of its films have already been released on DVD and Blu-ray.
Fortunately, all of those releases topped Japan's DVD and Blu-ray charts, earning billions of yen in just a week of release.
Because One Piece Film: Red has been well-received in Japan, it is almost certain that the film will be released on DVD and Blu-ray too after its theatrical run around the world.
