After the film’s theatrical run officially ended in late January, Toei Animation announced that One Piece Film: Red will be released digitally in the US and other countries later this month.
With its upcoming digital release, fans who missed out on seeing it in cinemas and those who want to relive Uta’s story will soon be able to do so at home.
The film will be released on a variety of platforms digitally. With this upcoming release, it’s likely that we’ll also see a streaming and DVD release very soon.
One Piece Film: Red’s Successful Theatrical Run
One Piece Film: Red is the newest film in the beloved franchise, and it was released as part of the franchise’s 25th anniversary.
The movie premiered in mid-2022, with a wide release in Japan following in August 2022.
Given that it heavily features fan-favorite Shanks, coupled with the fact that it celebrates One Piece’s 25th anniversary, One Piece Film: Red was a highly anticipated release.
So, it came as no surprise that it dominated Japan’s box office.
Soon after it was released in Japanese cinemas, One Piece Red became the highest-grossing One Piece film of all time.
It was also number one at Japan’s box office for 11 consecutive weeks, making it one of the country’s biggest movie hits.
When it was released internationally in the following months, the film’s global box office tally increased even more.
By the end of its theatrical run, the film became the 4th highest-grossing Japanese movie of all time worldwide.
