In celebration of its 20th Anniversary, a new One Piece movie is on its way. It will be the 13th film in the series and will be released in the summer of 2019.
We still don’t know if it will be an original movie or a compilation of past retelling. A lot of fans speculated that it will be based on Rocks(Rox).
Rocks(Rox) is a person or a group of people who were prominent 40 years ago, before the Pirate King Gol D. Roger came into power.
Not much is known about Rocks, especially among those who grew up after their time. They seem to have been powerful, given their prominence prior to Roger’s time and the fact that Garp could not imagine what the Marines would do if they came back into power. Garp is connected to them in some way, with Hina suggesting that he got the distinction of “Hero of the Marines” from dealing with them.
We will get additional information on the new One Piece movie later this week in Weekly Shounen Jump Issue. The leaks will be out early Thursday, so make sure you check out Otakukart for the latest news on the upcoming One Piece film. We certainly hope that it is based on Rox. If it isn’t, I still have high expectations for the upcoming movie. We’ll find out more details soon, and when we do, we’ll definitely share them with you all!
