The 2022 has been plagued by various outstanding anime like Cyberpunk: Edgerunners or Chainsaw Man, but if there is a Japanese animated film that has caused a sensation among Japanese and Western audiences, it has been One Piece Film: RED.
With each released movie of the straw hat pirates, the box office collects more and more a good amount of money thanks to the enormous narrative and technical level directed by the best filmmakers in Japan. The latest work in the franchise has raised more than 200 million dollars around the world and has exceeded the expectations of all fans.
Well, it seems that the development of the next One Piece movie has already begun after the success of RED, although we will have to wait to see it. This has been confirmed by Artur, an expert in sharing leaks of the work of Eiichiro Odathrough his Twitter account.

Although not an official source, this leaker has a good foundation of reliability. Even so, we can add the statements of Katsuhisa Hoki, Jinbei’s voice actor, through Twitter where he has commented that the next film is in its early stages of production.
Of course, it seems that we will have to wait to be able to see Luffy on the big screensince the development of these films usually takes around 3 years and, knowing that they are in the first steps to produce it, it is likely that we will not see any official information on the film until 2025 or 2026.
