First, is the movie canon? Not according to an interview with producer Shinji Shimizu. “Those are different stories,” he says. This makes sense since none of the other One Piece movies are completely canonical. .
For Film: Red, learn a little more about Shank’s background. For example, towards the end of the final battle, Shanks remembers the first time he met Uta. At that moment, Shanks remembers looking up at young Gol. D Roger and Rayleigh, and he mutters to himself. I knew that Shanks was a young crew member of the Roger Pirates, but this seems to confirm that he was in the Roger Pirates from an early age.
Why are small notes like this important? According to an interview with producer Shinji Shimizu, Eiichiro Oda himself is the “Executive Producer, Character Designer, Screenplay Reviewer” and is the one who participates the most in this One Piece movie. . It’s no surprise that an extra level of attention is given to the film to highlight such an important and mysterious character as Shanks.

The most action in the history of the Red Hair Pirates! A familiar Yasopp uses Observation Haki to connect with his son Usopp. A few are adept at handling guns, but there are also electrified staff and crew members who appear to have the ability to fire projectiles from their mouths. Once the main battle is over, the Navy threatens to take Uta again, and Shanks releases Haki the Conqueror. One of the Four Emperors!
Will I see Uta-san again? we probably won’t. As mentioned in the film, Uta used the Wakeshroom to stay awake long enough to transport people into the dream world. He denied the medicine of Hongo, the chief doctor of the Red Hair Pirates, and came back from the dream world singing to everyone. As we learned in her film, those affected by her songs wake up again after she goes to sleep. A closer look at the final shots of the Red-Haired Pirates crew surrounds what appears to be a coffin with a Jolly Roger flag over it.
Are there any post-credits scenes?
Finally, there is no major post-credits scene in the One Piece Film Red movie. There’s a little bit of Luffy saying his usual catchphrase above the figurehead of the Thousand Sunny while remembering the song. It’s a long credits that gives us a glimpse of the character. It also included smaller characters such as Rika, who gave Zoro food when he debuted in the series, and the pirate Guymon, who was trapped in his chest.
