Is One Piece Red film canon? This is one of the trending questions around all the anime forums. Well, the answer is not that simple. We all know the Studio behind One Piece anime and the Red Film is Toei Animation.
So, when Shinji Shimizu, the producer of the movie was asked the same question, he revealed that the upcoming movie will have a separate story. Though the movie will have many similar elements to the anime, it will be a brand-new story.
We have penetrated deeper into the movie leaks, still, we don’t have any verified updates of what all will the creators pick from the original One Piece series. As per sources, though the movie may introduce new characters, the fans will definitely find a bunch of similar faces in the upcoming venture.
This has been the trend One Piece creators followed for a long time. Every One Piece movie picks up a story from the original series, which brings a single, close-off adventure, which has no reference in the official canon series.

The storyline of One Piece Red film starts with Uta, who is the Shanks’ daughter. If you have been following the series for a long time, you already know that Shanks is one of the most prominent members and the chief of the Red Hair Pirates.
If we go with the official description that One Piece Red Film’s trailer provides, Uta is one of the most beloved singers in the world. As of now, the creators have not revealed much about the character, however, the One Piece fandom passes a glimpse of Uta’s character.
The fandom reveals that Uta had a close relationship with Shanks while she was growing up. The show creator Eiichiro Oda has beautifully featured a female character in the One Piece world making Uta the lead face in the upcoming movie.
