Back in November 2011, after the TV broadcast of One Piece Movie 10: Strong World on Fuji TV, it was announced there would be a 12th movie in the series. Then in December it was confirmed the creator of One Piece himself, Eiichiro Oda, would be serving as executive producer for this movie. A few months have passed since then and no news has surfaced, at least on Saiyan Island. Our sincere apologies for that!

So in order to cover the past few months of One Piece movie 12 information, we give you an overview of everything we know so far! Luckily for us, we haven’t missed much, so from here on out we will keep an eye out for you, the great fans of One Piece and Saiyan Island on Luffy’s latest big screen adventure! As always, please feel free to Message us on Facebook, Tweet us or send an e-mail to if you have any news we’ve missed!

One Piece Film Z General Information

One Piece Movie 12 is titled One Piece Film Z and it will be released in Japanese theaters on December 15, 2012. This movie will be the first to take place in the New World where the Straw Hat Pirates will face their strongest enemy yet – a man named Z. It’s unclear as to who Z is exactly, but drawings and commentary by Oda indicate he is a human with cyborg enhancements and unreal power. Z’s Jolly Roger (his logo), is a skull with long tusks and what seems to be a sword going through vertically. Pictures of Z and his Jolly Roger can be seen below.

One Piece Film Z is being marketed as a movie that will “surpass Strong World” and contain a “heroic battle” between Luffy and Z.

One Piece Film Z Staff Information

The movie will be directed by Tatsuya Nagamine, who served as the assistant director for One Piece Movie 8: The Desert Princess and the Pirates: Adventure in Alabasta. The animation director will be the same as Movie 10: Strong World, Masayuki Sato and the theme song will be by an artist named Yasutaka Nakata. As mentioned before, Eiichiro Oda will serve as executive producer, overseeing the movie production just as he did with Strong World.

  • Alex Ndabananiye

    because no other fan base then naruto basher’s senselessly insult other anime’s for no reason nor fact, it’s pure jealously that one piece rival’s it’s popularity

  • ruderhymer

    which popularity dude? its popularity in Japan? No we dont care. We are not living in Japan… that guy can be a troll or a hater but you guys are the ones who bring up Naruto in a One Piece post then bash the series for no reason..  yeah I agree it is all about jealousy
