One Piece Film Z is the 12th movie in the One Piece series. It will be released in Japanese theaters on December 15, 2012. The movie will be the first to take place in the New World, pitting the Straw Hat Pirates against their strongest enemy yet – a man named Z. Drawings and commentary by Oda-sensei indicate he is a human with cyborg enhancements and unreal power. One Piece Film Z is being marketed as a movie that will “surpass Strong World” and contain a “heroic battle” between Luffy and Z.
