The popular manga franchise One Piece is set to have a 3D film. A YouTube video surfaced featuring a trailer of the Pirate-action anime in full 3D with the inclusion of another Weekly Shonen Jump manga, Toriko, which will be also adapted into a 3D film. The films will be released on March 19, 2011, but details are still unknown about the story of the film.
Mixed reactions from the fans emerged after viewing the trailer. Some are excited to see One Piece in another media, while some “purists” are not so happy about the change into a different format other than 2D. Although it is quite noticeable that the quality of the film is only comparable to the PS2 game with a little enhancement of the graphics. We’re still not sure if the final output will be similar to the trailer, it could be better. The aforementioned trailer below:
One Piece is a shonen manga written and drawn by Eiichiro Oda. The story revolves around the boy named Monkey D. Luffy and his crew as the Straw Hat Pirates and how they travel to find the One Piece.
