I hope, that the new Film will be after (!!) the current manga-arc. Anyway, I´m excitied about that more^^
It was only a teaser about the film being green-lit. The Strong World teaser at the end of Movie 9 had much more to show - and then Japanese watchers had to wait more than one and a half YEAR for the film to premier... So of course, the 11th film will be about a topic after fishmen's island. There's no doubt about it.
IMHO, it's gonna come out probably 2012/2013 in cinemas and then 2013 on BD...
Apparently it was announced at Jump Fiesta that Oda will be executive producer, and it will be coming out December 2012
There are Twitter announcments from Shonen Jump and Sakaki Hisashi.
Note that there was apparently some confusion, it was incorrectly tweeted (I hate that word) that he was directing, but he will be producing the film.
they shouldve done a movie about the whitebeard war first. wasnt that the time were the volumes broke all the charts?
Oda already said that Strong World would be the last pre-time skip movie even before Strong World was shown in cinemas...
that was said most likely because he wanted to hint at the timeskip.
if toei wants to do another one they have no reason to stop.
they could make it like the other arc retellings and just add current luffy in it.
But it doesn't work like you want it. Toei has TV rights, but not automatically rights to make movies they want. If Oda agreed this with Shueisha they can't do a thing.
And Oda said no to retellings after Arabasta and Drum. Which is actually why they came up with Strong World.
has anyone posted this ??
It's always the strongest enemy yet. :/
Err, first battle? I'm Kinda scared about that. Not unless it means the seas near Raftel, which I highly doubt.
I'd like to interpret that as "first animated battle on the New World in cinema" for instance, as I would say, that the anime will arrive chapter 650-655 in spring/summer, so they'll probably add a filler on FMI afterwards...
If Z is that strong he might return for a second or even third movie ... (Broly syndrome?)
cool ! im exicted for the movie now so the first arc of the new world it going to be sweet
Even though there wasn't anything about that in the spoilers, there was an announcement in the Golden Week double issue of Shonen Jump about the coming 11th movie starting on Dec 15th, 2012 - and as the ANN article shows: Jump presented a preview sketch of the coming villain called "Z" (ゼット, zetto).
Tatsuya Nagamine is Director (Movie 7: One Piece - Arabasta retelling), Eiichiro Oda is acting Producer, Osamu Suzuki wrote the Script, Masayuki Sato is animation director (as in Strong World). The yet unnamed(?) theme song is performed by Yasutaka Nakata.
As a personal comment: Z looks rather disappointing to me, like a mixure of Morgan and the crab hand pirate that was crushed by Hody...
Redon has posted a larger version of the image on APForums - it's the bigger version of the one on ANN:
