Oda Reveals Crazy Idea That Almost Made a Movie Red Content

Author Eiichiro Oda and the One Piece writing team recently shared with audiences their thoughts on the process of constructing the content for the film’s title. Some ideas are interesting – others sound a bit “weird”. Here, you and Lag are invited to see what almost became the idea of ​​One Piece content.

One Piece Movie Red Content

One Piece Film Red was slated to be the return of Enel. However, the idea was rejected by most of the people at the meeting, so it was dropped.

There was an idea to make One Piece Film Red into a jailbreak movie to rescue Bon Clay. The story will start with Impel Down, the guy who was caught making way for Luffy. Uta should go to the prison to comfort the prisoners. Uta then manipulates prisoners to rule the world. The idea was a bit “dak” so it was dropped – however, Uta’s selfishness and possessiveness were preserved to build the final scene.

Another bold idea is that the Straw Hats will travel back in time to meet the young Shanks. The idea is unique, but also fraught with risk. The members of the meeting argued quite vigorously and were eventually dismissed.

One Piece almost became the story of an academy training devil fruit users. Among these people, there is a person with the ability to travel in time. Then he took Luffy to meet the previous owner of Ren Yizhimei, the model: Nika. This idea is too closely related to the ending of the original manga to be abandoned.

The author Oda once wanted One Piece to have the appearance of Doflamingo and a crocodile. However, the One Piece creator’s request was rejected by the writers because the film should have focused on the song and Shanks rather than adding too many character lines.

According to one opinion, Uta will have the Devil Fruit associated with the book, and she will trap everyone in the world inside the page. This ability coincides with the Devil Fruit possessed by Mont-d’Or, so it was modified to be a music-related ability.

Uta’s character design was originally inspired by an opera singer, and Elegia will be the stage for a chamber orchestra. There are a few ideas to cast her as a country singer with a guitar. After discussing with everyone for a while, everyone agreed that idol singers are currently the most popular, so songs that have an image in the movie are songs.

There’s a rather odd idea that Luffy, Bartolomeo, and Law will fight together…humanoid spaceships. The idea was too simple and unappealing, so it was rejected. However, Oda-sensei seems to like it, and suggests creating a creature like the straw hat Qianyang.

After hours of discussion, Oda-sensei and the One Piece writing team came to the final idea that the film would be a story about Song and his ambition to bring everyone a “virtual” happy life. her. The screenwriter shared that Mr. Oda is very confident in the One Piece world he created, even if the plot brings the Straw Hats into the universe, there is no problem.

Hmm… a straw hat in space? Sounds interesting, right? Will it be the stuff of the 16th One Piece movie, or will the rejected ideas above be reused to create an engaging scene? How do you personally feel about the idea of ​​almost becoming One Piece content? Please leave a comment so we can chat together.
