One Piece All Movies Detailed Guide

Published on August 9, 2022 Edited by Ayaz

One Piece movies are produced and then released by Toei Animation in theaters. The movies have the same cast and characters from the storyline (anime) but usually, have bigger production values and better animation quality. 

Initially, all the movies were released yearly in Toei’s spring ‘Anime Fair’ alongside Digimon movies. After the release of the third One Piece Movie in 2002, Toei sacked the Spring Anime Fair and all individual movies were produced as standalone.

Most of the movies have an individualistic approach and standalone plot that follows the current arc, 8th and 9th movies are based on stories from manga directly.

Eiichiro Oda was not involved in the first 9 movies and just in anime shows but in the 10th movie, Oda wrote the story and was also an executive producer.

Oda Sensei was also involved in 12,13 and 15 movies and served as general producer for these films.

These movies were named ‘One Piece Films’ and along with these movies, there were some shorts that were also released.

Other than movies Toei Animation also worked on some movie-length episodes too.
