One Piece: This crazy twist on the new movie RED sounds great
The next movie based on the acclaimed anime One Piece: RED will be released later this year (2022) with a brand new adventure from Luffy & co., but will also bring a really wacky twist for the Straw Hats’ ship.
In One Piece, the Straw Hats are the linchpin of the story, but their ship – the Thousand Sunny – is essentially another member of the crew. It has served her faithfully since the Water Seven Arc, bringing the Straw Hats safely through the most dangerous of adventures. In fact, it’s been a good 15 years since Sunny and the Straw Hats got together! And yet the upcoming film brings One Piece: RED a crazy twist that has never been thought possible before: The Thousand Sunny comes to life!

While some just find the little Sunny creature cute with his thick plauze and belt, others only see the stuff of nightmares in the expressionless eyes without eyebrows. And a third faction thinks both at the same time. The comments section on the One Piece subreddit is a roller coaster of emotions. A keen fan also wondered if the Sunny retains its firepower, turning that thought into a great image:
