SDCC: Crunchyroll Announces One Piece Films, New Series Streaming Soon

The Crunchyroll Industry Panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2023 took place on Thursday, July 20 at 3:00 PM PDT in California’s San Diego Convention Center.

Crunchyroll announced on July 22 that it will be bringing three hit One Piece films to its streaming service on July 27, including One Piece Film: Gold (2016), One Piece: Stampede (2019), and last year’s theatrical blockbuster One Piece Film Red (2022), which became the franchise’s highest grossing film and the sixth highest grossing anime film globally to date.

All three will be available for streaming in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

This collection of feature films comes after the highly anticipated release of the English dub of the One Piece anime series on Crunchyroll on July 5, which began with the first 976 episodes.

During today’s panel, it was announced that another batch of English dub episodes, consisting of episodes 977-988 (Season 14 Voyage), will premiere on July 25. Only the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa have access to the English dub of One Piece on Crunchyroll.

Crunchyroll also announced the acquisition of two new anime titles, SHY and Fluffy Paradise. Both will be available for streaming very soon!
