Funimation Films hosted the North American premiere of ‘One Piece Film: Gold’ last night at the Silver Screen Theater in West Hollywood’s Pacific Design Center.
Legendary scream queen and ‘One Piece’ diehard fan Jamie Lee Curtis and her son Tom Guest spent the evening bonding over their love for one of the most beloved and longest running anime franchises of all time.
Originally a Japanese manga series, One Piece was adapted into a television series by Toei Animation (Dragon Ball Super, Sailor Moon) that has since aired over 760 episodes. The original manga series has more than 380 million copies printed worldwide – the best-selling manga series in history. One Piece Film: Gold is part one of a new film series based on this manga and TV series and is a standalone film that does not require new audiences to be familiar with previous content to enjoy the thrill of this new adventure.
One Piece Film: Gold will hit North American theaters for a limited engagement January 10 – 17, 2017. Tickets can be purchased online in advance atwww.funimationfilms.com/onepiecegold. Photo Credit by Randy Shropshire/Getty Images for Funimation Entertainment). Check out the pics of the event below.
