The fated ONE PIECE FILM RED new information livestream event finally came into port today, and with the help of Mayumi Tanaka (Luffy), Kappei Yamaguchi (Usopp) and other supporting cast members, it unloaded a full bounty of treasure: the voices of Gordon and Uta, a new trailer, theme song details and a new poster visual!


Though his character is still shrouded in mystery, we now know that Gordon will be voiced by Kenjiro Tsuda (Nanami in JUJUTSU KAISEN).



Otherworldly songstress Uta will be played by Kaori Nazuka (Shimizu in Haikyu!!), while her singing voice will be provided by rising J-pop star Ado.
