There has been one news. It did well in box office revenue
One Piece voice cast members Mayumi Tanaka (Monkey D. Luffy) and Kappei Yamaguchi (Usopp) announced on Saturday that the franchise's latest film, One Piece Stampede, has earned over 10 billion yen (about US$93 million) at the box office worldwide. Tanaka said that she cannot comprehend such a breathtaking amount as 10 billion, but this means that Monkey D. Luffy is now the King of Movies.
Yamaguchi added that he has never seen 10 billion in cash. He acknowledged that the number sounds like something that the pathological liar Usopp would say, but insisted with a laugh that this is no lie.
Rented the movie on Amazon last night when I had nothing to watched. It was a decent film. The motivations of Festa seem convoluted or too reaching. I don't know how to describe it.
Douglas Bullet wasn't a memorable villain. He had some characterization, flaws as a lonely man who lost the only rival, Gold Roger. Started to see friendship as a weakness. He lost to Luffy and Gold Roger who preached friendship.
CG animation was used heavily. The Wano Arc anime TV series had better fluid animation than the movie.
Positive stuff - seeing a lot of familiar faces. This movie is unique because none of the other movies had more than Luffy's gang. Some newer movies had Lucci and Sabo. No movie so far up to Stampede included a ton of characters from past arcs.
Upon watching the film twice (to do the plot summary for animevice.fandom.com/wiki/One_Piece:_Stampede), the movie does a good job with Luffy in how he doesn't take shortcuts to One Piece. He's all about adventure. Hence why, the series can go on for long.
The impact of Douglas Bullet and the movie - he will probably fade in the obscure. He didn't leave much impact other than showcasing how crazy Roger's crew is. It didn't expand or add anything new to the One Piece mythos.
The movie was pretty much fan service. Yes, they are all non canon, but you can still do something.
The only One Piece movie I find that really stood out was Zoro's movie in that it fleshes out Zoro who hadn't had a major arc of his own compared to other Strawhat crew. Unlike most One Piece films, Zoro beats the antagonist of the film. I find that interesting. It puts a deeper meaning into nakama unlike Stampede where Luffy didn't have any chemistry with Douglas other than him being the only one along with Roger to beat Douglas with the power of friendship. Douglas is a lost beast who lost his purpose after losing the only friend and rival in the world. They don't really stress that character turmoil in the movie.
