Glasgow, UK, 25 November 2022 - Anime Limited and Toei Animation are excited to announce that the world-famous Straw Hat Pirates will be taking over London with video projections opposite the iconic London Eye and other key locations to celebrate the record-breaking release of One Piece Film: Red, which has earned over £800,000 since it opened in cinemas nationwide earlier this month.

The takeover will be projected onto the County Hall of London, opposite the London Eye on Saturday 26th November between 18:00 - 23:00, as well as other locations across London.
