The fourteenth feature length film of the One Piece franchise broke records when it came to overall receipts in theaters. Releasing across the world, the story of Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates as they search for new treasure hidden by Gol D. Roger as part of the Pirate Expo, One Piece: Stampede quickly became a favorite of Grand Line fans the world over. Now, with a brief North America theatrical run, details for the upcoming home video release have been revealed, letting fans know when they can get their hands on the Blu-Ray/DVD release!
Twitter User NewWorldArtur shared the news that the upcoming home video release for the film will be next year, 2020, on March 18th with a Japanese release that will hopefully mean that a North America release for the film will be right around the corner:

One Piece: Stampede was filled with revelations and action scenes that kept audiences on the edge of their seats, even causing some of the creators behind the franchise to cry in the theaters when they had seen the film originally. As the anime and manga follows the popular storyline of Wano Country, Stampede acts as an amazing side story to the madness currently taking place in the isolationist nation!
