Luffy Takes Interest In Red-Haired Pirate Shanks’ Daughter Uta
One Piece Film: Red is centered on the red-haired pirate Shanks’ daughter Uta. A diva and a world-famous singer, her voice has otherworldly capabilities with a capability to help uplift one’s mood. Although she kept her identity concealed for the most part of her career, she did reveal her true identity to the world while singing at her live concert. At the start, Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates initially seem only interested in attending her concert.
However, they get more involved once they get to know that Uta is actually Shanks’ daughter & also Luffy’s friend from his childhood. In a recent trailer, it was revealed that Shanks abandoned his daughter while she was just a child. As per CBR.com, the movie also highlighted the devastating impact it had on her childhood that trailed into her youth as well.
