USC Trojan’s marching band will perform a special musical halftime show centered around One Piece’s Straw Hat Pirates crew this upcoming Labor Day weekend, when the Trojans play a football match against Rice University. 

The show will be an 8-minute performance of three songs to commemorate the release of One Piece Film Red this fall. The three-song set from One Piece will include “We Are!,” “New Genesis” and “Over the Top!”

Toei Animation also expressed excitement over the news on their Twitter page.

Crunchyroll will theatrically screen the film in North America, Australia, and New Zealand this coming fall. It describes the synopsis of the film:

Uta —the most beloved singer in the world. Renowned for concealing her own identity when performing, her voice has come to be described as “otherworldly.” Now, for the first time ever, Uta will herself to the world at a live concert. As the venue fills with all kinds of Uta fans —excited pirates, the Navy watching closely, and the Straw Hats led by Luffy who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance —the voice that the whole world has been waiting for is about to resound. The story begins with the shocking fact that she is Shanks’ daughter.
