"One year ago, the same pirate who severed Zephyr's arm became a Shichibukai, prompting the instructor and former Admiral to renounce the Marines in order to create his own group, the Neo Marines. With his new group they plotted to destroy all pirates.
doesn't that mean one year ago prior to the start of the series ?
The movie probably wasn't canon but Z himself is a canon character and Volume Z is as well meaning the Shichibukai that cut Z's arm is canon as well so my opinion still stays the same that the new Shichibukai is the one who cut Z's arm who is possibly a new character.

Luffy will never get the spot given the fact he is Dragon's son, it's too late for him to get the spot and i highly doubt Akainu would let him become shishibukai and btw i was shocked by the fact Akainu/WG let Law be shishibukai given the fact he was considered as an ally to Luffy ( during war of the best ) + he was implied in the teenryuubito incident ...
I think Law is actually gonna loose his title if Fujitora is the new admiral, i expect him to encounter Law and DD even if both manage to escape he will report to Akainu thus both being removed their shishibukai title ( DD still seems to be apparently considered as a shishibukai ... )
If they loose shishibukais they will loose the major forces which are Mihawk ( whose loss would be compared to Aokiji's/garp's/Sengoku's loss ) , Hancock and DD ( well he's already out but ... )
as Garp said if those 3 powers don't exist the world could drastically change
Im sure the SN's will take the place of the Shichibukai's and *maybe* schibukai's title will stop to exist.
Manga I read actually
Well, I think Law will not be able to keep his position as a Shichibukai as he has teamed up with the SH and the SHs have huge grudge against the marines and the world government. I seriously think that there will be two new characters to fill the post of shichibukai. The blind man is probably Kyros. and lastly, I do think that the shichibukai will continue to exist as they help to keep the balance in the new world.
Maybe the new character Oda introduced?
Chameleon, if I'm not mistaken..
Why would Oda create an entirely new character then put him in an entirely non-canon story with entirely non-canon plot lines and backstories, with other non-canon characters who have a deep history with him, only to have that character die at the end?
Z isn't canon, Oda said he wasn't canon, I provided a link that reported Oda stating the entire movie to be non-canon, so this isn't an arguable point.
Volume Z was to provide character info for the movie, it fulfilled that function but nowhere does it say that it was canon.
It was all non-canon, if it seems like I'm labouring the point it's because that's exactly what I'm doing.

There's a fine line between not listening and not caring, I'd like to think I've walked that line everyday of my life.
