Utf8mb4 can use up to 4 bytes/char so yes you need to resize the columns.

In case some charset incompatibilities are hiding in your data, it's usually best to develop the upgrade script on a test version of the database, so that where you get messes you can convert the data from LATIN1 through BINARY to UTF8MB4.
