Sharing is caring!

Netflix releases the first poster and pictures of the live-action crew of the hit anime series.

Three years after the official announcement of One Piece coming to life, Netflix has finally revealed that the popular manga series is ready to set sail on the streaming giant in 2023! Along with its broadcast, the company also teased fans of the highly anticipated TV screen adaptation with the beautiful art of Monkey D. Luffy, clad in his iconic straw hat and red vest, raising his fist in the air as he looks out into the sea with the sun setting on the horizon.

One Piece live adaptation is primarily based on the longest-running manga series created by Eiichiro Oda. It was serialized in 1997 and has since made waves, spawning an anime in 1999 and now the eagerly anticipated live-action adaptation. In January 2020, the author of the manga series, who also serves as the executive producer of the show, shared that they were producing a 10-episode live-action series.

One Piece Live-Action: Here’s What We Know So Far

One Piece series basically revolves around the adventure story of the impulsive and optimistic teenage pirate, Monkey D. Luffy, who has been bestowed with the power of the Devil Fruit, which allowed his body to gain the qualities of rubber. As a result, Luffy is capable of bouncing, twisting, bending, and experimenting with many stunts to fight his enemies.

In his quest to become the ‘King of All Pirates’ and find the mythical treasure called One Piece, he was able to recruit crewmates that eventually became his dearest friends and family. As previously announced, Iñaki Godoy will take the lead in the series. With him are Mackenyu Arata as the skilled swordsman, Roronoa Zoro; Emily Rudd as navigator Nami; Jacob Romero Gibson as the great inventor, Usopp; and Taz Skylar as the warrior cook, Sanji.

Aside from the aforementioned cast members, joining the crew are Morgan Davies, McKinley Belcher III, Aidan Scott, Langley Kirkwood, Vincent Regan, Jeff Ward, Craig Fairbrass, Celeste Loots, Alexander Maniatis, Ilia Isorelys Paulino, Chioma Umeala, and Steven Ward. One Piece Live-Action is produced by Tomorrow Studios (Cowboy Bebop) and Netflix, in partnership with Shueisha. Matt Owens (Agents of SHIELD) and Steve Maeda (Lost) serve as writers, executive producers, and showrunners of the series. Together with Oda, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements work as executive producers.

To date, Netflix has not issued the exact date of release for the upcoming One Piece live-action series. However, you can still watch the 15 animated films based on the series or marathon the now 1,043 episodes of the anime series, which debuted in 1997 under Toei Animation.
