The wait is officially over: The trailer for Netflix’s „One Piece” adaptation is here.
„One Piece” is a live-action adaptation of the beloved Japanese manga of the same name. In the eight-episode series, Monkey D. Starring Inaki Godoi as Luffy, Mackenzie as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp, and Doss Skyler as Sanji. The first look was released at the Netflix Tutum 2023 event in Brazil. It will be released on Netflix on August 31.
The show tells the story of Luffy, a young man on his way to becoming the pirate king, with a group of friends who help him on his treasure hunt.
Eiichiro Oda, creator of the original „One Piece” manga, is the series’ executive producer and worked closely with Netflix to ensure the show was as accurate to his vision as possible. He posted a statement on „One Piece” Twitter in May about the show’s progress.
„Even though they understand each character, we come from very different cultures,” Oda said. „So, when it comes to entertainment, we have different codes, skill sets and objectives. Sometimes it can be frustrating on both sides. It felt like, 'We’re all trying to get to the same place, so what if we’re not on the same wavelength?’ Is the product even possible?!’ There was even a time when I thought that.
„I believe this is the last chance to bring 'One Piece’ to the world,” he said. „If we’re going to do it, I can keep an eye on things while I’m still active… It was announced that the show would start in 2023, but they promised me I wouldn’t. I’m satisfied.”
Additional cast members include McKinley Belcher III, Morgan Davies, Aidan Scott, Vincent Regan, Jeff Ward, Craig Fairbrass, Langley Kirkwood, Celeste Loots, Alexander Maniatis, Ilia Isorelýs Paulino, Chioma Umeala and Steven Ward.
