The live-action adaptation of One Piece will finally land on netflix at the end of 2023. A news that should delight all the biggest fans of the manga, patients now since 2020, the year in which the announcement was made. If the release is scheduled for the end of 2023, the first promotional poster for the series has already been published. We see Iñaki Godoy, a Mexican actor, in the role of Monkey D. Luffy, striking the emblematic pose of the mugiwaras. Composed of ten episodes, the first season produced by Tomorrow Studio for Netflix will retrace the “East Blue Saga” arc, i.e. the first twelve volumes of the manga. And she should assemble a well-known cast. Luffy and the Straw Hat Crew will be portrayed on screen by Mackenyu, Emily Rudd, Tas Skylar and Jacob Romero Gibson respectively.
After surpassing 500 millioncopies sold around the world, One Piece has seduced many fans, now worried that the live-action adaptation is not up to the work of the creator Eiichiro Oda. However, the Japanese seems confident and happy to him. “So many things happened behind the scenes, and to be honest, I was the most worried about this project… but it’s really awesome!” he said. If the mangaka supervises the production, Matt Owen takes on the role of screenwriter and seems just as euphoric as the 48-year-old author. “I’m very excited that people can see help me.”, did he declare.
