Check out the One Piece Live Action Crew Introductions!


One Piece is a popular manga and anime that was first created by Eiichiro Oda in 1997. After the success of these two media, currently the One Piece story will be adapted into a live-action series by Netflix. The series itself will take the story from the original material which tells about the adventures of the Straw Hat pirate group led by Monkey D. Luffy, a Gomu Gomu no Mi devil fruit eater whose body is like rubber and aspires to become the pirate king.

In 2017, when rumors of One Piece live-action first spread, many fans were worried about the “ambitious” idea. This is because in the same year Netflix has just released an anime adaptation of Death Note which greatly disappointed fans. However, this did not dampen Netflix’s enthusiasm for developing live-action One Piece in 2020. And now, the 10-episode series has found its lineup of actors who seem very excited about their roles in the live-action One Piece series later.

Actually, the casting of One Piece has been announced since last November, but this is the first time the actors have appeared to the public and expressed their enthusiasm. In the video that was just shared by the official One Piece Youtube channel, the actors wearing the new One Piece T-shirts took turns introducing themselves and their respective roles. In addition, they also expressed their enthusiasm to immediately play a role in the One Piece live-action series later.

The actors in the video are Taz Skylar ( The Victim, Boiling Point ) as Sanji, Jacob Romero Gibson ( Grey’s Anatomy, The Resident ) as Usopp, Emily Rudd as Nami ( The Romanoffs ), Mackenyu Arata as Roronoa Zoro ( Pacific Rim: Uprising). , Rurouni Kenshin: The Final ), Iñaki Godoy ( La querida del Centauro , Who Killed Sara? ) as Monkey D. Luffy.

Given that anime adaptation is not an easy thing, fans are quite confident in this One Piece live-action series because Oda Sensei was directly involved in its development and casting. It remains to be seen whether Netflix will succeed with this One Piece anime adaptation or not. What is clear this time is definitely different from before, because the pressure from fans is much greater than other anime adaptations. Currently, the One Piece live-action series hasn’t started production yet, so we’ll just have to wait for further news developments, geeks.
