    Full Comment from Eiichiro Oda (Original Author and Executive Producer): 

    “We’ve been working with Netflix and Tomorrow Studios on the massive project that is the Hollywood live-action series adaptation of ‘One Piece!’ How many years has it been since it was announced, right? I know, I know! But rest assured we’ve been making steady progress all along. It’s not easy when you’re working with people from different cultures! But it’s precisely that process that can yield something special! For now, we’re able to announce the main cast! Rather, we need to hurry and announce it, or else it’ll be leaked, apparently! Hilarious, lol. Their face, the size of their mouths and hands, their aura, the way they carry themselves, their voice, their acting skills, their height, the balance amongst the Straw Hat Crew, etc…! We decided on this cast after numerous discussions involving people around the world! These are the people who will be our Straw Hat Pirates! It’ll take a bit more time to get this show done, but we’ll continue to do our best to deliver a show that we’re confident will be enjoyed by everyone around the world! Look forward to more updates in the future!”

     

    Comment From Co-writer, Showrunner, and Executive Producer Steven Maeda and Co-writer and Executive Producer Matt Owens: 

    “We are so excited to set sail with this amazing and talented cast. Finding the right people to pull off the looks, emotions, and actions of the iconic Straw Hats was a long and challenging (and fun!) process. Much like the search for the One Piece itself. But we have finally found the perfect fits! They have already begun working very hard to bring these characters to life. You will come to know and love them just as much as their manga counterparts. All of us can’t wait to show you what we’ve come up with! Onward to adventure!”

  • Logo Unveiled for Netflix’s “ONE PIECE” Adaptation

    11.September.2021 | ANIME&GAME

    Netflix, the world’s largest online entertainment service, has announced an original adaptation of ‘ONE PIECE’ which is scheduled to be broadcast internationally. ‘ONE PIECE’, written by Eiichiro Oda, is an extremely popular manga  that represents Japan globally. Worldwide, over 490 million copies have been sold, beloved by fans of all ages across the world for many years.

     

    The series was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997, starting with the protagonist Monkey D. Luffy going on a journey with the Straw Hat Pirates to find the One Piece, a treasure that was left behind by the legendary “Pirate King” Gol D. Roger.

     

    Now the logo of the live-action drama series ‘ONE PIECE’ has been unveiled, along with the title of the first episode, which matches the manga – “ROMANCE DAWN – Dawn of Adventure-.” Author Eiichiro Oda has taken the role of executive producer for the new series.

     

    There have been many offers to transform ‘ONE PIECE’ into a live action series in the past, but the very first ‘ONE PIECE’ live-action drama will be coming to life through Netflix after Eiichiro Oda and the Weekly Shonen Jump editorial department became convinced that the many difficulties of a 3D ‘ONE PIECE’ could be overcome.

     

    The newly unveiled logo was based on the original logo, with the Straw Hat Pirates emblem featured above the letter O and if you look closely, you can see that the skull has a scar under its left eye just like Luffy. It also seems that a tiny Luffy is hidden inside the skulls nose! The final E also pays homage to the original logo with its anchor shape, raising the expectations even higher.

     

    The first episode title is ‘ROMANCE DAWN – Dawn of Adventure -,’ matching those of the first manga chapter and anime episode. How will Luffy’s iconic story begin? A great number of people are curious to find out.

     

    The famous story of pirates and upheaval is being produced with original author Eiichiro Oda as executive producer, in partnership with Netflix and Tomorrow Studios. In charge of the script and executive production is Matt Owens, who worked on ‘Agents of Shield’ following his time working for the JJ Abrams’ production company Bad Robot. Steven Maeda, best known for ‘LOST’, will also be joining as scriptwriter, showrunner, and executive producer.

     

    The 100th volume of the manga was released on September 3, while the 1000th episode of the anime is scheduled to air on November 21. There have been many commemorative projects in order to “connect the world” during this special occasion, and the live-action adaptation is sure to grab the attention of fans around the globe – It could even be considered the project of the century! The casting is still yet to be confirmed, so stay tuned for more information.
