This is one piece of a surprising news! See what I did there? Right, so here’s the big news: One Piece live-action series is coming to Netflix! The making of this One Piece live-action series was freshly announced on Twitter by @NXOnNetflix today, January 30, 2020.
A bit of a background about One Piece
It’s hard to believe if you’ll say that you still haven’t seen a single episode of this anime yet and the more if you’ll say that you haven’t even heard of it yet, but just in case you still really haven’t, here’s a bit of a background about this hit anime for you!
The One Piece manga was first published way back in the year 1997 and its anime series premiered way back in the year 1999, which means that this masterpiece has already been around for around 23 years! This long-running anime series revolves around its male protagonist, Monkey D. Luffy, together with his Straw Hat Pirates in their journey on finding the legendary treasure – One Piece.
Details about the up-coming One Piece Live-Action Series
“I know I announced the production of this back in 2017, but these things take time! Preparations have been slowly progressing behind the scenes, and it seems that I can finally make the big announcement: Netflix, the world’s leading streaming entertainment service, will be lending us their tremendous production support!”Original creator and executive producer of One Piece, Eiichiro Oda
So far, there are only a few details revealed that will sure tease the One Piece fandom, and one of it is that the first season of the live-action series will only be composed of 10 episodes, compared to the original anime series’ first season, which has a total of 61 episodes. With that information alone, you might already be wondering whether or not the exact same scenes from the anime will be replicated to this new up-coming One Piece Live-Action Series or not. Well, there’s no word about how it will be compared to its anime, so we’ll just have to wait until it’s out for streaming. Also, as of this moment, the cast members who will bring this long-running anime show to life are still yet to be revealed.
