According to IGN Southeast Asia, the show was announced in 2017, and Netflix has been pretty coy about it since. However, Netflix uploaded a video in Jul 2022 giving fans a sneak peek into the intricate sets of the show.

While the manga spans over 1,000 chapters, IGN Southeast Asia notes that the live-action show will most likely only feature the original East Blue arc, which corresponds with the first 100 chapters of the One Piece manga.

The protagonist, Luffy, will be played by Iñaki Godoy, a Mexican actor. While all cast members have not yet been released by Netflix, the main cast will include Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp, and Taz Skylar as Sanji.

Dive into the world of One Piece

Given its reputation as one of the longest-running manga series, it might be pretty daunting to get started with the series.

However, there must be reasons behind the series’ longevity, and here’s a summary of the story.

The popular series is focused on the story of Monkey D. Luffy, a young boy who wishes to become the King of the Pirates and the ruler of the high seas. After consuming the Gomu Gomu Devil Fruit, Luffy’s body turned into rubber and he picked up unique fighting moves along the way.

Along with his nakamas (crewmates), Luffy hopes to find the legendary treasure known as One Piece. However, he faces many foes along the way, including other pirates and the Navy.
