It’s not easy when you work with people from different cultures! But it is precisely this process that can give something special! For now, we are able to announce the main cast! On the contrary, we have to hurry and announce it or else it will be leaked, apparently! Hilarious, lol. Their face, the size of their mouths and hands, their aura, the way they are, their voice, their acting skills, their height, the balance within the Straw Hat crew, etc. …! We chose this cast after a lot of discussions involving people from all over the world! These are the people who will be our Straw Hat Pirates! It will take a little longer to complete this show, but we will continue to do our best to deliver a show that we are sure will please everyone in the world! Expect more updates in the future! “

Maeda and Owens added the following: “We are delighted to set sail with this incredible and talented cast! Finding the right people to pull off the iconic Straw Hats’ looks, emotions and actions has been a long and challenging (and fun!) Process. Much like the search for One Piece itself.
