Currently One Piece has shown us a very important facet that will define the course of its history and in it we find the Straw Hat Pirates fighting against the Beast Pirates as part of the crucial War for Wano; however, the upcoming live-action series produced by Netflix has dared to venture into the series’ past by translating some of the previous Shonen series. With the adaptation recently announcing a handful of new heroes and villains that were specifically chosen for the ten-episode series, series showrunner Steven Madea might be hinting in a post that Buggy the Clown will stick to his anime roots.
Will Buggy’s roots be present?
The showrunner of the series is Steven Madea, a man who has previously worked on many television series, including Lost, The X-Files, CSI Miami, and Daybreak to name a few of his most successful and popular productions. Alongside Madea will be none other than the very creator of the Straw Hat Pirates, Eiichiro Oda, and the mangaka will be an executive producer of the series. In addition to the recently announced heroes and villains, the cast representing the Straw Hats includes Iñaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy, Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp, and Taz Skylar as Sanji.
In the Madea’s official Instagram pagethe showrunner for Netflix’s upcoming One Piece live-action series shared a rather unique piece of art that could hint at the fact that Buggy will be sticking to his anime roots. He actually saw her in Gol D. Roger’s former apprentice sporting a giant red nose and makeup to match the play:
Notably Buggy has not had much prominence in the current history of One Piece, despite the fact that the span of this contentious arc in which the Straw Hats fight against the Beast Pirates has dealt a devastating blow to the clown. With the abolition of the “Seven Warlords System” by the army, Buggy is now unemployed and in a rather difficult situation, from which we don’t know if he will come out.
Lastly, for those unfamiliar with the actor who will be playing Buggy in the live-action One Piece, Jeff Ward, you probably remember him from some of his previous work including Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Brand New Cherry Flavor and Hacks, to name a few of his best-known performances.
