Recall that the Netflix adaptation project began in 2017 and that the first season must have 10 episodes. The One Piece series is known to have received a big budget, and should start naturally with the East Blue arc.
MaJ: Eiichiro Oda, creator of One Piece has published an official message translated by the One Piece Netflix Twitter account. You can find them below.
And the translation (IGN France)
“We worked with Netflix and Tomorrow Studios on the massive project of the Hollywood live action series adaptation of One Piece! It’s been how many years since we announced it eh? I know I know ! But you can be sure that we have made good progress all this time. It’s not easy when you work with people from different cultures! But it is precisely this approach that can offer something special! For now, we can announce the main cast! Or rather, we must hurry to announce it or it will apparently be leaked! Hilarious, lol. Their faces, the size of their mouths with their hands, their auras, the way they stand, their voices, their acting skills, their height, the balance within the Straw Hats, etc …! “
“We opted for this casting after many discussions involving people from all over the world! They will be our Straw Hat Pirates! It will take a little while to make the series, but we will continue to do our best to deliver a series that I am sure will be appreciated by everyone in the world! Stay tuned for more information in the future! “
You don’t know if you’re excited or terrified, or both.
