does two years there was talk for the first time of the real action series (live action) from One Piece for Netflix, and from that moment it was known that this would have ten episodes. Although the plans have followed and the company recently revealed the cast of the ‘Straw Hats’, It looks like there is going to be a noticeable change. After all, it is very likely that there will be fewer episodes than expected.
At least, this was what the medium pointed out Murphy’s Multiverse. As indicated as “exclusive information”, the ten episodes of One Piece will end up being only about eight. So far no official mention of this change has been made.
Apparently, the decision would have been made at some point in its pre-production. This would match the same duration of other series such as, for example, The Witcher.
Is anything else known apart from the few episodes of One Piece and Netflix?
From the beginning it was known that the first season of One Piece would span the entire East Blue saga. These would be at least the first 61 chapters of the anime, in which Luffy manages to reunite his first four companions (Zoro, Nami, Usopp and Sanji) and the events of plot arcs such as Baratie, Arlong Park and Loguetown occur. This would continue until the point where the pirates pass through Reverse Mountain and reach the Grand Line.
With the idea of eight episodes there can be a concern of trying to fit too much that happens in this saga into too little space.. Of course, it is not even known what the duration of the episodes will be. If they last an hour, it is possible that there is room for everything that can happen.
It is believed that this production may be released in the summer time of this year. However, there is still no clear indication of when it may officially arrive on the platform.
