We have been talking to you for years about this Live adaptation of the cult manga “One Piece”!
A real “sea serpent”! 😉
Finally, Eicchiro Oda tells us more about it on his Twitter account …
This is the Manga info of the week: the cast of the future Netflix series is known and – surprise! – it was chosen in perfect agreement with the Mangaka!
The official Twit of Sensei Oda and its translation:
“We are working with Netflix and Tomorrow Studios on the massive project of the Hollywood live series adaptation of ONE PIECE!
It’s not easy when you work with people from different cultures! But it is precisely this process that can give something
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 hold themselves, 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! ‘
Here is the Main Cast of the first 5 members of the Straw Hats crew (we will appreciate in passing the presentation on a “wanted notice”):
– Luffy : Inaki Godoy (Mexican actor) who seems to have a game that can approach the character of our hero. Her fairly high-pitched voice also matches that of the Anime. (Who killed Sarah)
– Zoro: Mackenyu (Japanese / American actor): arguably the best known as an actor. He has the head of the job! It fits with the origin of the character
– Us: Emily Rudd (American actress, having played in the Fear Street series. She’s the one we love the most: she has charm (and Nami’s eyes)!
– Usopp : jacob Romero Gibson (American actor) with the perfect face of the usopp smoker.
– Sanji: Taz Skylar (British actor). Without doubt the one that inspires us the least …
And the official preview of the actors in video:
Since this casting stops at Sanji, we can hypothesize that the season would be centered on the “East Blue” Arc, as the producer had previously announced.
We appreciate that the producers did not fall into the absolute quest to have Bankable actors: it’s new.
Our first general impression can obviously only be based on physical criteria (face, look, gestures, …) but is – surprisingly! – good, whereas we were until this news in “mode” Old con defender of the original work »…
To be continued, with a little more interested eye than before this announcement!
PS: for ultra-fans, the t-shirts worn by the 5 actors in the video are already on sale: a flick >> HERE << will propel you to the eShop!
