‘One Piece’ release date: Live-action show coming to Netflix
Ahoy, One Piece fans!
Netflix announced on Monday that its live-action adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s popular manga series will be released worldwide later this year. The streaming giant also unveiled the show’s first official poster: a silhouette of protagonist Monkey D. Luffy setting sail on the seven seas as the sun sets.
Another image of several characters on a beach in front of a pirate ship has also surfaced – but Netflix is asking fans to visit the streaming service’s website to check it out.
Created by Steve Maeda and Matt Owens, Netflix’s One Piece is based on Oda’s pirate adventure novels of the same name. Oda is executive producer on the series, along with Maeda, Owens, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements.
The highly anticipated project stars Iñaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy, Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp and Taz Skylar as Sanji. Netflix hasn’t announced any additional cast members yet.
This is far from the first time One Piece has been adapted for the big screen. A hit anime series inspired by Oda’s work has aired on Fuji Television in Japan since 1999 and on Cartoon Network in the US since 2004.
Numerous One Piece animated films have also been released on television and in theaters since the early 2000s. The latest big-screen adventure, One Piece Film: Red, premiered in the United States in November.
