Netflix’s One Piece Live-Action Series Is Officially In Production

Back in November, Netflix revealed the main actors of the live-action A piece series, which 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. While there’s likely to be a long way to go, the NetflixGeeked account came by today to confirm that the series is now officially in production.

A few of the cast members were featured in the photos accompanying the post. It looks like Nami (Rudd) in the first and Usopp (Gibson), Luffy (Godoy) and Sanji (Skylar) in the second, but don’t set that in stone or anything.

When the casting was originally announced, A piece series creator Eiichiro Oda shared the following message:

“We’ve been working with NETFLIX and Tomorrow Studios on the massive project that is the live-action Hollywood adaptation of ONE PIECE! How many years has it been since it was announced, right? I know, I know! But rest assured, we’ve made steady progress since the beginning! It’s not easy when you work with people from different cultures! But it is precisely this process that can result in something special! For now, we are able to announce the main cast! we must hurry and announce it otherwise it will be disclosed, apparently! Hilarious, lol. Their face, the size of their mouth and hands, their aura, the way they carry themselves, their voice, their acting skills, their height, the balance among the Straw Hat crew, etc. .!

We chose this cast after many 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 be enjoyed by everyone around the world! Expect more updates in the future!”
