If you are a fan of One Piece, then you already know you should be excited about the live-action version, which premieres on Netflix in ten days. If you are new to the world, then Netflix’s new behind-the-scenes video, which includes never-before-seen interviews with the cast and the creative team of One Piece might just be the thing to convince you.
One Piece aims to bring Eiichiro Oda’s iconic manga to life in a new format — but of course, there are always challenges. But there are, of course, also rewarding moments when it comes to bringing such a beloved story to life … especially considering the people involved in doing so are all very big fans.
And honestly, this is just a cool video. This is a cool story. And hey, the actors and writers involved should, you know, be properly compensated for the cool things they do. Just a thought, AMPTP. Just throwing it out there.
You can check out the video below and get excited with us:
Based on Japan’s highest-selling manga series in history by Eiichiro Oda, ONE PIECE is a legendary high-seas adventure unlike any other. Monkey D. Luffy is a young adventurer who has longed for a life of freedom since he can remember. Luffy sets off from his small village on a perilous journey to find the legendary fabled treasure, ONE PIECE, to become King of the Pirates! But in order to find the ultimate prize, Luffy will need to assemble the crew he’s always wanted before finding a ship to sail, searching every inch of the vast blue seas, outpacing the Marines, and outwitting dangerous rivals at every turn.
