We see a driven Luffy in the One Piece Netflix final trailer on his mission to become King of the Pirates.
The live-action One Piece adaption follows the seafarer adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, the series’ main protagonist. He sets out from his small town on a perilous quest to discover the fabled treasure known as “One Piece” in order to ascend to the position of King of the Pirates. From there he gathers up his “Straw Hat Pirates” crew before embarking on his quest for treasure across the endless oceans.
Actor Iaki Godoy plays Monkey D. Luffy, Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero as Usopp, and Taz Skylar as Sanji. Additional cast includes Vincent Regan (Vice Admiral Garp), Ilia Isorelýs Paulino (Alvida), Morgan Davies (Koby), Aidan Scott (Helmeppo), Langley Kirkwood (Captain Morgan), Jeff Ward (Buggy), Celeste Loots (Kaya), Alexander Maniatis (Kuro/Klahadore), McKinley Belcher III (Arlong), Craig Fairbrass (Chef Zeff), Steven Ward (Mihawk), Chioma Umeala (Nojiko), and Michael Dorman (Gold Roger).
“If the path seems too easy, you’re on the wrong path,” says the endlessly optimistic Luffy in the One Piece Netflix final trailer.
In an interview with The New York Times, Oda stated that the live-action One Piece series has more dialogue when compared to the manga. Oda was optimistic about the series’ success.
“Thankfully, Netflix agreed that they wouldn’t go out with the show until I agreed it was satisfactory,” said Oda. “I read the scripts, gave notes and acted as a guard dog to ensure the material was being adapted in the correct way.”
The series will debut in just a couple of hours from now on August 31 at 12 AM PST. Get ready to set sail!
