A One Piece live-action series has been long overdue but now it's finally happening!
Netflix is working on a 10-episode project based on the popular manga-turned-anime. Explaining the delay, One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda revealed, "I know I announced the production of this back in 2017, but these things take time! Preparations have been slowly progressing behind the scenes, and it seems that I can finally make the big announcement."
"Netflix, the world's leading streaming entertainment service, will be lending us their tremendous production support! This is so encouraging!! How far will the story progress over the 10 episodes of Season 1? Who will be cast!? Please be patient a little longer and stay tuned!!”
X-Files producer Steven Maeda and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D's Matt Owens are reportedly working on the live action series.
One Piece is a pirate adventure story centered on Monkey D. Luffy's journey to becoming a King of Pirates.
