One Piece fans rejoice! Netflix has announced that they will be producing a live-action adaptation of the popular manga created by Eiichiro Oda, and production is currently getting underway. Up to this point, a total of 10 episodes have been ordered, and they will all be produced by the same firm, Tomorrow Studios, that is responsible for the Cowboy Bebop adaption that will soon be available on Netflix.
The following is the most recent information regarding production as well as what we already know about the first season of One Piece.
When it comes to franchises, One Piece is among the most cherished and widely known manga series that has ever been published. The first chapter of the manga was published on July 22, 1997, in an issue of Weekly Shnen Jump. Since then, a total of 969 chapters and 95 volumes have been released, and the number of chapters and volumes continues to rise.
Over 462 million copies of One Piece have been sold, making it the best-selling manga of all time. This achievement places it ahead of other popular manga series such as Dragon Ball, Golgo 13, and Naruto.
One Piece is now one of the highest-grossing fictional franchises of all time thanks to the fact that it has produced over $21 billion in sales throughout its several mangas, films, video games, and other forms of products.
The plot of One Piece?
The events of One Piece take place on a reimagined version of Earth, the sort of world that is currently in the midst of a period known as the “Golden Age of Pirates.” Pirates are ruthless and cutthroat individuals who dominate the seas.
Only the most powerful individuals have a chance of laying claim to the legendary wealth known as “One Piece,” which was abandoned by the most feared pirate of them all, Gol D. Roger. Years after Gol D. Roger’s passing, a young child who goes by the name of Monkey D. Luffy has aspirations of founding his own crew, locating One Piece, and establishing himself as the Pirate King.

When Luffy finally comes of age, he embarks on his great journey to become the next Pirate King by setting sail from Foosha Village in East Blue. This is the beginning of his journey.

Pre-production is the official production status at this time.
The development of the film has been delayed for an extended period of time, and if it weren’t for the widespread epidemic, we would have seen filming begin in the summer of 2020. During that time, Marty Adelstein was asked by SyFy for an interview, and during the interview, he provided some details.
