Netflix’s live-action adaptation of “One Piece”, one of the most popular manga series ever, will be released later sometime in 2023.

The giant streamer also released a first-look character teaser art of Monkey D. Luffy. 

The live-action “One Piece” was originally ordered as a 10-episode series in January 2020. It is based on the manga series created by Eiichiro Oda, who also serves as executive producer. 

The Netflix series 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. 

“One Piece” centers on Luffy, a young man who embarks on a journey to become king of the pirates — and to find the celebrated “One Piece” treasure.

The cast also includes McKinley Belcher III, Morgan Davies, Aidan Scott, Vincent Regan, Jeff Ward, Craig Fairbrass, Langley Kirkwood, Celeste Loots, Alexander Maniatis, Ilia Isorelýs Paulino, Chioma Umeala, and Steven Ward.

In partnership with Shueisha, “One Piece” is produced by Tomorrow Studios and Netflix. Matt Owens and Steve Maeda are writers, executive producers, and showrunners. Oda, Marty Adelstein, and Becky Clements also executive produce.

In addition to the manga, which debuted in 1997, Toei Animation has produced 20 seasons of the “One Piece” anime series comprising more than 1,000 episodes. There also have been 15 animated movies based on “One Piece” released to date.
