Netflix's One Piece Trailer Sets Sail For The Grand Line

Netflix's adaptation of the popular manga and anime series was filmed "without compromises" according to One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda.


Just in time for One Piece Day, a new trailer for Netflix's upcoming live-action One Piece series has arrived. Like the manga and anime source material, this new look at the show kicks off with one of the most iconic moments of the long-running series, as it shows the legendary pirate king Gol D. Roger, starting a new golden age of piracy right before his execution by the World Government.

Additionally, the trailer also shows a few other faces that'll antagonize the Straw Hat Pirates crew, as Devil Fruit-user Buggy the Clown and the fish-man Arlong appear in this teaser to menace Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Usopp, and Sanji. In a letter penned by One Piece creator by Eiichiro Oda, the legendary mangaka remarked that there "were no compromises" on the show and that his creative input helped shape the direction of this input, even leading to several re-shoots to fit his and the production crew's vision.

"There was so much that went into it--all of the efforts by the actors, the building of the world and the costumes, presenting things in a way that can only be done in live action, the dialogue--and the entire process of so many people putting their heads together was a festivity in and of itself," Oda wrote.

One Piece stars Inaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy, Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp, and Taz Skylar as Sanji, and arrives on Netflix on August 31. Additional cast members includes Vincent Regan, Ilia Isorelys Paulino, Morgan Davies, Aidan Scott, Langley Kirkwood, Jeff Ward, Celeste Loots, Alexander Maniatis, McKinley Belcher III, Craig Fairbrass, Steven Ward, and Chioma Umeala.
