One of the most beloved anime and manga series of all time, One Piece is setting sail for a live action adaptation from Netflix.

Netflix have partnered with Tomorrow Studios and Shueisha to bring to life the adventures of the Strawhat Pirates, a band of pirates we’ve all come to love ever since it was first published in 1997. The original manga, written by Eiichiro Oda, has captivated fans for many years and sold over 460 million copies.

Executive Producers Steven Maeda (Lost, The X-Files) and Matt Owens (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Luke Cage)   will be the writers of the 10 episode live action series of One Piece. Eiichiro Oda, the author of the manga series will be joining the production as one of the executive producers together with Tomorrow Studios’ executive producers Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements.

There is no official date of release as of now, but the die-hard fans of both the manga series and anime have been giving their thoughts on the announcement and a lot of fans are doubtful with the live action adaptation being able to translate the story well. However, some fans are looking forward to Netflix’s adaptation and are thrilled that Eiichiro Oda, One Piece’s creator, will be closely working with the production.
