A new One Piece video celebrates the beloved Japanese manga series by recreating some of its most well-known moments in live-action form.
A One Piece video celebrates the series by showing real people paying homage to some of its iconic moments. The now well-known Japanese manga has been around since 1997 and consists of an impressive 97 volumes. Written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda, it follows a boy named Monkey D. Luffy and his crew, the Straw Hat Pirates. Luffy’s body is rubber-like due to him accidentally eating a Devil Fruit, which plays a role in his story. One Piece depicts Luffy’s quest for the title treasure, which he seeks to become the King of the Pirates. Though the series is beloved in its own right, One Piece has become a full-fledged franchise, consisting of movies, novels, and a long-running anime TV show.
A live-action One Piece series is also on the way at Netflix. Announced in January 2020, season 1 will consist of 10 episodes. As of September, casting hadn’t started, though writer Matt Owens has already begun teasing the series. He’s spoken about the three central elements of One Piece, including its humor, ability to make people cry, and successfully surprise them using reveals, action, and world building. Owens’ goal is to make sure at least one of these components is present in every episode of the live-action series.
Though the new One Piece show is still a ways off at this point, a new video gives viewers an idea of what to expect. One Piece shared footage on its YouTube channel showing people reenacting iconic moments from the series in honor of its new Chapter 1,000. Check out the video below:
The video is the perfect way to celebrate One Piece‘s newest milestone. It pays homage to the series from when it was first created to now. It also illustrates the universality of its stories. It’s neat to see some of One Piece‘s biggest moments play out in real world settings, which shows how it transcends fiction.
The video should increase excitement for the live-action series. It will be interesting to see how closely the new show adheres to the manga that started it all. Hopefully, it introduces new audiences to the exciting world of One Piece, while also satisfying long-time fans of the original series. Of course, viewers won’t find out for sure until the live-action show finally lands on Netflix. With any luck, more information about it will be revealed soon. In the meantime, the One Piece video serves as a reminder of why audiences love it in the first place.
