Netflix’s “ONE PIECE” live-action series, which had been released early last year, was delayed for a long time due to the epidemic. This time there is finally new news. Netflix has revealed the cast for its upcoming One Piece live-action adaptation introducing the core members of the Straw Hat Pirates.
In a series of Tweets, Netflix revealed the actors who will be playing Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Usopp, and Sanji. These are the first members who will become known as the Straw Hat Pirates.
Here are the five new cast members:
Iñaki Godoy (Go, Youth!, Who Killed Sara?) as Monkey D. Luffy
Mackenyu (Rurouni Kenshin: Final Chapter, Pacific Rim: Uprising) as Roronoa Zoro
Emily Rudd (Fear Street, Hunters) as Nami
Jacob Romero Gibson (Greenleaf, All Rise) as Usopp
Taz Skylar (Boiling Point, Villain) as Sanji
The stars all seem to be young actors, early in their careers, which is good considering that One Piece is famously long-running. This work is directed by Marty Adelstein, and the original Oda Eiichiro will serve as the executive producer. The exact release time has not yet been disclosed. It is expected that 10 episodes will be released at a time.
