Netflix Unveils Straw Hats Cast For Upcoming One Piece Live-Action Show

Netflix has revealed five key cast members for the upcoming show based on the hugely popular manga and anime franchise A piece. The cast, announced Tuesday, will play characters in the Straw Hats crew, the series’ central group.

The currently announced cast stars:

  • Iñaki Godoy as Luffy
  • Mackenyu as Zoro
  • Emily Rudd as Nami
  • Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp
  • Taz Skylar as Sanji

Netflix also shared a note from A piece creator Eiichiro Oda on the development of the series, which will reportedly have 10 episodes. Unfortunately, Oda doesn’t say much about what to expect from the show, and about when it might be released, he vaguely hints that “it’s going to take a little longer to get this show finished.”

Netflix has invested heavily in live-action adaptations of popular animation programs. The company also announced on Tuesday that it is working on a Yu Yu Hakusho series for 2023. In August, the company revealed some of the cast for its upcoming Avatar: The Last Airbender show (which we recently learned also includes Daniel Dae Kim). And we’re only days away from the live-action premiere on November 19th Cowboy Bebop.
