Alongside the reveal of the main cast for the live action series, Netflix also shared a special message from One Piece creator, Eiichiro Oda. In his statement, Oda shares his thoughts on the upcoming live action adaptation.

Read Oda’s message here:

“We’ve been working with Netflix and Tomorrow Studios on the massive project that is the Hollywood live action series adaptation of ONE PIECE! How many years has it been since it was announced, right? I know, I know!

But rest assured we’ve been making steady progress all along! It’s not easy when you’re working with people from different cultures! But it’s precisely that process that can yield something special! For now, we’re able to announce the main cast!

Rather we need to hurry and announce it or else it’ll be leaked apparently! Hilarious lol. Their face, the size of their mouths and hands, their aura, the way they carry themselves, their voice, their acting skills, their height, the balance amongst the Straw Hat Crew etc.

We decided on this cast after numerous discussions involving people around the world! These are the people who will be our Straw Hat Pirates!

It’ll take a bit more time to get this show done, but we’ll continue to do our best to deliver a show that we’re confident will be enjoyed by everyone around the world! Look forward to more updates in the future!”

Currently, there’s no word yet on a release date on Netflix’s One Piece series yet.
