Netflix announces the cast for its live-action One Piece adaptation

Netflix’s live-action One Piece adjustment has actually discovered its Straw Hat gang, the very first significant turning point in its mission to adjust among the most popular and long-running anime of perpetuity into a 2nd, fleshier streaming hit. Produced in collaboration with Tomorrow Studios (similar to the upcoming live-action Cowboy Bebop), One Piece intends to win over fans brand-new and old by method of a lively cast, and the true blessing and participation of manga developer Eiichiro Oda, who functions as an Executive Manufacturer on the brand-new program.

Here is that cast, provided through the lyrics of the famous Pirate Rap:

YO!

Ya-yo, ya-yo!

Dreamin’! Don’t offer it up, Luffy! (Iñaki Godoy, from Netflix’s Who Eliminated Sara?)

Dreamin’! Don’t offer it up, Zoro! (Mackenyu, from Pacific Rim: Uprising)

Dreamin’! Don’t offer it up, Nami! (Emily Rudd, from Worry Street)

Dreamin’!

Don’t offer it offer it up offer it up offer it up offer it up offer it up offer it up offer it UP!

Here’s how the story goes, we discover

bout a treasure in the Grand Line, there’s no doubt

The pirate whose eye is on it, he’ll sing

I’ll be King of the Pirates, I’m gonna be King!

Ya-yo, ya-yo, ya-yo… oh-ho…

I would go on however there are 2 more cast members that don’t get discussed in the Pirate Rap: Usopp, played by Jacob Romero Gibson (All Increase) and Sanji, played by Taz Skylar (Bad Guy). I would compose a couple of bars to discuss them, however doing so would suggest staining among the couple of ideal tunes, one that’s right up there with the Foo Fighters’ “Everlong” and the Fugees cover of “Killing Me Softly With His Song.”

The stars all appear to be young stars, early in their professions, which is excellent thinking about that One Piece is notoriously long-running — the manga exceeds 100 volumes this year, and its anime adjustment is, at the time of this writing, on the cusp of airing its 1,000th episode. Definitely no live-action series goes that long — the Western Gunsmoke is the closest, with 635 episodes of rootin’ and tootin’ throughout twenty years — however if the brand-new One Piece wished to offer it a run for its cash, these pirates would depend on the job. Ya-yo, ya-yo, amirite?
