Main Cast Announced for Netflix’s Live-Action One Piece Series

Netflix has announced the main cast for its forthcoming live-action One Piece series:

  • Inaki Godoy is Monkey D. Luffy
  • Mackenyu is Roronoa Zoro
  • Emily Rudd is Nami
  • Jacob Romero Gibson is Usopp
  • Taz Skylar is Sanji

Eiichiro Oda posted a message on Twitter to the cast of the live-action adaptation:

“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!”
