“It’s already fun seeing the flurry of reactions after each release of information,” he wrote. He was also quick to remind fans that, while the story is adapted from the popular manga series, they should expect some changes from the source material.

“After the launch, I’m sure I’ll hear about some people pointing out how this character is missing or that scene is omitted, or this bit is different from the manga, but I’m sure they’ll come from a place of love,” he continued. “So I intend to enjoy even those comments!”

In One Piece, Godoy stars as Monkey D. Luffy, along with the Straw Hats played by Mackenyu (Roronoa Zoro), Emily Rudd (Nami), Jacob Romero Gibson (Usopp) and Taz Skylar (Sanji).

Netflix Releases Trailer for Iñaki Godoy’s “One Piece” Series

Iñaki Godoy is bringing in the piece

Netflix has released the trailer for its television adaptation of One Piece, starring the 19-year-old Mexican actor.

Iñaki GodoyOne Piece is a live-action take on the beloved Japanese manga of the same name.

The eight-episode series stars Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy, Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp and Taz Skylar as Sanji.

The first look was revealed at Netflix’s Tudum 2023 event in Brazil. It will release on Netflix on August 31.

The show tells the story of Luffy, a young man on his way to become pirate king alongside a crew of friends who help him on his hunt for treasure.

Eiichiro Oda, the creator of the original One Piece manga, is an executive producer on the series and worked closely with Netflix to ensure the show was as accurate to his vision as possible. He made a statement on the One Piece Twitter in May about the show’s progress.

“Even though they understand each of the characters, we obviously come from very different cultures,” Oda said. “So, when it comes to entertainment, we have different codes, skill sets, and aims. Sometimes it could be frustrating for both sides. It felt like, ‘We’re all trying to get to the same place so how come we’re not on the same wavelength? There was even a time when I thought, ‘Is a foreign production even possible?!’”

“I believe this is the last chance to bring ‘One Piece’ to the entire world,” he said. “If we’re going to do it, I want to be able to supervise things while I’m still active…it was announced that the show will launch in 2023, but they’ve promised that we won’t launch it until I’m satisfied.”

Additional cast includes McKinley Belcher III, Morgan Davies, Aidan Scott, Vincent Regan, Jeff Ward, Craig Fairbrass, Langley Kirkwood, Celeste Loots, Alexander Maniatis, Ilia Isorelýs Paulino, Chioma Umeala and Steven Ward.

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!

Look forward to more updates in the future!”

Finding the right people to pull off the looks, emotions, and actions of the iconic Straw Hats was a long and challenging (and fun!) process. Much like the search for the One Piece itself. But we have finally found the perfect fits! They have already begun working very hard to bring these characters to life. You will come to know and love them just as much as their manga counterparts. All of us can’t wait to show you what we’ve come up with! Onward to adventure!”
