“One Piece” is Getting a Hollywood Live Action TV Series

The One Piece 20th-anniversary event revealed that Hollywood is producing a live-action TV show adaptation of the manga.One Piece

Marty Adelstein (Prison Break), ITV Studios, and Tomorrow Studios are working on the show. The same group is working on a live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop.

Fans didn’t take the news too well:

One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda was not at the event, but he commented on the project and asked fans to remain positive about his decision to approve the adaptation:

“In the last 20 years, the conversation about a live-action adaptation has come up many times. I decided to go forward with the adaptation about three years ago. There were many twists and turns. I met a good partner. Today is just about the 20th anniversary, the announcement of the new work is actually a coincidence. I am very happy. Firstly, I will never betray the fans who have supported me for 20 years. This is my condition. There may be many who are uneasy, but please, give me your voices of hope. Please be excited about the follow-up reports. Please look forward to it!!”

A live-action adaptation is not the only project in store for One Piece. July 22nd is now officially “One Piece Day” across Japan. A new video game, a throwback “East-Blue” TV special, and cover collaborations with 28 different Shueisha magazines are coming up. A special event in Kyoto will also be held in October to usher in the Country of Wano manga arc.

What do you think? Can One Piece translate well into a live-action show?
