One Piece Live Action coming

So they finally announced it, they are going to bring in a One Piece live action television series on TV with a guy who worked as a producer on Prison Break involved in the project. Well will this series get a Game of Thornes treatment? Will it follow the original story? Will it be popular like Games of Thrones? Even Oda is excited by this news. However this is not going to be in Japanese, this is going to be made here in America, made by tomorrow studios. Just imagine if this ever happened, this wiki is going to explode, we are going to end up covering the live action, compare the difference and increase more in page numbers.

It would be surprising if they made this series dark with less comedic nature as One Piece has many dark, serious moments of it's own but One Piece is mostly cartoony and goofy that it may not appeal American audience who don't want to watch a live action with goofiness in it so if they want to satisfy One Piece fans and those not familiar with the series may have to hire best writers who knows how to balance things out. Doing this series can be very expansive as they must work on special effects and computer imagery. Plus with the series with so much details, it could be difficult to get things right. I'm so looking for this live action series and how they will handle it or if it gets popular like the Games of Thrones.

Popular Japanese manga and anime One Piece is getting a live-action television version. It will not be a Japanese TV adaptation, but a foreign one. Earlier today in Tokyo, Weekly Shonen Jump editor-in-chief Hiroyuki Nakano announced the news. In the Natalie photo below, the screen next to him states that One Piece is being turned into an overseas (or foreign) drama. Hollywood producer Marty Adelstein’s Tomorrow ITV Studios, which is also doing a live-action Cowboy Bebop, will be doing the One Piece TV drama. Previously, Adelstein executive produced Prison Break. One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda is quoted by Oricon as saying he “absolutely didn’t want to betray” fans who’ve been supporting the series for the past twenty years. “That was the condition from me,” Oda added in a written statement. According to Nakano, the reason why One Piece will be a foreign TV drama and not a Japanese one is that Oda felt like it would be possible to ensure quality and not betray fans. Also, foreign TV dramas have much bigger budgets than Japanese ones. When asked details like when the One Piece show is going to air or how many episodes it will be, Nakano said “no comment.” Expect those details to be revealed at a later date. While this might be the first foreign One Piece live-action adaptation, back in 2015, the manga was the basis of a live-action Japanese TV drama in which a man mistakenly eats the gum-gum fruit that made Luffy all rubbery.
