One Piece has some iconic music and it was not going to be a small task. Yet, there were more and more hints that perhaps composer Sonya Belousova would be working on the live-action’s music after she shared an Instagram video of some pirate-esque music.
It was back in April that the detectives @OP_Netflix_Fan and @OPLAFandom first shared that Sonya Belousova alongside Giona Ostinelli are working on the live-action One Piece series. Now, ScreenRant has confirmed that they are both working on the project with an official statement by the talented composers:
We’re thrilled to have been invited by Netflix, Matt Owens, Steve Maeda, and Tomorrow Studios to become part of the Straw Hats crew and craft the ONE PIECE live action music universe by serving as composers, songwriters, and music producers for the live action adaptation of the beloved manga. We have plenty of surprises in store for fans of the franchise and new fans. It will be an incredible adventure with songs and virtuosic flamenco guitar, hip-hop and big band jazz funk fusion, folk and circus, rap and big epic swashbuckling orchestra, featuring extraordinary artists. We’re so excited to set sail for ONE PIECE when it premieres on Netflix August 31!Sonya Belousova & Giona Ostinelli
Belousova has also taken to Twitter to share her excitement about being involved with the project. Though, it’s interesting she calls it “BIG BIG NEWS ALERT #1” which gives some hope that perhaps more is on the way. She does hint at more updates to follow.
They both are famous for their work on another Netflix series, The Witcher. They went on to create the viral hit “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher” and have quite some iconic songs that have the same potential. The only question is if we’ll get a new rendition of “To the Grand Line” or “Bink’s Sake” when the series releases in August.
