It looks like work has wrapped up on the first season of Netflix’s live-action adaptation of One Piece. Actress Emily Rudd, who is set to take on the role of the Cat Burglar Nami, has taken to her personal Instagram to announce that she’s wrapped up work. She looks back at the long production and shares her excitement about bringing her dream role to life.
It’s crazy to think how much time has passed since the production started back in January. There’s still we don’t know yet about the project, as not all directors have been confirmed and there are still some discussions on how the show will be structured. East Blue Saga has a lot to cover and there are also the questions of what the creative team might even adapt or change from the original.
Showrunners Steve Maeda and Matt Owens have shown their dedication to bringing the franchise to life. Eiichiro Oda is also involved in the project, which adds that extra layer of authenticity. With an excited and dedicated cast, it may have the chance of becoming one of Netflix’s next big franchises, as they see it as their next Stranger Things. With a cast and team like it has, it certainly is on the right track.
