As production on Netflix’s upcoming live-action One Piece has wrapped some time ago, the news well has certainly dried up. We still know very little about when we might expect a release or even an official glimpse at the cast or set beyond what we got earlier this year. Still, even if Tudum didn’t give us something to hold on to, it seems that a few new photos have found their way online to tie us over.
While it doesn’t reveal anything new for the One Piece series, it does give us a glimpse behind-the-scenes on how exactly they tackled shots of the cast on the Going Merry. As shared by @dogy_logy, we get a look on how they made use of various screens to film anything they needed to on the stationary version of the boat.
It looks like they needed quite a few cranes to keep every element they needed stationary. They likely used a screen that will represent them being on the ocean or near an island of some kind. Of course, we don’t know how much time they’ll spend on their iconic ship mostly due to uncertainty how they may have structured the season.
Still, it looks like we can expect some fun shenanigans on the ship and hopefully the team behind the One Piece series will keep those fun moments of the crew just interacting alive with the adaptation. Of course, big parts of their early ventures take place on the various islands of the East Blue which we’re still hoping to get a better look at in the near future besides Baratie and Windmill Village.
