Netflix announces the cast for its live-action One Piece adaptation

Live action from Netflix One piece Adaptation has found its Straw Hat gang, the first major milestone in its quest to turn one of the most popular and longest-running animes of all time into a second, meatier streaming hit. Produced in partnership with Tomorrow Studios (similar to the upcoming live action Cowboy bebop), One piece hopes to attract fans new and old through a vibrant cast and the blessings and dedication of manga creator Eiichiro Oda who is executive producer for the new show.

Here is this line-up, presented via the lyrics of the legendary pirate rap:

YO!

Ya-yo, ya-yo!

Dream! Don’t give up, Luffy! (Iñaki Godoy, from Netflix Who Killed Sara?)

Dream! Don’t give it up, Zoro! (Mackenyu, from Pacific: uprising)

Dream! Don’t give up, Nami! (Emily Rudd, from Scared street)

Dream!

Don’t give it up, give it up, give it up, give it up, give it up, give it up!

That’s the story, we’ll find out

No doubt about a treasure in the Grand Line

The pirate whose eye is on it will sing

I’ll be king of the pirates, I’ll be king!

Ya-yo, ya-yo, ya-yo … oh-ho …

I would go on, but there are two other cast members who are not mentioned in the pirate rap: Usopp, played by Jacob Romero Gibson (All rise) and Sanji, played by Taz Skylar (Villain). I would write a few bars to mention them, but that would mean damaging one of the few perfect songs, one that goes with the Foo Fighters’ “Everlong” and the Fugees cover of “Killing Me Softly With His Song” is at the top.

The stars all seem to be young actors early in their careers, which is good considering that One piece is notoriously long-running – the manga surpasses 100 volumes this year, and its anime adaptation is close to airing its 1,000 at the time of this writing. Episode. Absolutely no live-action series lasts that long – the western Gunsmoke is closest in 20 years with 635 episodes of Rootin ‘and Tootin’ – but if the new One piece wanted to make money, these pirates would be up to the task. Ya-yo, ya-yo, Amirit?
