Netflix has just revealed its main cast for the live-action adaptation of One Piece via Twitter (and quickly deleted it) with the cast fronted by Iñaki Godoy, Mackenyu, Emily Rudd, Jacob Romero Gibson, and Taz Skylar.
It’s been almost two years since Netflix first announced that they, alongside Tomorrow Studios, was working on a live-action series and although we’ve had a few updates throughout that time, we’ve never once known who will star in the cast. That’s until today!
While the series is in production, we have a sneak peek at who the cast of the live-action series will be.
So, let’s walk you through the new cast announcements for Netflix’s One Piece live-action.
Godoy is the central character of the story. Godoy is already a part of a Netflix Original, Who Killed Sara? He played Bruno in the series.
Monkey D. Luffy was the first to appear in the anime's chapter and episode 1. He is the creator and captain of the powerful Straw Hat Pirates.
