Get The Latest Update On Netflix’s Highly Anticipated Live-action One Piece Adaptation, Including Test Screening Rumors And The Stellar Cast.
Netflix’s upcoming live-action One Piece show has been highly anticipated by fans since it was officially announced in 2020. With little information available about the adaptation, the hype has continued to build as the release date draws closer.
One Piece’s stellar cast includes Iñaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy, Emily Rudd as Nami, Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Taz Skylar as Sanji, and Jacob Gibson as Usopp.
On April 13, a Twitter user named Divinity Seeker claimed that they had heard from test screenings that Netflix’s One Piece “tested horribly” and “the story didn’t make sense to non-fans.” They also criticized the CGI and the inconsistent tone of the series. However, these claims were quickly debunked by Greg Werner and Rogersbase, two recognizable figures in the One Piece realm. Werner called the rumors “entirely untrue,” while Rogersbase described them as a “made-up story.”
Although Netflix has yet to fully promote the release of One Piece, a poster confirms that it will be released in 2023. It’s likely that Netflix and Eiichiro Oda are taking their time to ensure the show is polished before unveiling it to the world. Despite the lack of marketing, the false test screening claims have given the show some free publicity. If a trailer is unveiled in the second half of the year, it’s possible that One Piece could premiere in the fourth quarter of 2023, potentially eyeing a November or December release.
The test screening rumor regarding Netflix’s live-action One Piece adaptation has been debunked by reliable sources. Fans can continue to look forward to the show’s release and the possibility of marketing ramping up in the coming months.
