One Piece is getting a full-blown anime remake on Netflix. The announcement was made during the Jump Festa 2024 event on Sunday, with a teaser claiming that the series will start from the very beginning – the East Blue Saga – using ‘cutting-edge’ visuals to re-imagine Luffy’s adventures in the ocean. Will take advantage of. Wit Studio, known for producing the first three seasons of Attack on Titan, will develop the fantasy pirate anime, which has been rebranded as ‘The One Piece’. I’m guessing the addition of ‘the’ is to differentiate from the original 1999 anime and Netflix’s own live-action series, which had huge success upon release.
Currently, there is no release window or voice-casting information for The One Piece, but the creators aim to provide fans with a ‘fresh but familiar experience’ that promises to be different from the original anime that has been running for 25 years . Although the remake may seem redundant to many, it was only a matter of time before Netflix doubled down on the success of the live-action series and attempted to expand the franchise into more markets. You see, the ongoing anime runs for approximately 1,100 episodes, which is a huge commitment for any new viewer; So refreshing with modern animation will make it easier for them to engage in social media conversations on an episode-by-episode basis. This not only adds more appeal to Netflix, but also helps seasoned fans get a whole new experience.
It’s not unusual for an anime to get a remake years later – Hunter X Hunter is a great example of this, the original 1999 version has a darker theme and better fleshed out its characters. The 2014 version, however, was closer to the manga, faster paced and omitted filler, and appealed to modern shonen audiences.
For now, it’s unclear whether The One Piece is a long-term project and whether it will try to catch up with the ongoing anime run, or whether it will summarize the overall events. For what it’s worth, it doesn’t seem like the studio has any plans to change any canon events, which should be the norm for fans. Wit Studio was founded in 2011 and has also worked on Spy X Family and Warner Bros.’s upcoming Suicide Squad isekai anime, which will be released in 2024.
Based on the acclaimed manga by Eiichiro Oda, One Piece follows Monkey D. Luffy, a rubber-bodied aspiring pirate king who is on a quest to find a mythical treasure from across the dangerous Grand Line. However, before embarking on the journey, he must find a worthy ship and recruit a crew of ragtag misfits he can trust while blindfolded – among them the green-haired master swordsman Roronoa Zoro, the pickpocket Nami, the cunning Usopp and romantic chef Sanji. Its Netflix live-action adaptation was renewed for a second season, while ‘Monsters 103 Merciless Dragon Damnation’, another fairly unknown manga by Oda, is set to premiere in January 2024.
Currently, there is no release window for Netflix’s The One Piece.
