The live-action remake of One Piece is releasing subsequent week, after what’s been a reasonably constant stream of trailers and previews for the present. Past adapting one of many hottest shonen tales out proper now, an enormous draw for the remake is that it’s bringing within the anime’s Japanese cast to do the Japanese dub for the brand new present. Whereas anime voice actors reprise their roles for all types of expanded media like video video games or motion pictures, it’s one other factor to be doing that for a live-action adaptation.
Netflix has taken time in current weeks to focus on the live-action Straw Hats, performed by Iñaki Godoy (Luffy), Taz Skylar (Sanji), Jacob Romero Gibson (Usopp), Emily Rudd (Nami), and Zoro (Mackenyu Maeda). However for these questioning what One Piece’s Japanese dub shall be like, the streamer released a model of its Comic-Con trailer with the anime forged—Mayumi Tanaka (Luffy), Nami (Akemi Okamura, Zoro (Kazuya Nakai), Usopp (Kappei Yamaguchi), and Sanji (Hiroaki Hirata)—talking over their human counterparts. Not one of the footage within the trailer is new, however it’s a enjoyable (and in addition form of surreal) little bit of fan service which will improve the present for longtime followers of the franchise. If the present will get future seasons, hopefully the opposite Straw Hats get dubbed by their Japanese actors to finish all the set.
Together with the trailer above, Netflix launched one other missive from One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda. With the present so near launch, Oda’s pleasure is palpable as he writes, “Onto the Nice Pirate Period! Because it’s Netflix, you’ll be able to watch it in your family or in your smartphone. However it may as effectively be a film, so it’s best to watch it on as huge a sceen as attainable, with the amount cranked up, and revel in it as many occasions as you’d like!!”
One Piece involves Netflix subsequent Thursday, August 31.
