Netflix to Produce Live Action Series of “One Piece”

Published

on

Netflix is releasing a live-action adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s renowned manga. Tomorrow Studios, the studio behind Netflix’s now-cancelled Cowboy Bebop adaption, is producing the series.

Where It Started

One Piece is arguably one of the most popular and well-known manga franchises of all time. Since its first appearance in an issue of Weekly Shonen Jump on July 22, 1997, the manga has been published in 969 chapters and 95 volumes, with more on the way.

How It’s Coming

Filming had been planned for a long time, and if not for the global pandemic, production would have begun in the summer of 2020. We’ve experienced many delays and fake filming start dates since then. The majority of the filming is taking place at Cape Town Film Studios, which has plenty of room for the pirate ships. According to a source close to the production, three pirate ships have been built so far for the program.

Even with multiple tweets and announcements that came out, producers and those on the job have yet to give out a release date. One thing is for sure; we are about to get treated to an adaptation that’s long overdue!

Fans Already Loving Rowan Atkinson’s Latest Netflix Series

Published

By

The “return of Mr. Bean” has fans of Rowan Atkinson’s new Netflix sitcom ecstatic. Fans immediately saw parallels between Atkinson’s new character, Trevor, and the iconic Mr. Bean, whom the actor is best known for portraying, in the ten-episode comedy Man vs. Bee, in which he stars.

Close to Home

Man vs. Bee’s official Netflix synopsis states: “Bumbling dad Trevor tries to get the best of a cunning bee whilst house sitting a posh mansion – but only unleashes more chaos.”

The Difference Being

While there is no denying the parallels between Trevor and Mr. Bean, die-hard fans of the latter character shouldn’t get their hopes up for a full-fledged return of the Bean any time soon, given that Atkinson stated last year that he “doesn’t enjoy” portraying the part.

A lot of appreciation has been given to Kendrick Lamar’s final performance on stage as he drew Glastonbury 2022 to a conclusion on social media. On the final night of the multi-day event, the American rapper wowed the crowd at Worthy Farm with songs from his most recent album as well as his parent

Meaning More

He stood with fake blood gushing from his thorny, diamond-encrusted crown as he finished his act, backed by a variety of dancers, and advocated for women’s rights.

Sending A Message

The US Supreme Court’s decision to repeal Roe v. Wade, the federal law that granted women the right to have an abortion, was the target of this not-so-subtle jab. The decision, which was made last week, has aroused rage and criticism all across the world.

However, Kendrick wasn’t the only performer to bring up the US Supreme Court ruling at Glastonbury. Lily Allen was called out to perform by Olivia Rodrigo, who made sure everyone knew the concert was meant as a protest against the Supreme Court Justices who supported overturning Roe v. Wade.
