The live action produced by Netflix follows the adventures of the Straw Hat Pirates as they travel through the oceans. The crew is in search of “One Piece”, a treasure that will crown Monkey D. Luffy as the King of Pirates.

Netflix has been vague about the plot but clarified that it will have significant changes in comparison to anime and manga. These changes sparked a conversation about whether live actions like this are necessary or not. Rest assured, the changes will make sense because Oda is one of the executive producers of the show.
