producer Marty Adelstein announed at Jump Festa 2018’s One Piece stage panel that the live-action Hollywood television series adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga will begin with the East Blue arc and will “broaden from there.” The producer also promised that the series will create “a true One Piece” after he discussed the project with Oda.
The East Blue Saga is the introductory saga of the series. Monkey D. Luffy meets Shanks as a young boy living in East Blue. This is where he recruits most of his crew and, ultimately, where the adventure begins. This saga is made up of six story arcs.
The saga starts off with a flashback of Gol D. Roger’s execution. Before he dies, he tells the crowds to go out and search for his treasure. This sparked the Golden Age of Pirates in which countless pirates raise their flags and set off to find One Piece.
The East Blue Saga focuses mainly on Luffy setting off for the Grand Line and gathering crewmates. During the saga, Luffy gains four comrades: Zoro, Nami, Usopp, and Sanji and earns a bounty of Beli30,000,000.
The Hollywood television show adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga series will be a partnership production between Tomorrow Studios, Marty Adelstein and ITV Studios.
Eiichiro Oda launched One Piece manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine in July 19, 1997, with the chapters collected into 85 tankōbon volumes to date. Toei Animation premiere the anime show adaptation of the manga in 1999, in Japan.
