Possibly Not Entirely Awful Live Action Anime Adaptation Trailer Video of the Day

What this reminds me of more than anything else is Detective Pikachu, which was enjoyable enough overall, and visually amazing.

I'll give it a look even though I'm not a One Piece fan, having watched about 0.2% of the show.

Disclaimer: Slightly less, because I've watched two episodes out of 1073 and counting.

1 I watched and enjoyed the 4kids dub, but Netflix is a problem for me.

(Okay, maybe my viewing habits have changed a bit since, what, fifteen, twenty years ago?)

Front image of the trailer makes it obvious that they haven't changed Nami's hair color, which kills an obvious line of joking/teasing/complaining. 

I haven't really kept up with the manga. 

I think the first five members of the crew are probably a reasonably good fit for live action. 

Obviously, the guy with the long nose does not have a long enough nose, and the guy we find out had mad science genetic experimentation done on him has not really had mad science genetic experiments performed on him.  Barring possibly the vax.

I think some of the later powers and fights would be significantly harder to do in live action. Obviously if they cover the first band of fishmen pirates, either a purist would have grounds to complain, or the CG might be expensive. 

I don't think they cast a real rubber man, but I've just found out recently that Luffy is not actually a real rubber man, but something a little stranger than that.

2 Netflix seems pretty confident that this will appeal to existing fans, since they're promoting it side-by-side with the anime series and movies. Last time I logged in, at least half of the recommendations were for some arc of One Piece. Personally, my knowledge of it is limited to the first chapter, which we translated out loud in one of my Japanese classes.

My son says Oda has said he's happy with the casting of the crew.  He's a One Piece fan and he cautiously approved of the trailer.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
