Netflix’s One Piece Wraps Production With Emotional Showrunner Message
One Piece’s new true to life series is currently wrapping up its production as it gears up for its full release with Netflix, and the head author and one of the main minds behind the series has shared an emotional message with fans as the production comes to an end. The new true to life adaptation has been in the works for several years at this point, and following several delays from Coronavirus, the production finally got going in the last two or three years. Thus as the series wraps its production, those behind it have shown a lot of affection and support for their experience with the venture.
Matt Owens, the head essayist, co-showrunner, and one of the leader producers behind Netflix’s surprisingly realistic One Piece series, took to Instagram to share his send off message to the production similar as the stars have been in the last couple of days. Considering how long each of them has been working to convey the final venture, Owens is feeling exceptionally emotional as he readies fans for what might actually be coming our way in this brand new take on Eiichiro Oda’s massive and long running action manga franchise.
“I can’t begin to express the adoration and gratitude I feel for this city and these individuals,” Owens’ statement began. “This talented cast, this hardworking group, have assembled something genuinely incredible. Thank your taking me in, making me feel at ease, and realizing this insane and amazing idea work out as expected. And a special shoutout to individuals I came to cherish not even associated with the production. I love you, Mother City. And I cannot wait to show the world everything that you have to offer. The One Piece is real! And we are bringing it to one and all.”
Filming may be wrapped on the series, however Netflix has yet to set a release date for the new true to life One Piece. Owens serves alongside Steven Maeda as showrunner with original creator Eiichiro Oda involved in the production as well. The main Straw Hat team cast for the series includes the likes of Iñaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy, Mackenyu as Roronoa Zoro, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp, Taz Skylar as Sanji.
