In this week’s episode, we see and hear a lot about Straw Hats and Luffy’s crew. The franchise is also getting a live-action film adaptation, which will be released in 2020. In his monthly email, Netflix included a note from One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda on the show’s progress, which is expected to have ten installments.

Unfortunately, Oda does not give any information on the series or when it will premiere; he simply notes that the task will be “a little longer.”

Live-action versions of prominent animated series have been a key area of investment for Netflix.

The company also revealed on Tuesday that it will produce a Yu Yu Hakusho series in 2023. In August, Netflix announced some of the actors who’ll star in its Avatar:

The Last Airbender spinoff (which we recently learned includes Daniel Dae Kim). We’re just weeks away from the premiere of Cowboy Bebop’s live action adaptation.
