At the Netflix 2023 Tudum event in Brazil, Netflix revealed the first teaser trailer for the One Piece live action adaption, which was also announced to air on August 31st. All 5 main cast members were there to celebrate the release of the first trailer.
Here is the teaser trailer for Netflix’s One Piece:
Iñaki Godoy was onstage wearing an outfit similar to his character Monkey D. Luffy, but without the hat, with a very friendly and excited attitude as with the other cast members.
Trying to hold back tears as she was explaining what it felt like to be part of something huge, Nami actress Emily Rudd said, “I have grown up with anime. I’ve been an anime lover since I was a kid. And being a part of One Piece has truly been a dream for me. I feel so lucky to be living my dream and I cannot wait for you guys to see the dream come to life!”
Mackenyu, who plays Roronoa Zoro, said, “it’s about Luffy and his journey to finding the biggest treasure in the world, with us, Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji.”
Explaining the character that he plays, Godoy very cheerfully responds with, “Well, I play Monkey D. Luffy. A young man with a big dream to sail around the world with his Nakamas, find the ultimate treasure, the One Piece. And become the king of the pirates!”
The other cast members gave their own summaries for the characters they play.
“I play Roronoa Zoro. A bounty pirate hunter, determined to become the world’s greatest swordsman.”
“I play Nami. She’s a clever little cat burglar, who’s very good with a bow staff. And she’s got a couple of secrets as well and ends up coming along with these boys and keeping them in line.”
Jacob Romero Gibson said, “I play the legendary Captain Usopp, who will one day be the brave warrior of the sea. And I’ll say just about anything if it helps save the people I care about, you know?”
And Taz Skylar said, “I play Sanji. A chef with a fearless kick who dreams of finding the all blue!”
Godoy ends with a message to the fans of One Piece: “This story means the world to me. I feel so honored to be your Luffy and to be able to tell this story. Thank you Brazil and enjoy the ride!”
