One Piece Netflix Live-Action Cast: Why Most Straw Hat's Are Missing

Netflix has officially revealed its Straw Hat cast for the upcoming One Piece Live-Action production. However, not all of the Straw Hat’s are listed in the reveal. Inaki Godoy (Monkey D. Lufy), Mackenyu (Roronora Zoro), Emily Rudd (Nami), Jacob Gibson (Usopp) and Taz Skylar (Sanji) are the only characters revealed.

This means that Nico Robin, Tony Tony Chopper, Franky, Brooke & Jinbe are all missing. Is this going to be another “Krillin isn’t important enough of a character for Dragon Ball Evolution” situation? I doubt it. There are most likely two reasons for these characters to not be revealed yet.

  1. It’s possible that Netflix is simply yet to be cast and actors are still auditioning for the roles.
  2. The series is only going to focus on the early days of One Piece and is expecting the production to be more than a “one-off.” This will enable them to incorporate the others in the production later on. remember, One Piece already has over 1000 manga chapters and will also have over 1000 anime episodes by the time this all is released. It will be too crammed, an issue other anime live-action adaptations have had in the past, if they were to introduce everything in a brief period of time.
