For a series all about ridiculous powers and exotic locations, Netflix’s live-action One Piece does have a lot of practical locations from Arlong’s Park to the Baratie. Just in, Netflix has dropped a new featurette giving us a look at all the sets that were used in the series.
Check this out:
Take an inside look at the massive sets built for Netflix’s live action One Piece adaptation.
With Disney making good use of ‘The Volume’ to add special locations in shows like The Mandalorian and Obi-Wan Kenobi, it’s pretty great how One Piece decided to keep to the classic methods and build sets—even if some of them are just partial.
It’s particularly interesting how they translated the Going Merry (Luffy’s ship) into live-action. Though the ‘goat boat’ was pretty iconic by itself in the anime, they had to make a few tweaks to pull off the ship in live-action—like making a more realistic smiling goat head.
Admittedly, the special effects for the series were still sparing, especially when it came to Luffy’s powers, but the show just leaned in heavily on the action scenes with Zoro and Sanji. We don’t know exactly where the second season could go, but it’s possible we could be entering the Alabasta arc, and we would get to see new crew members added including Chopper and Nico Robin.
We’ll just have to wait and see until Netflix’s next reveal. In the meantime, catch the live-action One Piece now streaming on Netflix.
