One Piece Kabuki Is Really Happening

One Piece Kabuki Is Really Happening

Monkey D. Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates are getting a live-action version, but it might not be one you'd expect.

One Piece is being turned into a kabuki play that will center on the Summit War Saga and, according to Natalie, will be done in a way that audience members who aren't familiar with this One Piece story arc can still follow. The production also aims to remain faithful to the way the characters talk in the manga.

Kabuki actor Ennosuke Ichikawa IV will not only play Luffy, but also the characters Shanks and Boa Hancock (in kabuki, there are only male actors).
