Besides the War For Wano Arc currently running in the anime series for One Piece, the Shonen franchise by mangaka Eiichiro Oda is also planning to release its fifteenth movie, One Piece: Red, this summer which will focus on the long-awaited comeback of the red-haired swashbuckler known as Shanks. With One Piece already housing a number of episodes from the original anime, as well as working on a new live-action adaptation, a major film from the Shonen’s past has arrived on the streaming service’s library.
Many movies in One Piece’s past have taken the opportunity to summarize some of the major arcs that took place on Monkey D. Luffy’s quest to become the king of the pirates, though the tenth film in the franchise, One Piece: Strong World, was an original story that emerged from the mind of creator Eiichiro Oda. In this tenth film of the franchise, Luffy leads the Straw Hat Pirates back to the East Blue as a mysterious flying pirate ship appears. The film certainly earns its name as the Straw Hats find themselves individually facing powerful beasts in an attempt to once again save the world of the Grand Line.
Netflix released an official description for One Piece: Strong World, which is currently available for anime fans to watch if they currently have a subscription to the streaming service:
“He’s got a plan, an airship and a hostage navigator. To face him, the Strong Hat Pirates have to defeat a floating island of threats,”
As mentioned earlier, Netflix isn’t just in the anime game for the popular Shonen franchise, it is also working on a new live-action series that will be the first in One Piece’s history. While the topic of live-action anime adaptations might ruffle the feathers of some fans, the streaming service has brought on creator Eiichiro Oda to work as an executive producer on the upcoming series, giving fans hopes that this new television series will be able to capture the action-packed adventures of Luffy and company as the anime and manga have for so many years.
