At the recent Jump Festa 2024, held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, a significant announcement electrified fans of the beloved “ONE PIECE” franchise. The event revealed that a new anime series titled “THE ONE PIECE” is in the works, promising a fresh take on the saga that has captivated audiences worldwide.

This new project marks a pivotal change in the production of the “ONE PIECE” anime. WIT STUDIO (IG Port subsidiary), acclaimed for its high-quality animation, is set to replace Toei Animation, the studio behind the current TV series. “THE ONE PIECE” will revisit the series’ roots, reanimating the first episode of the original work and the “Eastern Sea” arc with entirely new footage. This exciting development aims to bring a modern touch to the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates, offering a different perspective from the ongoing TV series.

With the series’ distribution planned on Netflix, the production committee – a collaboration involving Shueisha, Fuji Television, and Toei Animation – has expressed its commitment to reimagining Luffy’s journey with contemporary animation techniques. The goal is to create a nostalgic yet novel experience for both long-time fans and new audiences.

The release date for “THE ONE PIECE” remains undetermined, with the project being a long-term endeavor. However, the collaboration with WIT STUDIO and Netflix signals an ambitious effort to reach a global audience, including future generations who will discover “ONE PIECE” for the first time.

“ONE PIECE,” originally a manga that began serialization in “Weekly Shonen Jump” in 1997, has achieved worldwide popularity, with over 510 million copies in circulation. Its long-running TV adaptation and the recent blockbuster movie “ONE PIECE FILM RED” are testament to its enduring appeal. This new series, “THE ONE PIECE,” is set to add another exciting chapter to the epic ocean adventure romance of the quest for the fabled treasure, One Piece.
