Netflix’s live-action adaptation of One Piece is rumored to have wrapped filming and fans are eagerly awaiting to see an official trailer for the upcoming first season. In fact, fans are so impatient that one fan created his own trailer to tease the upcoming adaptation. It’s so good that initially many One Piece fans were led to believe it was a real official trailer, but if you look closely, this fan used CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) to create this amazing trailer!
You can watch the trailer on Anime Nerd’s official YouTube channel here:
As you can see, the trailer is very well done. Ryan Wai Kin Lam did a great job using the ship designs from the live-action series and then based on them creating his own cg ships for the trailer. You can hardly tell the difference between the official footage of the ships recreated in real life and Wai Kin’s CGI ships! The trailer begins with a shot of Going Merry and Luffy can be heard yelling, “Yeah, let’s do it. Ahead! I take this hidden treasure and no one can stop me!”

Which memorable One Piece scenes are highlighted in the trailer?
Next, the trailer teases Luffy and Zoro’s first encounter when the pirate hunter Roronoa Zoro has been captured and Luffy ends up having to rescue him. After that we see a shot of Zoro fighting Mihawk which looks pretty amazing. Zoro ends up fighting Mihawk when Luffy tries to recruit Sanji from the Baratie (restaurant ship). There’s a shot of someone who looks a lot like Sanji kicking a giant fish, but it’s not very clear. After that, we get a shot of Crocodile (the main villain in the Arabasta arc) dangling Luffy from his hook like a fish. Later we see Nami and even Buggy makes an appearance in this trailer.
I’m sure fans would enjoy seeing a live action adaptation of the Arabasta Arc, but all we know for sure is that they shot all the way to the Arlong Park Arc.
If you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest you check out Ryan Wai Kin Lam’s CG tribute to the East Blue arc. You can watch the video here:
