Key points for One Piece Remake news:
- WIT Studio is set to produce a remake of the One Piece anime to celebrate its 25th anniversary, starting with the East Blue Saga.
- The remake, titled “The One Piece,” will be made for Netflix. Despite concerns, the involvement of WIT Studio brings optimism to the quality of the adaptation.
- The announcement is met with immense excitement in the anime community, providing an opportunity to introduce new fans to the iconic series and overcome barriers like its extensive length.
Oh boy, this is a HUGE news. Perhaps THE biggest news from Jump Festa 2024. We knew WIT was preparing for something important as they dropped two of their major animes, Vinland Saga and Attack on Titan to Mappa. And I think that was probably to eventually clear out the line for this massive undertaking. Yes, One Piece anime is getting a remake. As wild as it sounds, it has been confirmed. And all the people who haven’t checked out this series yet because of the poor adaptation can do so now.
This is a big moment for the anime community as a whole. So welcome back to another news article. Continuing the coverage of Jump Festa announcements, we are talking about One Piece Remake now. Let’s get started!
What do we know about One Piece Remake?
Of course, this news comes to us courtesy of Jump Festa 2024. It was revealed that WIT Studio is working on a Remake titled “The One Piece” to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the anime. After the announcements, the official Twitter account for the anime posted a tweet saying that the remake will be “Starting from The East Blue Saga” so that probably means that we will get more than just the East Blue Saga down the line.
Yes, this IS being made for Netflix though. As much as that sucks, I am glad that a reputed studio like WIT is getting a crack at this remake. You can check out the teaser for the anime here.
Let’s now move on to
I mean, I am completely speechless at the moment. I cannot understate how much of a big deal this announcement is for the community in general. One Piece is one of the best shounen mangas and this new adaptation will expose a lot of new people to the series. And as a fan, that really makes me happy because most people are intimidated by the manga/anime’s length and don’t even give it a chance. This remake is a perfect opportunity to remedy that.
Add the fact that an amazing studio like WIT will be handling the remake, I cannot possibly be even more excited for it. I don’t know what to tell you, man, this is like Punk returning to WWE or Final Fantasy 7 getting a remake (back in the day) for me. That is how much of a big deal this announcement is. A certified Hell Froze Over moment.
That Is all for now
Sorry for going off at the end there. I just cannot contain my excitement. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!
