The best-selling manga comic One Piece is setting sail to Netflix in the form of a 10-episode, live-action series.

One Piece is the story of pirate boy Monkey D. Luffy, who is in search of the greatest treasure in order to become the next Pirate King. After accidentally eating a Devil Fruit, Luffy’s body gains elastic, rubbery properties.

A One Piece anime series has been around since 1999, and it’s still running with more than 900 episodes to date. But Netflix is changing course by replicating the Straw Hat Pirates as live-action characters.

All we can say is, good luck recreating this.
