Netflix’s Live-Action ‘One Piece’ Teases Chopper and Mr. 3 for Season 2!

Netflix's Live-Action 'One Piece' Teases Chopper and Mr. 3 for Season 2!

Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga became a massive hit and is still regarded as the best live-action adaptation of an anime to date. The series was extremely successful and its renewal for a second season was more or less a sure thing. At this point in time, we know that the production of the second season is heavily underway and that the season will be released sometime in 2025, which was also expected. But, while we don’t have too many information at this moment, the production is releasing some teasers that have fans excited, as they are foreshadowing the appearances of some major characters!

The live-action One Piece series premiered on August 31, 2023, on Netflix and currently has just eight episodes. The second season is currently in production and will be released next year, continuing the story of Luffy and his friends, as the crew is going to face new enemies and explore new locations.

We know that the main cast members from Season 1 are set to return, but which new characters are going to be included in Season 2 remains unknown at this point, although we have two teasers that seemingly confirm the appearances of one major protagonist, as well as a significant villain for Season 2. First, check out this video:

This is a relatively old video message from Oda-sensei, but in it, the mangaka teases the appearance of “a great doctor” in Season 2, and we know whom he is referring to. Namely, the reindeer who ate the Hito Hito no Mi and became humanoid, Tony Tony Chopper, is a doctor and is – as fans know – a major member of Luffy’s crew. As things stand, there are plans to include Chopper in the second season, which is certainly a great thing if you ask us.

But, moving on to more recent news, a video of Iñaki Godoy was also recently released, and before we elaborate, please, check it out:

This video was released as a promo video for Luffy’s birthday, since Godoy is playing Luffy in the live-action version, but that is not the detail we want to point out. Namely, if you check out the candle on the cake, you will see that it looks identical to the haircut of a villain from the series, only smaller:

Galdino, also known as Mr. 3, is an important member of Sir Crocodile’s Baroque Works and knowing the plot progression of the series, he could very well appear in the second season. Of course, the candle might just be a nod to the character and not a tease, but we cannot know any of that yet.

No official confirmation has been given as of the time of writing, so please consider these two videos as rumors and teasers rather than official confirmations, although they do seem very plausible. Of course, we are going to keep following up on these rumors and as soon as we have any official updates, we are going to report them to you. This is why you should definitely keep following us if you want to know more about the series, its development and all the relevant updates regarding its cast and crew. This is all that we have for you today!
