The One Piece: Remake Anime Series Announced
If you are an ardent follower of different kinds of anime, you must already know how magnificent any anime series produced by the WIT Studio is! The OG seasons of Attack on Titan and Vinland Saga were produced by WIT before MAPPA Studios took over. Moreover, the fan-favorite comedy series Spy x Family is also currently made by the same studios.
So, the One Piece anime remake is indeed a ground-breaking announcement, and one of the best anime studios in Japan, WIT Studio, will be taking the mantle to deliver the remake titled “THE ONE PIECE” for the present and future generations. It should also be noted that Netflix will be distributing the remake anime, and thus, it will be released only on their streaming platform.
Furthermore, the remake will start from scratch, as the production team at WIT has decided to start adapting the manga from the very start, that is from East Blue Saga. The East Blue Saga will feature some of the best One Piece arcs, from the Romance Dawn Arc to the Loguetown Arc. You can check out the announcement video here:

After thinking through many concerns before taking on this new adventure, I decided to discuss it with everyone and take a stand. ONE PIECE is an anime with over 1000 episodes created by everyone at Toei Animation. I am humbled by the weight of our history and the prospect of charting a new trajectory.
Furthermore, Wada added, “We aim to electrify people all over the world by carefully depicting the challenges of pursuing dreams, friendship with friends, and hope for the future, as depicted by Eiichiro Oda. In order to deliver this work to every corner of the world, we still need the help of all creators. Would you like to participate in this project and engrave your name on the film? WIT STUDIO is looking forward to your participation!!”
