One Piece Series Poster Makes It Loud & Clear: The Pirates Are Coming!

With the streaming series hitting Netflix on August 31st, a new key art poster for One Piece definitely gets its point across in a big way.

On Monday, it was all about going behind the scenes of Netflix, Tomorrow Studios (Netflix's Cowboy Bebop, TNT's Snowpiercer) & publisher Shueisha's live-action series take on author Eiichiro Oda's manga One Piece (more on that in a minute). But today, we're back to passing along more really cool key art for the streaming series. And with only nine days to go, it's all about showing off the action, adventure & intrigue that awaits viewers because… "THE PIRATES ARE COMING"!

Earlier this week, fans were treated to a behind-the-scenes featurette giving us a chance to see how the classic made the jump from ink to live-action. The streamer has never-before-seen interviews with the cast and the creative team (done well before the SAG-AFTRA & WGA strikes) discussing bringing Oda's iconic work in a brand new & exciting way, what went into finding the perfect cast, the impressive stunt coordination that we'll see this season, and much more.

Back on "'One Piece' Day," fans were able to check in with Oda, who offered his thoughts on the upcoming series. In the following beautiful-looking two-piece letter to the fans, Oda makes it clear right in the opening that "no compromises" were made in bringing the series to life. From there, the franchise creator reveals just how much creative say he had on the production, how the folks working on the series are "'One Piece' superfans," and how he's looking forward to hearing from the fans:
