It has already been confirmed that One Piece is finally in production and the cast members have been sharing some awesome updates on the live-action series. However, there's one actor who has yet to join them and it just happens to be the same guy who will be playing the perpetually lost Roronoa Zoro. Luckily, things have changed as Mackenyu Arata confirmed he has found the set of the Netflix series in a new photo!
Mackenyu has shared the set photo on his official social media accounts, confirming that he is finally ready to start filming scenes as Zoro. Although the image simply shows his chair, it's enough to get fans hyped up for the One Piece series.
Interestingly, fans are not the only ones who were delighted that Mackenyu is finally ready to work on One Piece. His own co-stars flooded the comments on his Instagram post, welcoming the Rurouni Kenshin: The Final actor on the set.
It's great to know that Mackenyu will begin filming for One Piece this week after a long wait (other cast members had started working last week). Of course, it's possible that the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable Chapter I star simply had a different schedule but that hasn't stopped fans from claiming he got lost on his way to the set, just like Zoro.
Last year, there were rumors that Mackenyu is being considered for the role of Zoro in the live-action Netflix show. However, it wasn't until November that the Pacific Rim: Uprising star was confirmed along with the rest of the cast.
One Piece will also star Iñaki Godoy as Monkey D. Luffy, Emily Rudd as Nami, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp, and Taz Skylar as Sanji. The series is currently in production and has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
