It is now certain that the first official shot of One Piece Live action , the awaited Netflix series will be shown during the Tudum , which can be followed live on  on June 17th from 10.30pm .

It is speculated that it could be a teaser trailer that should offer the first look at the performers in costume, so far only seen from behind in the posters.

But that is not all.

As we know , One Piece Day 2023 will take place on July 21 and 22 at Tokyo Big Sight in Tokyo .

The official website reports that Road to Gear 5 Exhibition will be held on the first day , dedicated to Luffy’s battles before arriving at the Gear 5. The anime keyframes, character studies, storyboards, videos and much more will be shown

On the second day the One Piece Live Action Special Exhibition will be held , at the moment we don’t know what will be shown, but given the previous ones it could be the same shot of the Tudum , subtitled in Japanese.
