The real life Straw Hat Pirates are almost here, thanks to Eiichiro Oda and Netflix’s live-action adaptation of the hit anime series One Piece. The protagonists are already set, but what about the show’s antagonists?
For their first season, the production is bringing to life a One Piece ship—Alvida Pirates’ very own Miss Love Duck. The Alvida Pirates were the first enemy pirates that Luffy encountered in the anime.
All aboard Netflix live-action’s One Piece ship ‘Miss Love Duck’
Netflix is going all out for the One Piece live-action series, judging from their filming sets. The streaming and production giant built a life-sized version of the One Piece ship Miss Love Duck.
Netflix’s version of the Miss Love Duck seemed to nail every detail of the One Piece ship. Fans can spot the hearts on each of the sails, as well as the huge duck as its figurehead.
While the ship still looks incomplete from the fan video posted by Twitter user Bantu King, One Piece fans are already excited to see it in action.
Going Merry, another One Piece ship, has been spotted in the same filming set as Miss Love Duck.
The One Piece live-action series set is located inside Cape Town Film Studios in South Africa. Netflix is sparing no expensve for the beloved series, since Tomorrow Studios producer Marty Adelstein claimed that the “project could set a new record for the highest production cost in television drama history.”
Alvida’s Miss Love Duck is one of the earliest One Piece ships in the anime
Miss Love Duck is the first ship owned by the Alvida Pirates, led by the female pirate Alvida. Her trademark weapon is an iron mace, which she used to fight Luffy.
Alvida is very narcissistic and believes she is the most beautiful lady in all of the seven seas.
