One Piece Trailer Meets Reality: Netflix Corrects an All-Too-Familiar Error

3 min read

In an era where live-action adaptations of beloved series are becoming increasingly popular, even giants like Netflix can’t avoid the occasional oversight. The streaming giant, renowned for its meticulous production quality, recently found itself in a slightly embarrassing position after an astute One Piece fanbase pointed out an all-too-modern blunder in the trailer for their eagerly awaited live-action rendition of One Piece.

For those not in the loop, this faux pas took form as a seemingly innocuous smartwatch. Yes, you read that right – in a world swarming with magic, audacious pirates, and individuals endowed with spectacular abilities, a background character inadvertently showcased 21st-century technology. One Piece Netflix Fan, a user on X (formerly known as Twitter), shared an image comparison highlighting the scene before and after Netflix’s correction.

This wouldn’t be the first time viewers have noticed such anachronisms in their favorite shows. Cast your mind back to the widely discussed ‘Starbucks cup’ debacle of Game of Thrones or the unintentional iPhone cameo in The Walking Dead. Such moments, seemingly trivial, can shatter the suspension of disbelief and leave fans both amused and incredulous.

The gaffe in question appeared in a rather significant scene. As the King of Pirates, Gold Roger faced his fate, a bystander seemingly decided that the historic moment was the perfect time to check their step count or maybe a new notification. The incongruity of the setting paired with this modern gadget was undeniably jarring, prompting quick action from Netflix. The corrected trailer, sans smartwatch, has since been uploaded for fans to immerse themselves once again in the world Eiichiro Oda masterfully created.

One Piece has been captivating audiences since its manga debut in 1997, drawing in a substantial fan base. Its captivating story, led by the tenacious Monkey D. Luffy, has kept readers and viewers rapt for years. Luffy’s singular aim to earn the title of King of Pirates propels him and his motley crew of diverse characters on a thrilling quest. Notable figures that join his expedition include the formidable Roronoa Zoro, the culinary maestro Sanji, and the shrewd Nami. Their collective dream? To uncover the fabled treasure – the One Piece.

The live-action rendition of this tale is in the adept hands of showrunners Steve Maeda and Matt Owens. Having previously worked on acclaimed series like Pan Am, Conviction, Luke Cage, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and with stars such as Inaki Godoy, Langley Kirkwood, and Celeste Loots on board, the bar is set incredibly high.

While this hiccup may have given fans and critics a brief pause, the anticipation surrounding this adaptation hasn’t diminished. If anything, it has added another layer to the buzz and conversation around it. Such instances remind us that a dash of reality can find its way, even into the most magical worlds. Whether it’s a misplaced coffee cup or an errant smartwatch, these gaffes are testament to the fact that perfection is elusive, but also that the collective eagle eyes of fans miss nothing.

Fans should mark their calendars and gather the crew because One Piece is slated to drop anchor on Netflix on Aug. 31. Dive into a universe of unparalleled adventure, and here’s hoping there are no more surprise tech appearances!
