Every Netflix Live-Action Anime Adaptation In Development

After the commercial success of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, it was inevitable that more live-action Pokémon stories would come to the big and small screen. The Ryan Reynolds-led movie is said to have a sequel in the works; however, Netflix also has its own live-action Pokémon on the horizon. Netflix has become the home to several series of Pokémon anime in recent years, with Pokémon Indigo League and Pokémon Master Journeys available to watch on the streamer. The series was announced in 2021 but very little information is available about its development. The development of a Pokémon series poses an interesting challenge for Netflix, which must simultaneously please its young audience, and the now-adult millenials that loved it in their childhood and still hold a fondness for it. The Pokémon company has had a similar dilemma when producing their games, with elder gamers crying out for a more mature entry into the franchise. Whether Netflix nails the landing with the Pokémon show or not, Pokémon‘s gigantic pull makes this adaptation the one with the best chance of success and renewal. Alongside Netflix’s live-action Pokémon series, a live-action Pokémon film has also been rumored.

One Piece

One Piece mangaka (artist) Eiichiro Oda announced back in 2017 that Netflix would oversee the transformation of Luffy and his misfit pirate crew into a live-action series. Although there has been no release date for Netflix’s One Piece season 1, production began in September 2021. The first season will feature 10 episodes, and the main cast has also been revealed. Making their way onto the Grand Line is Iñaki Godoy as the main protagonist Monkey D. Luffy, Mackenyu Arata as the swordsman Roronoa Zoro, Emily Rudd as the Straw Hat’s navigator Nami, Jacob Romero Gibson as Usopp, the Straw Hats’ sniper and compulsive liar, and rounding off the original Straw Hat crew is Taz Skylar as Sanji.

The cast of Netflix’s One Piece certainly looks the part, and Oda’s involvement in the project as an executive producer will calm the worries of portions of the One Piece fandom. Nonetheless, Netflix has its work cut out adapting the beloved manga and anime series, which is still ongoing after over 20 years. One Piece‘s pacing and art style are problems that will need to be addressed when translating the series into live-action. However, if Netflix’s One Piece remains faithful to the spirit of the source material, it should appease current viewers, and could be one of the streamer’s larger hits in its stable of live-action anime adaptations.

Avatar: The Last Airbender

While the original Avatar: The Last Airbender is technically not an anime since the show was produced in the United States rather than Japan, it is still an exciting adaptation of a hugely popular animated series that shares many qualities with typical shonen anime shows. Originally created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Brian Konietzko for Nickelodeon, Avatar: The Last Airbender is generally considered one of the greatest animated shows of all time. It follows the titular Avatar, Aang, who awakens from an iceberg after 100 years to find the world in turmoil after the Fire Nation declared war against the Earth, Water, and Air Nations. Netflix’s adaptation is supposedly covering much of the original story. However, after the departure of Avatar‘s original creators from Netflix’s live-action remake, it appears that some changes will be made from the original.

Netflix’s Avatar is not the first attempt to render the series into live-action, after M. Night Shymalan’s disastrous 2010 movie Avatar: The Last Airbender. One way that Netflix’s series has already bettered Shymalan’s movie is through its casting. While Shymalan’s movie was accused of whitewashing, for its live-action Avatar, Netflix has cast actors mainly from Asian or Indigenous backgrounds to better reflect the spirit and influences of the original series. Netflix certainly considers Avatar a sure-fire hit, as it is already one of the platform’s most expensive shows, with each episode costing roughly $15 million. In terms of episodes, Avatar season 1 will consist of eight hour-long episodes, suggesting that season 1 will cover most, if not all, of the events of the first season of the animated show. Although Avatar continues to cast new actors for the show, it’s currently filming in Vancouver, and filming is expected to continue until June 2022. A release date is yet to be unveiled, but it’s likely that Netflix will release Avatar: The Last Airbender sometime in 2023.

Sword Art Online

The idea of a live-action remake of Sword Art Online has been talked about for several years, and in February 2018 it was reported that Netflix was in charge of the series. Even before Netflix, Skydance Productions flirted with the idea of transforming the Sword Art Online light novels into a live-action television series. Sword Art Online stems from humble beginnings, as the novel series was self-published by author Reki Kawahara before the series boomed in popularity and spawned numerous video games, anime series, and multiple manga adaptations. Despite the isekai anime’s popularity, no details have been released about Netflix’s adaptation in several years. As it stands, any live-action series of Sword Art Online appears to linger in development hell and may never see the light of day.

Yu Yu Hakusho

One series that will release in 2023 is Netflix’s live-action remake of Yu Yu Hakusho. The Yu Yu Hakusho anime is considered one of the shonen greats, and it was adapted from the manga by Yoshihiro Togashi, who also created the equally popular Hunter x Hunter. Should Netflix’s live-action version follow the same story, it will center on Yusuke Urameshi, a young delinquent who sacrifices himself for a young child. Shocked by his act of altruism, the Spirit World gives Yusuke a second chance in the world of the living, where he becomes a detective of spirits and the paranormal. Takumi Kitamura, who also appeared in the live-action Tokyo Revengers movie, will play the lead role. Although Netflix has not announced this, Kitamura has been seen in set photos wearing Yusuke’s iconic green outfit. Production seemingly began in Japan in July 2021, however, Netflix has remained quiet about the development of Yu Yu Hakusho.

Alice in Borderland Season 2

The executive producer of Netflix’s Yu Yu Hakusho, Kazutaka Sakamoto, is also the executive producer of Netflix’s hit Alice in Borderland. Alice in Borderland is an adaptation of Haro Aso’s manga of the same name, the manga also spawned a three-episode anime series that was aired between 2014 and 2015. Although Alice in Borderland‘s anime may not be widely known within the anime community, especially in comparison to Pokémon and One Piece, Netflix’s first season of Alice in Borderland was successful enough to warrant another season. The second season of Alice in Borderland is set to release in December 2022, and Sakamoto’s involvement in both Alice in Borderland and Yu Yu Hakusho may explain why audiences will have to wait so long to watch the latter. Alice in Borderland season 1 was seen in over 18 million households in its first 28 days of release, according to Netflix. This success demonstrates that there is potential for manga and anime adaptations to transcend borders and resonate with wider audiences, thus creating hope for Netflix’s other live-action anime adaptations.
