One Piece is set to end the long running story of Luffy and his crew of Straw Hat Pirates within the next five years when it comes to the anime and manga of the franchise, but the franchise is getting a big new entry in the future with a live action series produced for North America via the streaming service of Netflix and a creative mind behind the series has shared a unique take on the characters with the "Gucci Gang".
