Meet Iñaki Godoy, Luffy's actor from Netflix's One Piece live-action
Talk of an imminent trailer for Netflix’s One Piece live-action is afoot, and before we get our first look, we introduce you to Luffy actor, Iñaki Godoy, and the rest of the adaptation’s cast.
The budget of Netflix’s adaptation has been compared to that of a Marvel film, like Avengers: Endgame, which puts the show’s scale into perspective.
Developed by Matt Owens and Steven Maeda for Netflix and based on the ongoing 1997 Japanese manga series of the same name by Eiichiro Oda, One Piece is a live-action adaptation following the Straw Hat Pirates and their mission to discover the legendary “One Piece” treasure.

Godoy has also starred in shows Go Youth! playing Pedro and Who killed Sara? playing Bruno, in addition to the 2022 shows, The Imperfects and MexZombies.
The young actor is confirmed to be in all ten episodes of Netflix’s One Piece adaptation, playing protagonist Monkey D. Luffy.
On Instagram, Godoy has accumulated a healthy band of 243k followers and is currently using his posts to promote the One Piece live-action as well as his personal life.
