New images from the set of Netflix’s live-action One Piece adaptation have revealed yet another iconic ship. Thanks to this first look, fans have a glimpse at the ocean-faring restaurant the Baratie.
The Baratie was a restaurant founded by the former captain of the Cook Pirates, Zeff, and his adoptive son Sanji. The latter would meet the series protagonist Monkey D. Luffy on the ship and eventually join his crew.
As can be seen in the images below, the ship features an open-mouth fish design. It is still under construction based on the pictures, but it seems it may include a few design changes to match the more realistic look of the live-action adaptation.
