Netflix’s live-action One Piece series has reportedly found its Dragon. According to the One Piece Netflix Fan account, actor Dean Damonse has been tapped to play the leader of the Revolutionary Army, Monkey D. Dragon.
First introduced in the Loguetown Arc, Dragon is the father of Monkey D. Luffy and the son of the Marine vice admiral, Monkey D. Garp. The leader of the Revolutionary Army, Dragon, has been working to overthrow the World Government and is labeled as the World’s Worst Criminal.
