The video kicks off with a greeting from Godoy, Maeda and Owens, who reveal that they are currently in production in South Africa. They also share glimpses of the concept art of several iconic ships that fans have come to expect from the live-action series.

The video then transitions to a time-lapse of a life-sized set of the famed Baratie bar being constructed, along with Arlong’s map room and a very quick look at the Miss Love Duck ship.

Netflix has also announced the addition of six new cast members for the show. Alexander Maniatis (Warrior) will play Klahadore, Steven Ward (The Day We Didn’t Meet) will portray Mihawk, Craig Fairbrass (For Queen and Country) will play Chef Zeff.
