If you’re looking for some insight into the production of the live-action One Piece series ahead of its premiere on August 31, Netflix came through with a video just for you. The new “Inside the Story” promo takes us behind the scenes with some comments from the showrunners and executive producers as well as the main cast members.

Check it out below while we wait for Luffy to Gum-Gum Punch his way to Netflix:

If you missed it, Luffy actor Iñaki Godoy recently visited the offices of One Piece publisher Shueisha.

We’ll have to wait to find out how Matt Owens and Steve Maeda’s One Piece performs in live-action form. Eiichiro Oda’s original manga is available in English through VIZ Media, which describes the epic yarn like so:

As a child, Monkey D. Luffy was inspired to become a pirate by listening to the tales of the buccaneer “Red-Haired” Shanks. But his life changed when Luffy accidentally ate the Gum-Gum Devil Fruit and gained the power to stretch like rubber…at the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, still vowing to become the king of the pirates, Luffy sets out on his adventure…one guy alone in a rowboat, in search of the legendary “One Piece,” said to be the greatest treasure in the world…
