In an interview with GameSpot, Jaco Snyman, the head of prosthetics for One Piece Live Action, hinted at their approach to Tony Tony Chopper’s design in the live action.
Snyman shared his excitement to work on Tony Tony Chopper’s look in live action. He stated that he hopes to be able to use the same approach they took for Arlong in season 1.

The interview was originally recorded prior to August 31, i.e., the release of Season 1, and thus not much was shared.
Snyman’s comment on Chopper’s look was posted on September 20, five days after Netflix and Eiichiro Oda’s announment about Season 2.
One Piece Live-Action is available to watch on Netflix and follows the manga until Arlong Park.
Season 2 will most likely start with the crew’s visit to Loughtown and cover the Drum Island, where Chopper was first introduced in the manga and anime.
