So, either the location has to be shifted or wait for the international flights to operate. Anyway, the pandemic has delayed the live-action series, and there is nothing one can do about it.

The production process is way bigger than snowpiercer, and this is going to take more time. Mary Adelstein is expecting that producing a live-action of one piece will be a humungous task. She was associated with snowpiercer too, so she has a lot of experience with this.
This time things are going to be a bit different for Mary Adelstein, and this is something which is going to affect the filming process too.

Oda-sensei seems to be invested a lot in the series, and he is very particular about the minute details being presented in the series.
