The movie is a retelling of the Drum Island arc with new music and animation. Vivi has been removed from the plot while both Nico Robin and Franky, who joined the crew after the Drum Island arc, have been added. The movie also has the Straw Hat's new ship, the Thousand Sunny. It has been stated that Oda will be creating a new character for this movie, Wapol's older brother, Mushul, who also appears to be a Devil Fruit user. (Source: Wikipedia)

I do like this arc. Not the best retelling but I enjoyed it.


It was like the Chopper Arc but all out of order.


A re-imagining of Chopper’s introductory arc. The animation at certain parts looks great (Luffy vs. Mushuluu) and the soundtrack is good.


A what if story that really did not add much to the series. Still fun though.


Probably one of the most moving backstories among the crew for me, in movie form. I cried. Nice.


The movie that confused the hell out of 12 year old me, spoiler, it isn’t canon



    Anime was a mistake
