As Nami has fallen seriously ill, the Straw Hats head to Drum Island in search of a doctor. However, they learn that there is only one doctor left on the island, the reclusive Dr. Kureha who currently resides at the top of a mountain. With a sick Nami in tow, Monkey D. Luffy and Sanji set out on an arduous journey to seek her help.

Meanwhile, the return of Wapol—Drum Island's former king—and his brother spells trouble for the island's inhabitants. As the one responsible for the current lack of doctors, Wapol has finally returned to take back his position as the people's despot and absolute ruler.

With the help of new allies like the half-human reindeer Chopper Tony Tony, the Straw Hat Crew must overcome all the obstacles in its way to save Nami's life and stop Wapol from plunging Drum Island back into tyranny.

After seeing the preview for this movie, I was eager to watch it! The summary says it all, the movie is basically a re-make of the show's "Drum Island arc" (episodes 78 - 91) where Chopper joins the Straw Hat Pirates.

In the original arc, we have only 5 of the main characters (Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Sanji and Usopp), and in this movie the creators advertised the fact that Franky and Robin would be in it, which most people will know that they don't join the Straw Hats until much later. I thought that would very interesting to see how the changes would be now ...

Mixed Feelings
When looking at the score and reviews of this movie I was surprised to see it was mostly positive. This movie is a retelling of the Drum Island Arc and I don't have a problem with retellings and remakes if they Improve on or add something to the original work, however this movie is far inferior to the original.

The timeline is different in this movie then the original and based on certain aspects and characters that appear it would seem that this movie takes place after Water 7 and CP9, which is when I believe the art and animation of One Piece was at ...

I just watched One Piece Movie 9 and I found quite perfect!

Chopper is one of my favourite Strawhat and a movie dedicated to Chopper's past is made me happy.

In anime, Drum Kingdom Arc was above average for me cause of its art and sound. That situation gives movie +10 points. Also including some new Strawhat to this arc (Franky, Robin) made movie excellent, I think. About other characters, all was the same. Luffy was still Luffy (and baka as always :>)

Vivi's absence was a bit sad but I didn't feel it too much while watching.

Story was really great and it's really worth watch it. Maybe ...
