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 read more

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 read more

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 read more

Watch the anime instead. This is mostly opinions since i do have a grudge against chopper but he is a terrible character. The movie starts off with the strawhats from a few months in the future suddenly teleporting to drum island where the most annoying character in the world resides. At this time some of the strawhat crew who are there now ere not originally there so the creator decided to amke them do nothing but build snowmen the whole time. Only 3 of the strawhat members actually do anything this entire film but most of it is just Choppers horrible made backstory while the read more
