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

I watched all the one piece movies in the past before I picked up this movie and the arabasta one. Both are recaps mostly, but this movie is considerably better. I thought this movie did a even better job at telling chopper's story than the tv series. I rewatched one piece plenty of times, but every time, I couldn't really get into this story arc that much. Don't get me wrong, I love Chopper and how Luffy invited him to be his nakama. The background story about chopper is also very touching. But this is probably the only main arc where luffy is the only read more
