What Makes a Movie Canon?

What Makes a Movie Canon?

Before we go over which One Piece movies are canon, you need to understand what is considered “canon.” Typically, movies that are based on the manga are canon to the storyline.

This means the movie adapts the events from the manga, which would otherwise be animated as a separate season or arc.

There are also movies that are “close-canon.” These movies are not canon per se, but the author of the manga worked on the story or character design. This would make it kind of a part of the storyline.

Now, let’s talk about which One Piece movies are canon and which are not.

When it comes to One Piece films, most of them are either non-canon or close-canon. But none of them are actual canon stories from the manga.

There are 18 movies about One Piece so far in 2023, but not one of them is canonical. Some, though, are very much connected to the manga or anime.

Parts of the stories in One Piece the Movie: Episode of Arabasta: The Desert Princess and the Pirates and Parts of One Piece: Episode of Chopper Plus: Bloom in Winter, Miracle Sakura come straight from the manga. Retelling the Arabasta Arc is what the first one does, and the second one is mostly a redo of the Drum Island Arc.

Eiichiro Oda, who made One Piece, is also the chief producer of One Piece Film: Strong World, and he wrote the story for it. Oda is also in charge of making One Piece Film: Z, One Piece Film: Gold, One Piece Film: Stampede, and One Piece Film: Red.

List Of One Piece Movies Related To The Manga

Like I said before, these are close-canonical movies in which the author, Eiichiro Oda, was involved. Below is the list of One Piece films that Oda himself wrote or produced:

  • One Piece Film: Strong World
  • One Piece Film: Z
  • One Piece Film: Gold
  • One Piece: Stampede
  • One Piece Film: Red

Even though Oda worked on One Piece Film: Red, the story and growth aren’t as good. There is also a lot of music in the movie, which makes it seem more like an idol show. The fight scenes are great, and you can even catch a glimpse of Luffy’s Gear 5. If you want to add more songs to your anime playlist, you should watch this. If not, you can skip this one.

Regardless, the above One Piece movies are canon in the sense that the author worked on their stories and production. The characters shown in these movies are the ones from the manga. For example, characters like Shikki and Uta are canon. These movies shed some light on their backstories.

Should I watch the One Piece movies?

Now you know which One Piece movies are canon and worth watching. However, should you really watch them? Or can you skip them?

In a technical sense, none of the One Piece films are necessary for the story of the manga and anime. So, you can skip them completely.

There are side stories in the One Piece movies that can be watched on their own or in addition to the main story. If you want to see more experiences with the well-known Straw Hat crew, you should check out the movies.

It should also be noted that none of the movies are connected to one another. This means you do not have to follow any specific order to watch them.

However, the newer movies have new crew members and fighting techniques compared to the old ones. So, watching movies according to their release dates is always recommended.

That’s it for this post! You just learned which One Piece movies are canon and worth watching. I’ll keep this post updated whenever a new film in the franchise drops!
