Avid One Piece fans will not have second thoughts about watching One Piece movies.

However, for those who just want to see the essential parts of the story and skip fillers, note that there are some movies that are skippable and some that aren't.

Below are the essential movies that are connected to the main arc:

Where Does the One Piece Live-Action Series Fit in the Timeline?

You can watch the One-Piece live-action series on Netflix, which starts in the Romance Dawn arc and ends in the Arlong Park arc within the East Blue Saga. It has a total of eight episodes, with a runtime of almost an hour per episode.

This means you can skip episodes 1 to 44 in the anime, but bear in mind that there are significant changes in the live-action that you should know.

For instance, Garp, along with Koby and Helmeppo had a reunion with Luffy and the gang after they took down Arlong, which did not happen in the anime (at least in the East Blue Saga).
