Is it necessary to watch all One Piece movies in order?
Technically, none of the films are considered canon. All of them have nothing to do with the manga’s story. Strong World is an exception in that the main villain appears in the manga storyline, but the event itself does not. Because the stories are not spoiled for you, you can watch them whenever and wherever you want.
It can only be “spoilt” if new characters join the crew later on or if something happens in the manga already (Heart of Gold movie is an example of this).
It’s fine to watch them in any order, but because joining characters can change the experience, you might want to start at the beginning.
