The scene that we are talking about is none other than Luffy’s backstory when he turns 17 and sails out to begin his adventure and encounters a sea monster.

Many fans wonder why they skipped such a fantastic scene, while others believe the live-action characters are weaker than in their anime version.

This scene had importance in the story as it showed the strength of Luffy, how confident he was about his dreams, and that he would not stop for any opponent who wished to defy his freedom.
