There are no fillers and even the movie and the OVAs are all canon. However, the OVA series adapts Part 3: Stardust Crusaders in an abridged manner, so you won’t be missing out on anything if you skip it. Similarly, the movie also summarises the first 9 episodes of Season 1.

History plays a crucial role, and to enjoy the latest parts to their fullest, it is important to know all that happened in the characters’ pasts.
