Doraemon: Nobita’s Little Star Wars 2021, the next 41st feature film in the Doraemon anime franchise based on Fujiko F. Fujio’s sci-fi manga for children, is officially set for a release in Japan on March 5, 2021. As the title suggests, this is a remake of the 1985 film Doraemon: Nobita’s Little Star Wars.
Susumu Yamaguchi, who directed the four Sergent Keroro films from 2007 to 2010, is attached to direct on a screenplay by Dai Sato (Eureka Seven). An internationally acclaimed CG production company Shirogumi, which has been also involved in the STAND BY ME Doraemon 3DCG series, cooperates in the production.
And a four-member Japanese rock band Official HIGE DANdism provides a newly-written theme song “Universe” for the film. You check the song in a 90-second first trailer below.
One day during summer vacation, a palm-sized alien named Papi appears from a small rocket that Nobita picks up. He is the president of Pirika, a small planet in outer space, and has come to Earth to escape the rebels. Doraemon and his friends are puzzled by Papi’s small size, but as they play together using the secret tool “Small Light”, they gradually become friends. However, a whale-shaped space battleship comes to earth and attacks Doraemon, Nobita and the others in order to capture Papi. Feeling responsible for getting everyone involved, Papi tries to stand up to the rebels. Doraemon and his friends leave for the planet Pirica to protect their dear friend and his home.
