On November 20, 2020, the film premiered in Japan and earned a box office gross of $78.5 million. It was initially scheduled to premiere on August 7, 2020, but was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The film follows Nobita as he manages to change his future, making Shizuka decide to marry him. Along the way, he decided to go back to the past to meet his grandmother. She died when Nobita was still in kindergarten, and he admired her so much. Stand by Me Doraemon 2 is filled with heartwarming moments, suspense, and adventure that the whole family would love!
Doraemon: Nobita's Little "Star Wars" 2021 will premiere in Japan on March 4, 2022. Its release was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This will be the 41st anime of the franchise.
This upcoming film is a remake of the 1985 anime film of the same name. The original Doraemon: Nobita's Little "Star Wars" movie premiered in some selected theaters in Japan from November 23 to December 2, 1985.
The film is directed by Susumu Yamaguchi, who also worked as a key animator for the previous Doraemon anime films. Yamaguchi was also the unit director for the Doraemon the Movie: Nobita's Chronicle of the Moon Exploration anime film and the director for Mobile Suit Gundam AGE.
