The characters were very good and i like their personality as to different from other doraemon movie characters i have seen.

The soundtrack was so amazing overall and was probably the best soundtrack from a doraemon movie that i have seen.

The story honestly was not boring and i usually complain about the unrealistic scenes but this one was so good and totally worth it.

Although i only gave it an 8 it still great because some of the other ones were below average and rlly boring in the end and felt like they were desperately trying to drag the movie on.

Im so ...

My overall take: Well-structured film with one of the best-written Doraemon movie characters.

In this movie, Nobita switches lives with a prince from a Maya-esque civilization, who somehow looks just like him. This might have been the first Doraemon movie I ever watched. I remembered it as a good one, and I'd generally still agree with that assessment. That's not to say that one can't find holes in the narrative (why does Doraemon try attacking the villains' moving statues even after he's already realized they're illusions?), but I found it a well-crafted and enjoyable story overall.

Furthermore, Prince Tio may very well have the most compelling arc ...
