Yesterday, it was announced that the 36th Doraemon
movie, titled "Stand by Me Doraemon," will be the first full-length 3DCG movie for the series and will be released next summer. While the story will be original, it will be based on famous scenes from the manga including "Mirai no Kuni kara Harubaru to" (Coming a Long Way from Future Land), "Sayounara, Doraemon" (Goodbye, Doraemon), and "Nobita no Kekkon Zenya" (One Night Prior to Nobita's Wedding Day). Yamazaki Takashi
and Yagi Ryuuichi are directing the film. They have stated that the choice of 3DCG will allow viewers to really feel Doraemon's secret tools and that the movie will be for all Doraemon fans, both young and old. This movie also celebrates 80th anniversary of birth of Fujiko F. Fujio
, the creator of Doraemon, next year.
