Doraemon is Japan’s popular robotic alien cat anime that most, if not all, of us have heard of. The hugely popular franchise will soon see the remake of the 1989 Doraemon hit classic movie “Eiga Doraemon: Shin Nobita no Nihon Tanjo,” which is known in English as “Doraemon the Movie: New Nobita and the Birth of Japan.” This remake was made in order to retell a classic story using the latest technology. Read on for more details.
The plot of “Doraemon the Movie: New Nobita and the Birth of Japan” revolves around Nobita running away from home. His action stemmed from the fact that he was always scolded both at home and in school. In addition to this, Gian, Shizuka, and Suneo (Nobita’s friends) also ran away from home with each holding a different kind of reason for doing so. Since Japan is a very crowded place in the present times, the four friends along with Doraemon, traveled back to the time when Japan just started to emerge in the world 70,000 years ago.
Going along with the studio’s spring time tradition, the studio announced that this latest movie shall be released sometime on March 2016.
“The original film boasts the largest theatregoing audience in the Doraemon film franchise, with 4.2 million tickets sold” reported by Anime News Network.
In other related news, an art exhibit of the “Nobita and the Birth of Japan” and the “a Journey Through Space-Time” has already begun at the Fujiko F. Fujio Museum in Kawasaki. The exhibit started last July 10, 2015 and shall continue till mid June 2016.
Some of the works exhibited are the keyframes from Nobita and the Birth of Japan. Also, there are time machine-themed artworks; specifically the one-way time machine in “Kiteretsu Daihyakka” (Kiteretsu Encyclopedia), the one from Perman, and the time machine used in “Pokonyan!”
