Vietnamese movie distributor Lotte Cinema introduced on Wednesday that it’s going to display screen the Doraemon: Nobita’s Little “Star Wars” 2021 anime movie in Vietnam starting on May 27.

The movie opened in Japan on March 4 after a yearlong delay resulting from COVID-19. It ranked at #1 in its opening weekend, and bought 350,000 tickets for 440 million yen (about US$3.81 million) in its first three days.

Doraemon: Nobita’s Little “Star Wars” 2021 is the forty first movie in the Doraemon franchise. The movie is a remake of the 1985 Doraemon movie of the identical title.

Susumu Yamaguchi — a key animator on many earlier Doraemon films, unit director of Doraemon the Movie: Nobita’s (*27*) of the Moon Exploration, and the director of Mobile Suit Gundam AGE — directed the brand new movie. Dai Sato (Eureka Seven, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Listeners) penned the script. Official HiGE DANdism created the theme track “Universe” particularly for the movie. Sibling folks duo Billy BanBan carried out the insert track “Kokoro Arigatō” (Thank You for the Heart). Shirogumi, the 3D CG studio behind the manufacturing of the Stand By Me Doraemon movies, dealt with the CG for the spaceships in the movie.
