Doraemon: Nobita's Little Star Wars 2021 Film Postponed to Spring 2022

The official website for the Doraemon: Nobita's Little "Star Wars" 2021 anime film announced on Friday that it has been postponed until spring 2022 due to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The film was originally scheduled to open on March 5, but the staff announced in January that it would be delayed to an unspecified date.

FuRyu also confirmed in January that its Nintendo Switch game based on the anime film would be delayed until a later date. The party game was supposed to be released on March 5th, along with the film. The game's website does not currently list a release date.

Doraemon: Nobita's Little "Star Wars" 2021 is the 41st Doraemon film. The film is a remake of the same-named Doraemon film from 1985.

Susumu Yamaguchi, who was a key animator on many previous Doraemon films, as well as the unit director of Doraemon the Movie: Nobita's Chronicle of the Moon Exploration and the director of Mobile Suit Gundam AGE, will direct the new film. The script is being written by Dai Sato (Eureka Seven, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Listeners). The film's theme song, "Universe," was written specifically for the film by HiGE DANdism. Shirogumi, the 3D CG studio behind the Stand By Me Doraemon films, will handle the CG for the film's spaceships.
