Shinnosuke Nohara, the rambunctious 5 year old protagonist of the Crayon Shin-chan manga and TV anime, is about to have a close encounter of the 3rd kind with an upcoming theatrical film that will celebrate 25 years of Crayon Shin-chan in animated form.
The new movie is entitled Eiga Crayon Shin-chan: Shuurei!! Uchuu-jin Shiriri ("Crayon Shin-chan the Movie: Invasion!! The Alien Shiriri"). It marks the 25th entry in the Crayon Shin-chan animated theatrical film series, which began in 1993 with Crayon Shin-chan: Action Kamen vs Leotard Devil.
Eiga Crayon Shin-chan Shuurei!! Uchuu-jin Shiriri hits Japanese theaters on April 15, 2017.
