Franchise's 40th feature film will feature completely original story and dino designs
Doraemon is celebrating 40 years of feature films with a throwback to where it all began: Nobita and dinosaurs.
The 2020 film Doraemon the Movie: Nobita's New Dinosaur will be the 40th film in the franchise. The kids' classic first made its way to the big screen with 1980's Nobita's Dinosaur. But despite the obvious parallels, director Kazuaki Imai says the new movie will have nothing to do with the 1980 film or its 2006 remake, featuring an entirely new story and new dinosaur designs.
Check out the first teaser for the upcoming film:
A teaser poster has also been released, along with a graphic showing all 40 film posters over the years:
August 2019 also happens to mark the 50th anniversary of the Doraemon manga, making the next several months a banner time for the earless robot cat.
Doraemon the Movie: Nobita's New Dinosaur is set to premiere in March of 2020.
