The official website for the 20th-anniversary film for Toei Animation's Ojamajo Doremi series, Majo Minarai wo Sagashite (Looking for Witch Apprentices) / Looking for Magical Doremi, has posted a 60-second "final" version trailer featuring the OP Theme song for the first TV series, "Ojamajo Carnival!!" In the end of the clip, the familiar six witch apprentices from the original series - Doremi, Hazuki, Aiko, Onpu, Momoko, and Pop - finally appear.
The 91-minute all-new feature film is co-directed by the TV anime first season's series director Junichi Sato and Yu Kamatani (ONE PIECE STAMPEDE assistant director). 24-year-old fashion model/actress Aoi Morikawa voices Mire, while 28-year-old ex-Nogizaka46 member Rena Matsui and 25-year-old Momoiro Clover Z member Kanako Momota are cast as Sora and Reika, respectively.
Its story focuses on three women in their twenties: 27-year-old Mire Yoshizuki (office worker who was a returnee), 22-year-old Sora Nagase (university student who wishes to be a teacher), and 20-year-old Reika Kawatani (part-time worker). The three, who grew up watching the Ojamajo Doremi anime, now know the magic doesn't exist in reality. But through a journey to visit the places related to the anime, they look for the important things that they forgot as growing up as an adult.
As reported, the film has been invited by the 33rd Tokyo International Film Festival as a special screening feature, prior to its theatrical release in Japan on November 13. It is set to be screened at EX Theater Roppongi in Tokyo at 15:15 on November 3, 2020 (JST). The film's two co-directors and three main voice cast members will also join its stage greeting.
