Back in January, the staff of the next Doraemon movie—Doraemon: Nobita’s Little Star Wars 2021—announced that the film wouldn’t make its March 5 release date. After being delayed to an unspecified time, the film has now been moved to a planned spring 2022 premiere due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The same goes for the Switch game adaptation, which was supposed to launch alongside the movie in March. FuRyu has yet to give that one a new release date.
Nobita’s Little Star Wars 2021 is the 41st film in the series and serves up a remake of 1985’s Nobita’s Little Star Wars feature. Susumu Yamaguchi (Doraemon key animator, Mobile Suit Gundam AGE director) is at the helm for this one, with Dai Sato (Eureka Seven) on the script.
