The trailer for the film, which hits Japanese theaters August 2, was released alongside a cast list, which includes:

Takeru Sato (Rurouni Kenshin)

The team behind the film is the same as that of the CG-animated Doraemon film released in 2014. That includes Takashi Yamazaki (Parasyte), who’s working as chief director and screenwriter, and Makoto Hanafusa, who is credited as director.

The music will be composed by Koichi Sugiyama, the main composer of the Dragon Quest franchise (who also composed the music for the original Dragon Quest V).

Dragon Quest V was first released on Super Famicom and is now available on several platforms, including smartphones and Nintendo DS. Here’s a description of the latter:
