The movie, directed by Takashi Yamazaki and Ryuichi Yagi, is said to be the final installment of the series. It will focus on Doraemon leaving and Nobita dealing with the loss. Seems like a lot of tearjerker vibes from our favorite robot cat so be prepared with your tissues. I know there’s a bit of Nobita in all of us.
Doraemon 3D premiered in Japan on August 8 and earned 3.27 billion yen in its first 10 day run.
