The following press notes are courtesy of international sales agent, Lucky Red... Story Doraemon, the sympathetic and protective cat robot from the 22nd century created by Fujiko f. Fujio, who has entertained both young and old since 1969 with manga, anime series, and movies, now performs for the first time on the big screen in a spectacular stereoscopic 3D. The story`s protagonist is Nobita, a 10 year-old boy destined for a future of failure due to his sluggish, indolent nature. To rescue him from that life comes Doraemon, a sort of "big brother" to help defend Nobita against the bullies Gian and Suneo and teach him to become a sensible kid and a responsible adult. To achieve this aim, Doraemon uses a series of incredible and magical gadgets which will take the blue cat and little Nobita into the future to change a fate that looks none-too-happy... Will Nobita finally succeed in winning the heart of Shizuka, the sweet friend he has always loved, and stop being influenced by Gian and Suneo? This is a thrilling journey in time, full of surprises that won`t disappoint Doraemon fans old and new.
