Stand By Me Doraemon Opens in Cinemas Today

Doraemon, the adorable, time travelling, gadget wielding robotic cat will conquer the Philippine cinemas today through its very first 3DCG animation - Stand by Me Doraemon.

Directed by Takashi Yamazaki and Ryuichi Yagi, Stand By Me Doraemon combines some of the greatest episodes of the Doraemon series with some additional elements to create a new but nostalgic story.  The movie takes us to the suburbs of Tokyo where a 10-year-old boy named Nobita lives.   One day, a boy appears in front of him, claiming that he is Sewashi Nobi, Nobita's descendant of four generations later from the 22nd century.  With him is a 22nd century cat-type robot named Doraemon who helps people with its secret gadgets.  Sewashi says that his family is suffering because of Nobita's current miserable life due to bullying.  So in order to change this disastrous future, he will leave Doraemon with Nobita to serve as his caretaker.  Doraemon has a pocket from which he produces gadgets, medicines, and tools from the future.  Doraemon must see to it that Nobita can already stand up for himself and live happily before Doraemon can go back to the future. 

The story of their friendship is a real tearjerker. 

A unique filming technique was used for this award-winning movie.  The creators said, "Unlike the usual method of post scoring, dialogues and music/songs are recorded before filming.  For this movie, sounds, mouth movements, expressions, and the character movements are made after the voice actors record their parts.  Therefore, there is no discomfort between the sound and the animation.  Though it is animation, it has a feeling of a live-action film." 

Winner of "Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year" at the 38th Japan Academy Prize, and "Best Film Award" at Tokyo Anime Award Festival 2015, Stand By Me Doraemon is released and distributed by VIVA International Pictures and MVP Entertainment. Showing today in theaters nationwide.
