The official website of the 24th Crayon Shin-chan film, Eiga Crayon Shin-chan Bakusui! Yumemi World Dai Totsugeki (Crayon Shin-chan the Movie Fast Asleep! The Great Assault on the Dreaming World), announced on Wednesday that the film will feature Ken Yasuda, Michiko Kichise, and comedian Tonikaku Akarui Yasumura as its guest voice cast.
Yasuda (left in picture below) will play Saki's father and dream researcher Yumehiko Nubetama. Kichise (center) will play Sayuri Nubetama, Yumehiko's wife. Yasumura (right) will play himself in the anime film.
The website previously streamed a trailer for the film in December.
In the movie's story, Shin-chan's town is trapped in a nightmare world. The movie will also feature the new character, Saki, a mysterious transfer student who is somehow connected to the dreams.
The film will open in Japan on April 16.
Wataru Takahashi (Crayon Shin-chan films 17-23) is returning to direct the new film, and comedian Hitori Gekidan (actor in Train Man, Fusé: Memoirs of a Huntress) wrote the film's script along with Takahashi. Voice actors Akiko Yajima (Shin-chan), Miki Narahashi (Misae Nohara), Keiji Fujiwara (Hiroshi Nohara), and Satomi Koorogi (Himawari!) are returning to voice characters in the film.
The 23rd film, Eiga Crayon Shin-chan: Ora no Hikkoshi Monogatari ~Saboten Daishūgeki (Crayon Shin-chan: My Moving Story ~Cactus Attack!~), premiered in Japan on April 18. The film eventually grossed 2.28 billion yen (about US$18.2 million) during its theatrical run. The film followed the Nohara family after they move to Mexico.
