posted on by Sarah Nelkin
A manga adaptation of the 2015 Doraemon film, Doraemon: Nobita no Space Heroes will begin serializing in the January 2015 issue of Shogakukan's Coro Coro Comic magazine on Saturday. Manga artist Mugiwara will pen the series.
The film will feature Doraemon, Nobita, Shizuka, Gian, and Suneo as heroes in space that fight against monsters. Doraemon has the power of a super punch, Nobita can use a cat's cradle move, the bath-loving Shizuka can control water, Gian has super strength, and Suneo has a drill on his arm.
The film will premiere in Japan on March 7, 2015 with the original main cast returning. Yoshihiro Oosugi will make his debut as a director for the film, and Higashi Shimizu will pen the scripts.
The previous film in the franchise titled Doraemon Shin Nobita no Daimakyo ~Peko to 5-nin no Tankentai~ premiered in March. The English broadcast of the Doraemon television anime premiered on Disney XD earlier this year.
