Former AKB48 idol group member Rino Sashihara is playing Sumaho-chan, a character who is named that by Shin-chan due to her habit of always using her smartphone ('sumaho' is Japanese slang for smartphone). Hiroaki Hirata is playing the town mayor and Kenyuu Horiuchi is playing Nene Rodriguez, also known as Rainbow Mask. Female comedian duo Nippon Elekitel Rengō members Akemi-chan (real name Koyuki Hashimoto) and Hosogai-san (Sōko Nakano) will also guest-star as themselves.

The film opens on Saturday, April 18 in Japan.
