The film is a remake of the Doraemon: Nobita no Nihon Tanjō (Doraemon: Nobita at the Birth of Japan) film, which originally opened in Japan in March 1989. Tsutomu Shibayama (chief director of the 1979 Doraemon television anime series and many of the films) directed the film. In the film's story, Nobita comes up with the idea of running away from home because he is always being scolded at home and at school. Additionally, Gian, Shizuka, and Suneo all have their own reasons for running away from home. Together with Doraemon, they all travel through time to the Japan of 70,000 years ago.

The original film boasts the largest theatergoing audience in the Doraemon film franchise, with 4.2 million tickets sold.

Shinnosuke Yakuwa (Doraemon Shin Nobita no Daimakyo ~Peko to 5-nin no Tankentai~ director, assistant director for 2005 Doraemon television anime series) will direct and write the script for the remake film.

The previous film in the franchise, Doraemon: Nobita no Space Heroes, opened on March 7. The first 3DCG film in the franchise, Stand By Me Doraemon, opened in Japan in August 2014 before opening in 21 other countries and territories.
