Crayon Shin-chan Anime Reveals 2019 Film With Video
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for the Crayon Shin-chan anime films revealed on Friday that the series' 27th film is titled Eiga Crayon Shin-chan Shinkon Ryokō Hurricane ~Ushinawareta Hiroshi~ (Crayon Shin-chan the Movie: Honeymoon Hurricane, Lost Hiroshi) and will open in Japan on April 19. The website revealed a teaser video, as well as logo and icon images for the film.
The film appears to draw inspiration from the Indiana Jones film franchise. The film's subtitle is an apparent reference to the Japanese title of the Raiders of the Lost Ark film.
The anime is set in Australia and follows the Nohara family on an inexpensive and family-friendly honeymoon trip that Misae discovered. Instead of the romantic trip they envisioned, Misae, Hiroshi, and their children get wrapped up in a dangerous adventure. Hiroshi is the center of the story and becomes the key to a treasure. Hiroshi is taken away soon after the family's arrival in Australia. The remaining family members must rescue him while dealing with a mysterious masked group and treasure hunters.
The film will be Yumiko Kobayashi's first for the franchise in the title role. She took over the role of protagonist Shinnosuke Nohara in the television anime in July after previous voice actress Akiko Yajima departed from the role. The other main cast members are reprising their roles for the film.
Masakazu Hashimoto, who directed three previous Crayon Shin-chan films, is returning to direct the film. Kimiko Ueno is also returning to write the script with Munenori Mizuno (Doraemon, Midnight Crazy Trail). Shin-Ei Animation, TV Asahi, ADK, and Futabasha are credited for production.
