Indonesian cinema chain CGV Cinemas began streaming an Indonesian-subtitled trailer for the Stand By Me Doraemon 2 CG anime film on Thursday, revealing that Odex's screening of the film in Indonesia will open on February 19 exclusively in CGV Cinemas.
The film opened in Japan on November 20. The film was originally slated to open in Japan on August 7 until it was delayed due to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The film sold 305,000 tickets and earned 386 million yen (about US$3.69 million) to rank at #2 in its opening weekend. As of January 31, the film has earned a cumulative total of 2,693,514,750 yen (about US$25.68 million).
The film's story is largely based on the franchise's 2000 film Doraemon: Obāchan no Omoide (Doraemon: A Grandmother's Recollections), but adds original elements, including the love story of Shizuka and Nobita that was also present in the previous Stand By Me Doraemon film. The 2000 film, in turn, was based on a chapter from the fourth manga volume.
The first Stand By Me Doraemon film was the first 3D CG film in the franchise, and it eventually earned 8.38 billion yen (about US$77.16 million) in Japan and over 10 billion yen worldwide (about US$90 million).
