Indonesian cinema chain CGV Cinemas revealed on Saturday that Odex's screening of the Eiga Crayon Shin-chan Gekitotsu! Rakuga Kingdom to Hobo Yonin no Yūsha (Crayon Shin-chan the Movie: Crash! Rakuga Kingdom and Roughly Four Heroes) film will open in Indonesia on March 31.
The 28th Crayon Shin-chan film opened on September 11 after it was delayed from its April 24 opening due to the effects of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The film opened at #1. The film sold 212,000 tickets and earned 262 million yen (about US$2.47 million) in its opening weekend.
The film's story features a "magical crayon," and centers around a floating kingdom called Rakuga Kingdom (the name is a pun on the word "rakugaki" meaning "scribbling"). The kingdom gets its energy from scribbles, but lately the scribbles are decreasing and the kingdom is in danger of collapsing. To save the country, the military start forcing humans to scribble.
Takahiko Kyōgoku (Land of the Lustrous, Love Live! School idol project, GATE) directed the film, and Ryō Takada (Meow Meow Japanese History) wrote the script. Shinei Animation, TV Asahi, ADK, and Futabasha are credited for production. Musician Takafumi Ikeda's "solo unit" Rekishi performed the film's theme song "Giga Aishiteru."
