The official website for the Crayon Shin-chan anime films began streaming a trailer and teaser video on Friday for Eiga Crayon Shin-chan Shinkon Ryokō Hurricane ~Ushinawareta Hiroshi~ (Crayon Shin-chan the Movie: Honeymoon Hurricane, Lost Hiroshi), the series’ 27th film. The film will open in Japan on April 19.
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 Yajimadeparted from the role. The other main cast members are reprising their roles for the film.
Masakazu Hashimoto, who directed three previous Crayon Shin-chanfilms, is returning to direct the film. Kimiko Ueno is also returning to write the script with Munenori Mizuno (Doraemon, Midnight Crazy Trail). Shinei Animation, TV Asahi, ADK, and Futabasha are credited for production.
