Announced last fall, a new feature film in the Ojamajo Doremi world is coming that’s been formally scheduled for the summer 2020 period next year. We got the May 15th, 2020 debut at TIFF earlier this month and now some new updates have arrived. The latest comes in the form of a new key visual you can see below as well as the addition of three male actors to the cast with:
- Kenta Hamano as Seiya Kubo
- Shohei Miura as Ryūichi Oomiya
- Akira Ishida as Hayato Yabe
Going under the name Majo Minarai o Sagashite, which translates to Looking for Witch Apprentices, it’ll be directed by Junichi Sato based on the screenplay by Midori Kuriyama. Yoshihiko Umakoshi is on board with the character designs with Toei Animation handling the production.
Plot Concept: The story follows 27-year-old Tokyo office worker Mire Yoshitsuki who just returned to Japan, 22-year-old fourth-year college student Sora Nagase who aspires to be a teacher, and 20-year-old boyish, part-time Hiroshima okonomiyaki shop worker and freelancer Reika Kawatani. What draws together these three women from completely different walks of life is a magic gem. A “New Magical Story” begins when they are mysteriously brought together by chance and embark on a journey.
