The official website for the 20th-anniversary film for Toei Animation's Ojamojo Doremi series, Majo Minarai wo Sagashite (Looking for Witch Apprentices)/ Looking for Magical Doremi, updated a new key visual featuring the film's three protagonists, as well as the six witch apprentices from the original series - Doremi, Hazuki, Aiko, Onpu, Momoko, and Pop. The tagline attached with the visual is "Happy Lucky Minna ni Todoke," which was the original protagonist Doremi Harukaze's iconic line.
The film has also been officially confirmed to be screened at the 33rd Tokyo International Film Festival to be held from October 31 to November 9 as a special invitation feature, prior to its theatrical release in Japan on November 13. A stage greeting is also planned during the event. The schedule and other details will be announced soon.
The 20th-anniversary film focuses on three adults, Sora Nagase, Mire Yoshigaki, and Reika Kawatani, who once witnessed a magical happening twenty years ago. Through a journey to visit the places related to the Ojamajo Doremi anime series, they look for the important things that they forgot as growing up as an adult.
Staff members who worked on the original anime series will be returning to the project, including Junichi Sato and Yū Kamatani as directors, Midori Kuriyama as a screenwriter, and Yoshihiko Umakoshi as the character designer. The voice actresses from the original series will reprise their roles. The film was originally scheduled to be released in theatres on May 15, 2020, but it was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is scheduled to release on November 13, 2020.
