Tsutomu Shibayama (chief director of the 1979 Doraemon television anime series and many of the films) directed the original film. In the film's story, Nobita comes up with the idea of running away from home because he is always being scolded at home and at school.

The original film boasts the largest theatergoing audience in the Doraemon film franchise, with 4.2 million tickets sold.
