It premiered on March 6, 1999 in Japan on a bill with Nobita Drifts in the Universe. The movie's original plot was written by Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko.


The movie starts with Dekisugi expressing his love to Shizuka, which makes Nobita cry (even though it was a rehearsal for a play in Nobita's school though Nobita thought that it could influence Shizuka to marry Dekisugi). He goes to Doraemon, asking him to take him to the future to see if he and Shizuka will marry. Nobita and Doraemon travel to the future. When they arrive, they find out that they arrived on the day before the wedding. Future Nobita goes to a hotel and is told that his marriage would be held the next day. Nobita and Shizuka go for a walk but find a lost cat and decide to return it to its owner. But when they arrive near the house, they find out that the owner of the cat is going to fly to America. Nobita and Shizuka then decide to deliver the cat to the airport.

When they are on their way to the airport they find Gian and Suneo and give them a lift to the airport. But as they are about to reach the airport, their car runs out of fuel. Nobita and Shizuka run to the airport but find out that the plane had left. Luckily they learn that the cat owner's plane was assigned to a different gate and return the cat to the owner. They go back to the car and Gian invites Nobita to his bachelor party. He goes to the party and after returning he remembers Doraemon and his childhood. All the time he is being followed by Nobita (as a child) and Doraemon. Shizuka's mom advises Shizuka to go to sleep in preparation of the big day.
