It was released in Japan on August 7, 2020 (originally planned to release on March 6, 2020, but was later postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak). A DVD and Blu-Ray version of the movie was released on December 16, 2020 in Japan, and on March 23, 2021 (originally scheduled to be on March 16, 2021, but was postponed a few days for currently unknown or no reasons) in Hong Kong, and on June 11, 2021 in Taiwan.
Nobita hatches two new dinosaurs, named Kyu and Myu, via the Time Cloth. Nobita nurtures and takes care of these dinosaurs, to prove to his friends that he can find a real dinosaur. Once the dinosaurs are of age, Nobita shows them to Shizuka, Gian, and Suneo. Afterwards, the gang takes a trip to the past, where they can see Kyu and Myu's home, which have many other dinosaurs inhabiting it. This causes some trouble for everyone, as they try to stay safe. Along the way, there is a group of mysterious foes who hope to steal Kyu and Myu from Nobita.
Nobita, who visited the dinosaur exhibition with Suneo, finds a fossil of a dinosaur egg in a fossil excavation experience. " Time wrapping cloth " and covered with, had been born twins of feathered dinosaur . It was also a new species (new dinosaur) not listed in the " Complete Encyclopedia of the Universe ". Nobita named the twin dinosaurs Kew and Mu, and sometimes with the advice of Dr. Dinosaur, grows up with Doraemon in Novisaurusland (" breeding diorama set "). The two animals that grew quickly showed a gradual difference, and the cue fluttered awkwardly against the lightly gliding mu, so they could not fly. And finally, the day will come when we will unveil in front of the Giants. However, by using the " spatial movement crayon " to hide from the mama who noticed the commotion, the residents of the town witnessed it, and the limit was reached to grow cues and mus in modern times. Nobita once struggled to return to his friends, but when he decided, the next morning, all five of them boarded the " time machine. "
Doraemon and his group head for the Late Cretaceous , counting back from the time when the fossil returned to the egg in "Time Furoshiki" . Despite the trouble of arriving in the Jurassic era by mistake, he managed to reach the target era and track the whereabouts of Kew and Mu's friends while using secret tools such as the " Egg Expedition ". Jill, a man in the shape of a white monkey, was secretly watching the situation while communicating with a mysterious woman named Natalie. Not knowing that they are being watched, the group searches for Kyu and Mu's companions, and finally reaches the sea while adding dinosaurs such as Gol and Top with " Tomochoco " during the trip . Although he acts in two parts, Gian and Suneo are captured by Jill, and Doraemon and others are in danger of being attacked by a huge pterosaur . Although it was Nobita and the queue to fall into the sea, strange futabasaurus helped to arrive at the island of mystery, play a reunion with Doraemon, Shizuka-mu. It was an island inhabited by the new dinosaurs, the cue and mu friends that the group was looking for. Nobita tries to return the two to his companion, but Kew is sharply scratched by the males in the herd and refused to join. Is it because the cue cannot fly unlike other new dinosaurs and its physique is inferior? Nobita, trembling with regret and sadness, declares that he will be able to fly the cue brilliantly.
Meanwhile, Jill heading to the island on a submarine was told by Natalie that Deep Impact was imminent. Gian and Suneo, who were watching the escape from the cage, noticed the truth of the mysterious island by looking at the map. Around that time, Nobita and Kew, who had begun practicing to fly, had a misunderstanding, and the practice was interrupted. Nobita Nobi was quietly encouraged, and when he searched for a cue with the " Questioner Stick ", he found a cue who continued practicing alone. I started practicing as I was able to make a back hip circle that Nobita was not good at. At that time, a huge object that shines in the sky flows.
Gian and Suneo also rushed in, and when they were all together, Doraemon tells us that this was the time when the dinosaurs were extinct when a meteorite collided with the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico 66 million years ago . Nobita tries to use a " counterclock " to return the meteorite to space, but " Time Marine " appears there, and Natalie stops the party's actions. Jill reveals that he was watching this era as a time patrol , and asserts that history cannot be changed, even though he is close to Nobita's heart, thinking of dinosaurs. Even so, Nobita, who tried to force him to help Kew and Mu, was detained by the members, and even Doraemon, who was trying to protect him, was about to be taken away. However, when Jill holds the " check card " over Nobita and the cue, the card emits light. Jill and his time patrol decide not to interfere with their actions.
Doraemon is out of time patrol restraint, but struggles to help Kew and Mu and other dinosaurs. However, information provided by Gian and Suneo revealed that the island of New Dinosaurs was a Novisaurusland ("bred diorama set") dropped during the Jurassic period. Move the dinosaurs to Novisaurus Land with the "Space Movement Crayon" and start a rescue operation to protect them from the hot air of the meteorite impact with the "Weather Control Function" of the diorama. As the time limit for reaching the hot air approaches, Nobita and Doraemon, who remain on the island and prepare, are attacked by a giant pterosaur again. A cue that finally flew in the sky to help Nobita who became a decoy. The awkward movement that the cue was showing as it was about to fly was a sign of flapping. From gliding to flapping, from dinosaurs to birds. Jill and his colleagues are astonished to witness the first step toward evolution, the moment when history is born. The dinosaurs were rescued and settled on the island, and Nobita and his friends said goodbye to Kew and Mu. Jill superimposes a dinosaur with evolved wings, a caring heart for others, and a human being who has evolved rich emotions. And Nobita, who returned to the present age, challenged the back hip circle that he could not do, and finally succeeded.
