Plot[edit]

Before the film, Papi, the president of a faraway planet runs after attack by an enemy spaceship. In the present, After getting fired for destroying the set of the space movie Gian and Suneo were making, Nobita approaches Doraemon who then goes to Dekisugi but he is already signed by Gian and Suneo. They instead rope in Shizuka for help, who prefers to make a cartoon movie, disappointing Nobita.

While shooting, the robot rabbit disappears. After Nobita's mother rediscovers it, the kids find Papi inside it, who explains that he is the president of Parika Galaxy. General Gilmore, who is the ruler of the enemy PCIA Galaxy, expects presidency at Parika. Becoming a top target for Gilmore, Papi is transported to Earth for safety.

During an afternoon shooting, Suneo's set is destroyed by a PCIA spaceship sent for investigation of Papi. Though heavily damaged, the spaceship sends cameras disguised as fireflies. Doraemon opens a basement within Shizuka's house where Papi is hosted in a dollhouse. One of the firefly transfers coyly in Gian's pocket after which the boys have a meeting in the basement.

At the dusk, while the boys and Papi leave for the ship, Shizuka is held captive by Dorakoruru, PCIA's head, along with his troops who demand Papi in exchange. Papi offers himself to be taken in exchange for Shizuka which Dorakorule accepts. Papi's pet dog, Rokoroko arrives but is too late to save Papi. After explaining about the war-torn Parika, Nobita, and his friends head there to save Papi.

During their flight to Parika, they help a fellow Parika spaceship to destroy the enemy attacker. At Parika's head office, Army chief Genbo explains Papi is held in PCIA's head office facing a death sentence. The group leaves with Rokoroko except Suneo and Shizuka who remain at Parika for defense. At PCIA, Nobita and group unite with Freedom Party but are soon captured by PCIA soldiers after being traced down by Gilmore's cameras. Back at Parika's head office, war is declared as PCIA's army would arrive in 3 hours. When the patrols arrive, Shizuka and Suneo fight them off. Though they fall down after attack, they regain their actual size.

At PCIA, Nobita and group are also sentenced to execution, but moments before the hanging, they miraculously grow back to their normal size and reunite with Shizuka and Suneo, realizing that Small Light's power limit finished. In an epic battle, where tiny spaceships fight against the huge children, Nobita and his friends have the upper hand. As they destroy mini-spaceships, Gian single-handedly sits on and thrashes the main spaceship. Gilmore surrenders in front of the rallying Parika citizens. Saying goodbye to Papi, Nobita and his friends head back to Earth. On the way, they plan to visit Parika again the next Sunday.
