Comedian duo Kagaya (Shō Kaga and Sōya Gaya) guest-star in the film in multiple roles. Gaya plays an older man who sings enka songs, while the pair play manzai comedy performers, as well as two busking bandmates.

Kouji Kikkawa makes his voice-acting debut as Maestro Vento in the film. (Kikkawa previously narrated the Gifū Dōdō!! Kanetsugu to Keiji anime.) Maestro Vento is the leader of the musician robots in the planet Musica, and the manager of its music hall. Kanji Ishimaru plays the robot musician Wakner in his first foray in the Doraemon film series.

The new film has a music theme, as Doraemon and friends go on an adventure to meet new buddies, connect to people with music, and save the world from a crisis.
