Hong Kong fans of manga and anime character Doraemon are in for a treat this weekend as the city will stage the world’s first drone show dedicated to the blue-and-white cat this weekend. The display will feature 1,000 drones that will take the form of imagery associated with the beloved character over Victoria Harbour at 7:30pm on May 25. The last time an official Doraemon show came to Hong Kong was in 2012, when 100 models of the fictional feline were put on display outside Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui.

The organisers of the event, AllRightsReserved, say the best spot to view the 15-minute show will be the Avenue of Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui, specifically near Salisbury Garden. They also caution viewers against watching the display near the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and the Hong Kong Museum of Art as these areas will have limited visibility.

The landmark drone show is being staged as a preview to the 100% DORAEMON & FRIENDS Tour in Hong Kong — one of the world’s largest Doraemon exhibitions, which have 135 large-scale models of the popular Japanese cartoon character pop up across the city. The exhibition will open on July 13, and tickets will be available on May 25 on Klook. There will be free-entry zones and ticketed areas, all of which will celebrate the 90th anniversary of Doraemon creator Fujiko F Fujio. More details about the drone show and exhibition will be revealed on the morning of May 25.
