The world’s first Doraemon-themed drone show was staged on Saturday evening over Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong, attracting huge crowds of spectators.

The dazzling 15-minute show featured 1,000 drones which took off from Tsim Sha Tsui promenade, recreating figures from the popular manga and animation series.

Earlier on Saturday, an exhibition "100% Doraemon & Friends" was held at Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park in Hong Kong. The world's tallest 12-meter Doraemon inflatable sculpture and 60 Doraemon sculptures were unveiled at the preview of the show.

With Hong Kong as the first stop, the exhibition will be held from July 13 to Aug 4 to mark what would have been the 90th birthday year of creator Fujiko F Fujio, who died in 1996.
