Indonesian television station Trans TV is set to air three of Crayon Shin-chan films: Super Dimension! The Storm Called My Bride, Storm Called: Operation Golden Spy, and Storm Called: Me and the Space Princess, each being the theatrical films of Crayon Shin-chan anime released in 2010, 2011, and 2012 respectively. Super Dimension! The Storm Called My Bride has previously been shown in Indonesian cinema in 2013 as part of the J-Impact film festival.

Crayon Shin-chan tells the everyday life of Shinnosuke Nohara, nicknamed Shin-chan, a five year-old boy with his family and is adapted from the manga of the same name by Yoshito Usui. The manga itself has been published in Indonesia, previously by PT. Indorestu Pacific and currently by the Elex Media Komputindo, while the anime aired on the TV channel RCTI until 2015, and also briefly aired on TRANS7. The Crayon Shin-chan license in Indonesia is held by PT. Perdana IMMG and Animation International Ltd. The series has also garnered some controversy in Indonesia for jokes that are considered inappropriate for children by media watchdog.
