Magician of the Silver Sky
Magician of the Silver Sky is the 8th movie in the Detective Conan franchise. It was released in Japan on April 17, 2004.
A woman called Juri comes to Kogoro Mouri with her manager and asks for her help. She got a letter from Kaitou Kid that he is going to steal the Jewel of Destiny which is a star sapphire. Kaitou Kid's message like always is a code.
The lady uses it in a play that she is in called "Josephine". During the day of the play, Conan, Ran, Kogoro, Detective Boys, Sonoko, and Professor Agasa go with him to see the play. While getting ready to play the part of Josephine, the kids look around the make up room. Kogoro notices that she is a beginner diver. Ayumi is interested in the cosmetics; she attempts to try one on but gets caught by the make-up artist, Sakai Natsuki.
Soon the other actors come in. There's Bunjiro Narusawa, Tenko Tajima, Iaso Shinjo, and Toru Ban. Ginzo Nakamori comes in after them. After arguing with each other, Nakamori introduces someone that Inspector Megure told him to bring. Shinichi Kudo comes in and everyone is shocked, especially Conan. Conan outbreaks, "He's not Shinichi-niichan!" Kogoro asks him how he knows that, and Conan almost told everyone, but stopped himself at the last second, responding nothing.
Inspector Nakamori pinches Shinichi's face and determines its the real Shinichi; Conan knows the reason he's not wearing a mask is because he looks like him. Nakamori pinches everyone's faces to make sure none of them is Kid. Shinichi tells everyone that he will investigate on his own and asks if Ran wants to come with him. Conan, determined not to let him be with her alone, begs Ran if he can come too. After checking all the doors with Ran, Shinichi goes off to see the view. Ran comments to Sonoko that something about Shinichi isn't right.
The play starts and Conan uses his night-vision glasses to make sure Kid doesn't leave. Kid waves to him and leaves, so Conan runs after him. They eventually get to the roof where they comment they will settle things here. Kaitou Kid comments that his love is waiting to eat dinner with him, and Ran's voice is heard saying, "Conan, dinner is ready!" Conan looks back at Kaitou Kid and he sees he was mimicking Ran's voice. Conan tries to hit him with his soccer ball but misses, and is backed up to the railing.
Kaitou Kid shoots and Conan dodges it, but falls off. Kaitou Kid, concerned about him falling, runs off the building and flies after him; Conan uses this opportunity to try and stun him with his watch, but Kid barely dodges it. Conan then pulls a cord coming from his backpack and a parachute is released. After a chase, Kid manages to get away.
The cast of the play invites everyone to go to Haido with them because of their work protecting the sapphire. The next day, while waiting for the plane so they can go to Hokkaido, Conan feels like someone is watching him. Meanwhile, Inspector Nakamori goes to where they are going to be staying in Hokkaido early to make sure Kaitou Kid isn't there setting anything up. They look in Juri's cabin and they see a silhoutte of Kaitou Kid.
Back at they airport they all get on the plane (first-class) and it seems that Ran invited Eri. Coming late is Shinjo who is Juri's boyfriend; He goes up to Juri and kisses her sapphire ring. While on the plane, Conan figures out the meaning of the card and the four words on the letter. It was to say he was going to steal it on the plane.
Right after take off, Juri seems desperate to go to the washroom. When she finally goes in, she comes out in a very short while. Right after coming out, Juri goes to the cockpit to meet the pilots. It seems they know her, and it is revealed she used to be a pilot.
Juri goes back and eats one of the chocolates her manager offered her. Kogoro also eats one. After licking her lips, she seems like she is choking and dies.
The manager becomes the main suspect as she offered the chocolate to Juri and Natsuki explains to Kogoro that *everyone* has a motive to kill Juri.
- This case is clearly modeled after The Locked Room in the Sky: Shinichi Kudo's First Case and episode 179 of the TV series Walker, Texas Ranger.
- Kenzo Tajima, the actor and murderer in The Traveling Drama Troupe Murder Case, bears a strange resemblance with Tenko Tajima and has the same surname kanji. However, despite being very probable, nothing confirms that he is her older brother.
- SKY-J in scene is a reference to JAL (Japan Airlines) from real life.
- The airplane in scene is a Boeing 747-400.
- Isao Shinjo's car while disguised as Kid is a 1962 Mazda Carol 360 Deluxe [KPDA].
- Ginzo Nakamori, Detective Konno, and Juzo Megure's police car is a 1991 Toyota Crown [S140].
