Sailor Moon Cosmos the Movie

After the release of Sailor Moon Eternal (in this article the review) divided into two parts, released in Japan between January and February 2021, adaptation of the entire fourth season of the anime, fans of the franchise were anxiously awaiting the announcement of the adaptation of the last part of the manga Naoko Takeuchi published in our country by the Star Comics publishing house. Well, the wait is over. Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Cosmos the Movie (Gekijōban Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon Cosmos) will be released in Japan in early summer 2023 and will mark the conclusion of Sailor Moon Crystal. Released a trailer and the key visual.

Teaser and information on Sailor Moon Cosmos the Movie

Sailor Moon Cosmos the Movie is the adaptation of the "final battle" of the original manga series Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi which in the past had been adapted as the last story arc of the Sailor Moon anime known in Italy with the title of Star Petals for Sailor Moon.

The film will be divided into two parts that see the return of the Sailor Moon Crystal cast.

Here is the key visual:

As for the staff, Tomoya Takahashi (Den-noh Coil, Gatchaman Crowds) is directing both films at Toei Animation. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (all six parts of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Land of the Lustrous, PriPara) will return to write the scripts. Kazuko Tadano, the character designer of the original Sailor Moon anime, will continue to design the characters. Yasuharu Takanashi (Naruto Shippūden) returns to compose the music. Yumiko Soraga is the artistic director.

You can watch the trailer below:

We remind you that the third season of Sailor Moon Crystal debuted in April 2016 and is available on Crunchyroll and Netflix.

This is the synopsis of the anime:

Usagi Tsukino, fourteen year old lazy and crybaby, receives from the talking kitten Luna the power to transform herself into Sailor Moon, champion of justice dressed in the sailor who draws her powers from the moon, and the mission to find her fellow warriors, the mysterious "Crystal silver ”and the princess of the lunar kingdom to which the kitten belongs. In fact, the latter seems to have reincarnated in a human of the twentieth century following the destruction of the kingdom by the evil Dark Kingdom, the same evil entity that now threatens the Earth and craves the power of the mysterious crystal. Gradually, the group is formed, with the progressive awakening of the other warriors: the sweet and intelligent Ami Mizuno / Sailor Mercury, with the power to control the waters, the fiery Shinto priestess Rei Hino / Sailor Mars, with psychic powers and able to control the flames, the strong and protective Makoto Kino / Sailor Jupiter, mistress of lightning and trees and the beautiful Minako Aino / Sailor Venus, the "goddess of love". The Sailor Moon Crystal series, made for the twentieth anniversary of the franchise, is faithfully based on the original manga by Naoko Takeuchi, unlike the animated series of the 90s.

The end of Sailor Moon is coming with new Sailor Moon Cosmos theatrical anime【Video】

Paired anime films from new director seek to put finishing flourish on the Sailor saga.

Despite a huge level of hype, Sailor Moon Crystal got off to an underwhelming start, with the remake/reboot failing to hit fans with the same mix of fun and drama that the original Sailor Moon manga or its 1990s anime adaptation did. The franchise has been on a steady upward trend in recent years, though, with later episodes of Crystal and last year’s two-part Sailor Moon Eternal movie being much bigger crowd pleasers.

And now the modern Sailor Moon anime is getting a chance to stick the landing, as the last arc of the manga is being adapted as Sailor Moon Cosmos.

Cosmos will cover the portion of the Shadow Galactica arc of creator Naoko Takeuchi’s Sailor Moon manga, which also served as the basis for Sailor Moon Sailor Stars, the fifth and final season of the ‘90s anime. With Sailor Stars arriving in 1996, as the franchise was starting to run out of steam in Japan, Cosmos represents an opportunity to tell the tale with a grander scale of spectacle, especially since Sailor Stars never had an associated theatrical feature, unlike the ‘90s series’ second, third, and fourth seasons.

With the modern Sailor Moon anime sticking closer to the manga than the ‘90s series, and Shadow Galactica being the manga’s last arc, odds are Cosmos is also the last Sailor Moon animation we’ll be seeing for quite some time. The preview video is certainly leaning into a climactic atmosphere, with Sailor Moon’s voice-over saying:

“If I wasn’t a Sailor Senshi, would my friends have reached out to me? Would we have even ever met?”

“Everything, always is my fault. Because of the power I have, everyone gets sucked into things. I don’t know if I can stop it anymore. My friends always risk their lives to protect me. So that’s why there’s something that only I can do. I believe that, without fail, our future will come.”

Like Eternal, Sailor Moon Cosmos will be a two-part theatrical anime, with both movies directed by franchise newcomer Tomoya Takahashi, whose resume includes credits as director of boys’ love movie Sekaiichi Hatsukoi: Propose and episode director for Den-noh Coil, From the New World, and Pokémon XY & Z. Kazuko Tadano, character designer for the original ‘90s Sailor Moon anime and Eternal returns in the same role, as does scriptwriter Kazuyuki Fudeyasu, who penned Eternal.

Both parts of Sailor Moon Cosmos are scheduled for release in Japanese theaters in summer of 2023.
