As announced a few days ago like at http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2012/07/06/sailor-moon-anime-announced-for-summer-2013 and http://www.toonzone.net/2012/07/new-sailor-moon-anime-announced-at-paris-japan-expo/

"Fans hoping that a new Sailor Moon anime would be announced during the 20th anniversary event streamed live from Nico Nico got their wish. Specifics on the plans for the new version of Naoko Takeuchi's seminal magic girl work were not announced beyond a summer 2013 time frame, but it is coming.

The event featured appearances by Kotono Mitsuishi and Toru Furuya, who played Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon) and her love interest Mamoru Chiba (Tuxedo Mask) in the original series. Also in attendance was Kodansha’s Fumio Osano, an editor for Sailor Moon creator Naoko Takeuchi.

The new Sailor Moon will be produced by Toei animation, which also animated the original series. It was stated that there are plans to distribute it worldwide once it begins broadcast next year; the anime is currently targeted for a Summer 2013 premiere.

Momoiro Clover Z, who joined the event from Japan Expo 2012 in Paris via satellite to sing "Moonlight Densetsu," will be performing the anime's theme song."

It's great news! It will be intriguing if it will be a total reboot, retelling or even a continuation from the last series with the Stars. Whatever it is this is amazing news right?! Do discuss thoughts on the new series here in the thread!

Can finally report more official news!

Source: http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/08/04-1/new-sailor-moon-anime-to-stream-worldwide-on-nico-nico-douga-this-winter

-First, it was confirmed that Momoiro Clover Z would sing both the opening and ending while also handling the ending theme, the title of which has yet to be confirmed.

-Next, it was also confirmed that the new series will be streamed worldwide via NicoNico Douga, though editor Fumio Osano also confirmed that no decisions have been taken regarding subtitles, although they will be keeping international fans in mind. Osano also confirmed that no decisions regarding the voice cast were made yet and mentioned during the event that they could not even announce the voice actress for Usagi since no decisions have been made on that front either.

-Finally, when commenting on the direction the new anime will take, Osano stated that it will not be a remake of the first series, suggesting that the new series will take a different direction than the previous series.

On a personal level, been spreading the word at conventions up here in Canada when meeting the voice actresses from the old show when DIC dubbed them. They'd love to do the voices again so here's hoping they get the chance! Here's hoping for more news on the series with the months to come.

Some recent news was posted at http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/10/04-1/sailor-moon-voice-actress-talks-dub-rumors

-It's interesting having met Linda and some of the other Voice Actresses at conventions this year who they wanted to do the series again having heard too about the new reboot. It's unfortunate in one way but hopefully good new choices are made for the new English cast if the show gets off the ground.

-As for the article in French to summarize, the series got delayed due to creative differences. The author really wanted a more sombre, dark tone like done in the mangas if you've ever gotten to read them, but TOEI wants a more kid-friendly lighter series like done in the first run. This creative difference has caused the majority of the delays so hopefully some compromise comes out of negotiations.
