Announced during the Moonlight Party streaming event, the 1993 anime theatrical film Sailor Moon R THE MOVIE will be receiving a limited theatrical release in North America in January of 2017. The film will be screened in an uncut, newly HD remastered format and will be shown alongside the "Make Up! Sailor Guardians" theatrical short.
Viz Media describes the films:
Sailor Moon R the Movie :
Long before Mamoru found his destiny with Usagi, he gave a single rose in thanks to a lonely boy who helped him recover from the crash that claimed his parents. This long-forgotten friend, Fiore, has been searching the galaxy for a flower worthy of that sweet gesture long ago. The mysterious flower he finds is beautiful, but has a dark side- it has the power to take over planets. To make matters worse, the strange plant is tied to an ominous new asteroid near Earth! Faced with an enemy blooming out of control, It’s up to Sailor Moon and the Sailor Guardians to band together, stop the impending destruction and save Mamoru!
Make Up! Sailor Guardians :
Usagi and Chibi-Usa are at the cafe when they overhear two girls debating which of the Sailor Guardians is the best. Will Usagi’s alter-ego, Sailor Moon, end up being their favorite?
Sailor Moon R THE MOVIE is directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara and features animation by Toei Animation. More details about the limited theatrical release, including venues and show times, will be provided at a later date.
