The much-awaited first part will open in Japan on January 8, 2021
Following the three for Amazon Trio, the official website for the upcoming two-part film Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie has announced the voice cast for the four members of Amazoness Qualtet, another villain team of the films: Reina Ueda as CereCere, Sumire Morohoshi as PallaPalla, Yuko Hara as JunJun, and Rie Takahashi as VesVes. The site and the film's official Twitter have posted their messages to express their excitement to join the films.
CereCere: Reina Ueda (Akane Shinjo in SSSS.Gridman):
"When I was asked to join the films, I felt a lot of pressure, but I was also very happy. I spent almost every day of my childhood watching my favorite stories on the Sailor Moon DVD that my mother bought for me, and while I was watching it, I felt like I was the Sailor Guardian myself, and I couldn't help but enjoy it. I still remember many of the scenes vividly. Thinking back to my childhood when I was so absorbed in the series, I wanted to cherish the feelings I had at the time and do my best to deliver them well. CereCere-san's visuals are very feminine, soft, and glamorous, and she has a cool side that makes you feel confident and margin of her mind. I tried to play her fluffy cheerfulness very carefully. More than anything else, I felt that the four members of Amazoness Quartet, including CereCere, have received a lot of love from the audience and have continued to refine their characters. I have done my best to bring out their personalities and charms. I hope you will look forward to seeing them in the films."
PallaPalla: Sumire Morohoshi (Ichigo Hoshimiya in Aiktatsu!):
"Everyone knows Sailor Moon, which has been loved by so many people since even before I was born. When I was little, I was pretty much addicted to the Sailor Moon Family Computer games we had at home. When I was asked to appear in such Sailor Moon, I felt honored, but at the same time I felt a sense of responsibility and nervousness, like 'I needed to put all my mind to it.' I was immediately drawn to her charms from the moment I saw the early footage of PallaPalla to join an audition for the role, so I really wanted to play her. I was very happy to see my wish come true. She is in the position as the youngest sister in Amazoness Quartet, but I wanted to express her childishness and innocence to make her as the character to be loved by the audience, even though she is a villain role. I tried my best to express her personality and charm in my own way, such as speaking lispingly, changing her facial expressions so often, and expressing her emotions honestly. I hope you'll all be looking forward to it!"
Jun Jun: Yuko Hara (Takumi Mukai in The [email protected] Cinderella Girls)
"I loved Sailor Moon so much that when I was little, my parents bought me a costume and I spent the whole day playing Sailor Moon. When I heard the audition result, I was so happy. I never thought I'd be able to star in such a big production, so I was very anxious until I got the recording script. I was properly surprised one more time after receiving it (laughs). My character JunJun is a bit rough with words, but she's very passionate. I hope I can give you a character that's not just strong, but also passionate. Also, JunJun and the rest of the Amazoness Quartet members are also a circus group, so I hope we can make it fun and exciting. They are very exciting films, so please come to the theater and let your heart buzz with excitement!"
VesVes: Rie Takahashi (Megumin in KonoSuba, Emilia in Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World):
"The first video game I ever became obsessed with was one based on 'Sailor Moon S.' I decorated cakes and played dress-up in the game, and the BGM and screens are still etched in my mind. I never thought I'd ever be involved in Sailor Moon. I felt honored enough to be able to audition for the role, so I was surprised and delighted at even playing it. VesVes is a striking character with beautiful and eye-catching red hair. From the ways she uses her whip and she tames the ravenous beast, I tried to play her with passion and girlishness based on her queenly behavior. With great care for the relationship we made this time, the cast of Amazoness Quartet worked as one team! I myself am looking forward to seeing how the girls will move, talk, and stir up the story. I hope you'll be looking forward to the release!"
The upcoming films are based on the fourth "Dead Moon" arc of Naoko Takeuchi's original Sailor Moon manga and produced as the fourth arc of the Sailor Moon Crystal web anime series.
