The film series’ website launched on October 10, listing the co-production
Continuing on from where Sailor Moon Crystal left off, the two part film series, Sailor Moon Eternal, will be hitting Japanese theaters in 2020. The film series will be adapting the “Dream” arc – also known as the “Dead Moon” arc – from the franchise that was first adapted in Sailor Moon SuperS.
On October 10, the official website for the films launched, listing some of key staff and production companies.
Returning from Sailor Moon Crystal season 3 is director Chiaki Kon to helm both films. Returning from the original 90’s anime series is character designer Kazuko Tadano. The cast members are also reprising their roles from Sailor Moon Crystal. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) will be writing up the script for both films.
Sailor Moon Eternal will be produced at Toei Animation – as it has been since the 90’s – and Studio Deen (KONOSUBA -God's blessing on this wonderful world!). It is not known how much of the films will be produced where or what studios will be looking after. Toei Animation will distribute the film in Japan when it is released in 2020.
