Earlier today, the official Sailor Moon website updated with news that the first Sailor Moon Eternal film will hit Japanese theaters on September 11, 2020. As of press time, no further details were announced.
Sailor Moon Eternal will adapt the manga’s “Dead Moon” arc.
Chiaki Kon (Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal: Season III, When They Cry – Higurashi) will take the director’s chair for the project, while Kazuko Tadano (Sailor Moon, Hunter × Hunter) provides character designs. The main voice cast will reprise their roles from Sailor Moon Crystal.
The third season of Sailor Moon Crystal, which adapts the Death Busters arc, aired in the Spring 2016 broadcast season. Chiaki Kon (Junjo Romantica) replaced Munehisa Sakai, who helmed the first two seasons, as director at Toei Animation. Akira Takahashi (Smile PreCure) took over for Yukie Sakou as character designer on the project, as writer Yuji Kobayashi returned to take charge of series composition.
Studio DEEN will co-produce the feature.
