The first film was originally scheduled to open in Japan on September 11, 2020, but was delayed until January 8 due to the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Japan. The second film opened in Japan on February 11.
The movie brand has been 25 years since the last franchise had a job that was screened in theaters in Japan.
The original creator of the manga, Naoko Takeuchi, was credited with the original work and supervision. Chiaki Kon returned from Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal: Season III to direct both films. Kazuko Tadano, the character designer from the original Sailor Moon anime, designed the characters. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure TV anime, all five parts, Land of the Lustrous, PriPara) wrote the scripts. Toei distributed the film. Studio DEEN co-produced the film with Toei Animation.
Momoiro Clover Z and the main cast are performing the title track “Tsukiiro Chainon” (“Moon Color Chainon”).
The two-part film project takes the place of the fourth season of Sailor Moon Crystal. The films will cover the “Dead Moon” arc from Takeuchi’s original manga.
Sailor Moon is a Japanese shōjo manga series written and illustrated by Naoko Takeuchi. It was originally serialized in Nakayoshi from 1991 to 1997; the 60 individual chapters were published in 18 tankōbon volumes. The series follows the adventures of a schoolgirl named Usagi Tsukino as she transforms into Sailor Moon in search of a magical artifact, the “Legendary Silver Crystal.” She leads a group of comrades, the Sailor Soldiers, as they fight villains to prevent the theft of the Silver Crystal and the destruction of the Solar System.
The manga was adapted into an anime series produced by Toei Animation and broadcast in Japan from 1992 to 1997. Toei also developed three animated feature films, a television special, and three short films based on the anime. A live-action television adaptation, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, aired from 2003 to 2004, and a second anime series, Sailor Moon Crystal, began simulcasting in 2014.
