Sailor Moon on Ice becomes a reality…officially!
Many Dreamers have heard about Russian Olympic figure skater, and fan of Sailor Moon, Evgenia Medvedeva, who did this back in 2016, that caught the attention of one Naoko Takeuchi:
Today, the announcement is that Evgenia will become the character that she loved, when the Sailor Moon ice shows happen in June, 2020. Here’s Evgenia to make the announcement below:
The Sailor Moon Crystal movies become “Eternal” in 2020!
Last…but not least…
This was the big news everyone was waiting for since Osabu announced it back at Anime Matsuri, in 2018. The two-part Sailor Moon Crystal movies project officially got a name, Sailor Moon Eternal, and they will be in theaters in 2020! The teaser trailer showed new visuals by the returning character designer from the classic 90s anime, Kazuko Tadano, and returning series director from Season III, Chiaki Kon.
The script writer for the movies will be done by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu, who also scripted episodes of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure series, Beyblade, PriPra, and X TV series, among many more.
The teaser trailer also revealed the returning seiyuu cast from the Sailor Moon Crystal series, which you can see below. The movies will cover the Dream Arc of the series, so it’ll be interesting to see where the first part ends and second starts.
If you want to learn more about Kazuko Tadano, please look at Tuxedo Unmasked’s article about her recent interview, in which she kinda teased this movie, here. For now, enjoy the teaser trailer for it!
I also like to thank @alita97 for being at the event to deliver this awesome news for us!
