After getting delayed due to COVID-19, the first of two Sailor Moon Eternal movies is now showing in Japan. And with the second movie still looming, Momoiro Clover Z’s official YouTube channel has released a brand new music video featuring its theme song, “Tsukiiro Chainon”. Since MomoClo and Sailor Moon have huge international audiences, the video falso eatures subtitles in English, Chinese, Korean, and Spanish.
The second movie will premiere on February 11. They originally planned to release the first movie in Japan on September 11. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed both movies. Meanwhile, the staff also released a brand new key visual featuring both Inner Senshii and Outer Senshii.
Much of the cast from the Sailor Moon Crystal TV anime will be returning for the movie. They are:
- Kotono Mitsuishi as Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon

The staff also confirmed that Yoshitsugu Matsuoka will be joining the cast as Helios/Pegasus in the movie. Actress Nanao will also be joining the cast as Queen Nehellenia, leader of the Dead Moon.
The films celebrate the Sailor Moon franchise’s silver or 25th anniversary. It will serve as a direct sequel to the TV anime and will be adapting the manga’s Dead Moon arc. And speaking of the manga, Mangaka Naoko Takeuchi isn’t just credited for the original work, but she’s also supervising the movie overall. Chiaki Kon will be directing both movies over at Toei Animation.
