Megan Fox would like to act in a live action Sailor Moon movie

Megan Fox

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly actress Megan Fox mentioned that she was interested in being in a live action Sailor Moon movie.

After having done movie versions of Transformers and now Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Megan Fox was asked what other cartoon she would like to be involved with a live action movie of. After mentioning an interest in Gundam Wing, Jurassic Park and Thudercats she added the following:

Sailor Moon. That could feasibly be made into a live action movie. I don’t know how many Americans were into that. I was into that, but I don’t know how huge it was here. That’s not actually a bad idea.

Keep in mind of course there are no plans to actually make such a movie. This is just something Megan Fox mentioned being interested in along with many other franchises she was a fan of when she was younger.

What do you think? Is a Sailor Moon live action film starring Megan Fox “Not actually a bad idea” or just a way to ruin more childhoods? Who should she play? She doesn’t seem to look much like Sailor Moon but she might be able to pull off Sailor Mars.

A new Sailor Moon Musical coming this summer will take place in Crystal Tokyo and feature the Black Moon Clan

Sailor Moon - Crystal Tokyo devastated

A new Sailor Moon musical has been announced on the Sailor Moon official site. Not many details have been given but we do know that this musical will follow the Black Moon story arc of the Sailor Moon manga or the Sailor Moon R season of the anime which takes place in 30th century Crystal Tokyo following the battle with the Black Moon Clan. Though Chibiusa is not mentioned by name it stands to reason that this musical will feature her introduction as well as her transformation into Black Lady. No details about the cast have been revealed but the announcement mentions that this will be announced on the site in the near future.

The 30th Century Crystal Tokyo

This will be the second modern Sailor Moon musical following Sailor Moon La Reconquista which played last September.

Note: This article previously mentioned the musical would take place in September. As of now the only information we have about the date is that it will be this summer.

Sailor Moon’s Disguise Pen toy coming this July

Sailor Moon Moonlight Memory Series Disguise Pen

Another great cosplay accessory is coming this July. Sailor Moon’s Disguise Pen, known as the Luna Pen in the English dub, has been announced on the official Sailor Moon site. The toy is called the “Moonlight Memory Series Light Disguise Pen”. It’s a high quality replica which lights up and actually writes! Unlike Usagi’s pen it does not appear that this gives collectors the ability to transform into a costume of their choice.

Sailor Moon Moonlight Memory Series Disguise Pen really writes!

The pen will be available for preorder later this week from Bandai Premium Bandai for 4860 yen (about $47 US) and will be released in July. It is currently also up for preorder at CD Japan for 6400 yen (about $62 US).

Last week, March 25th, volumes 9 and 10 of the Sailor Moon Manga Complete Editions were released in Japan. Volume 9 features Endymion and Serenity on the cover while volume 10 features all 10 Sailor Guardians. This concludes the story of the Sailor Moon manga with the Stars story arc featuring Galaxia and the Starlights. Volumes 11 and 12 of the manga will be released later this month and will likely contain Code Name Sailor V and the Parallel Sailor Moon story, as that’s all that has not been published to date. Parallel Sailor Moon was originally published only in the Materials Collection Artbook but also added with the 2004 edition of the manga which is what we recently saw translated into English by Kodansha Comics USA. As with other volumes this complete edition features all colour pages previously only seen in the pages of Nakayoshi where they were originally published.

With most of these two books dedicated to wrapping up the main story we only have one side story included, that being the final Chibiusa’s Picture Diary story, the Secret of the Hammer Price Shrine. This story has Chibiusa and Hotaru getting into high jynx with their trendy friends Naruru, Naru’s sister, and Ruruna who dress up as Sailor Guardians who fans refer to as Sailor Channel and Sailor Guccicci.
