Yasuharu Takanashi, the composer for the upcoming Sailor Moon Eternal films, sent a Tweet including a video of him recording some music on November 22nd. Twitter user @CCTakato noticed that the monitor seen in the background of this clip showed Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon. It is plausible that this clip is of music for the first Sailor Moon Eternal movie which will be released in Japan on September 11th 2020. Not much of the music can be heard, which is probably deliberate. Check out the footage in the embedded Tweet below.

Though it’s hard to make out the image on the screen it does look like it’s Sailor Moon near the middle and Sailor Chibi Moon on the bottom right. I messed around with the image a bit to try to clear it up and here’s the best I could come up with.
Is this the first still of Sailor Moon Eternal that we’re seeing? It looks like they were watching footage while recording their music, though in this case the video appears to be paused.
How reliable is this? Let’s not forget that Yasuharu Takanashi is the one that told us to expect Sailor Moon Crystal season 4 in 2018! What do you think?
You’re probably right. But wow, that sounds rough. Maybe it’s Dead Moon music?
“that sounds rough”
Normal. That sounds like Toei.
*I’m already far far away*
Both you and Noname9q nailed it .
Japanese people are so secret when it comes to their upcoming artistic productions that they always tease only tiny bits of them, so that the final product remains, until the end, a complete surprise to everyone in the world. So here, we have musicians tuning up their instruments to show us that Sailor Moon Eternal music is currently being made, but nothing more. It’s quite frustrating but also quite logical and respectful at the same time.
Oops, sorry Saintfighteraqua, my long comment just below was for everyone, but meant to be posted under Joe’s comment .
And I think I’ve just noticed that your hint about Dead Moon music is a joke (correct me if I’m wrong)?
Sorry, these days I’m like “The lights are on, but nobody’s home.” XD
*my long comment just below* = no, just ABOVE.
Now I think it’s more “The light bulbs have burned out AND nobody’s home.”
(((In French we say that “One does not have light on every floor.”)))
Not totally a joke, it did sound sort of like something you’d hear inside the Dead Moon tent, like the instruments coming to life and then getting a bit chaotic.
Wasn’t meant as an insult either as I figured this is just them warming up for the actual thing. I believe this could be to show us they are starting on the music now.
“Not totally a joke, it did sound sort of like something you’d hear inside the Dead Moon tent, like the instruments coming to life and then getting a bit chaotic.”
Ooooooh yes, I see what you meant now . Thank you for the explanation!
Oops! Sorry I missed this. Thanks for clarifying, Aurélia.
Curses! I can’t even see what they’re up to in my crystal ball! Curses!
Try with Beryl’s crystal ball then .
True, true. Even though I honestly love the music for Crystal a lot.
Yeah, I love it too! But a bad joke about Toei is always welcome . Poor Toei, targeted by so many clichés…
Also: *I’m already far far away… on your broomstick. Eheheheheheheh!*
*Wow, I’ve never been so high… The view from here is so… stoning.*
I’m impressed. Had no idea you could “drive stick”!
Eheh! I *stick* with our ancestral witchy tradition! Automatic broomstick is not for me.
and by blurry i ment the picture kinda blurry because i need to draw a picture to compare it
To me it sounded more like musicians tuning up their instruments before the actual performance.
I think exactly the same.
They’re just tuning up your heartstrings, bee hive!
Because I don’t have a heart, I can make a heartless retort! So, Elphaba! How does it feel to have a ton of teenagers insist “Wicked” is the true and best incarnation of Oz?
That wannabe might have her devoted followers. But does she have a pack of wolves, a murder of crows, a swarm of bees, thousands of “loyal” Winkies and the power to summon the Winged Monkeys not once, not twice but three times?
Let her try to top me, just try! XD
I like it.
This is definetely some tuning before actual recording. These two are def Chibi Moon and Sailor Moon in I will punish you pose. While it is very blurry the proportions looks a lot more elongated than in the concept art and Chibi Moon eyes appear a bit different. Hope we are seeing a trailer soon and they were actually watching it.
Oh, I didn’t think of that, it could definitely be a trailer.
I guess they are working on trailer and music for it. I mean it is probably too optimistc, but if he has some footage it might be a trailer. People asked about it in comments, but he hasn’t replied, sadly.
There is some written stuff as well. So it might be the upcoming trailer.
more like a 2nd Trailer that will air in May 2020
NEWSFLASH: Sailor Moon R Movie is now on Crunchyroll
Thanks!! Perfect timing, too; a friend and I were just wondering that!
You’re Welcome Joseph but i want adam to make the post about it
