We’ve got more cast details and our first look at Princess Kakyuu, Sailor Galaxia and Chibi Chibi from the upcoming Sailor Moon Cosmos films. The movies will start Nana Mizuki as Princess Kakyuu, Megumi Hayashibara as Sailor Galaxy and Kotono Mitsuishi as Chibi Chibi.
Nana Mizuki, the voice of Sailor Kakyuu, is a voice actor known for such roles as Hinata Hyuga in Naruto, Tsubomi Hanasaki in Heartcatch Precure! and Ann Takamaki in Persona 5.
Megumi Hayashibara, the voice of Sailor Galaxia, is a well known veteran voice actor. Some of her more memorable roles include Rei Ayanami and Pen Pen in Evangelion, Pidgeotto and Pidgeot in Pokémon, Ai Amano in Video Girl Ai, Lina Inverse in Slayers, Faye Valentine in Cowboy Bebop and Ai Haibara in Detective Conan.
Fans will surely recognize Kotono Mitsuishi, the voice of Chibi Chibi, as providing the voice of Sailor Moon in both the original Sailor Moon anime and Sailor Moon Crystal. By providing the voice for Chibi Chibi this continues the tradition from the original Sailor Moon anime of having Kotono Mitsuishi provide the voices of both Sailor Moon and Chibi Chibi. As Sailor Moon Cosmos will more closely follow the story of the manga than the original anime this will make sense considering Chibi Chibi’s true identity.
What do you think of the designs for these characters? Are you excited for this new cast?

I think an anime series that take place after the Stars arc would be nice.
What else is there left to do after this except making original anime content?
Bring back the live action series!
How about no
Dance-fighting with tambourines is from an bygone era of television merchandising that no one needs to relive
I think this pretty much covers all of the important casting announcements for the principal roles in this arc. The seiyuu for the Animamates will probably get some media coverage at a certain point, but I’m assuming the Sailor Quartet and Wiseman will be voiced by the same people as before.
All of them will almost certainly be asked to sing for this movie. The song collection should be very exciting.
That’s something else.
Why didn’t you translate any of the interviews smh

Megumi Hayashibara is legitimately JP Jessie / Musashi in pokemon, a way bigger role than Pidgeotto and Pidgeot! A role she’s filled for the *entire run*!
