A new Sailor Moon Eternal trailer and poster have been released!

Sailor Moon Eternal poster

With the first Sailor Moon Eternal movie only a few months away we finally have a new poster and trailer for the film! The poster shows us the Sailor Guardians in their Super forms with Sailor Chibi Moon in the foreground. Check out the new trailer embedded below.

There’s a lot going on in this trailer which gives us a lot of Ami, Rei, Makoto and Minako as well as our first glance at Nehelenia! We also have Helios and Pegasus as well as the new Sailor Moon Eternal theme song Moon Color Chainon by Momoiro Clover Z. We can see here that this is an adaptation of the Dream arc of the Sailor Moon manga with many of these scenes looking just like they do in the manga.
Some of the art in this trailer looks quite nice. What do you think of it?

New stills from the Sailor Moon Eternal film have been leaked and Rei is wearing Mamoru’s shirt

Sailor Moon Eternal - Rei, Mamoru, Usagi, Ami, Chibiusa, Makoto and Minako

We’ve got yet another early leak of images from the Sailor Moon Eternal films! This time there are three pictures! The first shows Rei, Mamoru, Usagi, Ami, Chibiusa, Makoto and Minako just hanging out. There’s an image of Chibiusa and Usagi sleeping in bed. We also have Helios and Chibiusa in an image which appears to be in a dream.

Sailor Moon Eternal - Chibiusa and Usagi

What’s important about these images? A few things. One might notice that Chibiusa is once again wearing Mamoru’s shirt while sleeping! This scene is right out of the manga as Chibiusa is envious of Usagi’s adult body, something which will have hilarious consequences. It’s not so uncommon for someone to wear Mamoru’s shirt of course as we’ve seen earlier in the series. Both Usagi and Chibiusa wear Mamoru shirts back in Act 19 the morning after it’s heavily insinuated that he and Usagi had sex. Does anyone else have a white man’s dress shirt anywhere in these leaks? Oh that’s right! Rei is wearing what could totally be one of Mamoru’s shirts as part of her lovely outfit. Perhaps Rei also got one of Mamoru’s shirts after spending an intimate night at his place.

Sailor Moon Eternal - Helios and Chibiusa

Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1 will be released in theatres in Japan on January 8th 2021 followed closely by Sailor Moon Eternal Part 2 on February 11th. The movies will follow the Dream arc of the Sailor Moon manga which was adapted loosely as Sailor Moon SuperS in the 90s Sailor Moon anime.

Check out these new stills from the Sailor Moon Eternal films

Sailor Moon Eternal sample stills

Update – 2020-08-14: The original post categorized these as a leak as I was not aware that these images had been posted to the official site.

A collection of 10 new stills from the first of the two Sailor Moon Eternal films has been posted to the Official Sailor Moon site. The post advertises a collaboration with Lawson convenience stores for a number of products. These 10 stills will be available from Lawson photocopiers. Though we’d already seen a couple of these, most of them seem to be new showing us single frames from animation which will likely be seen in Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1, which will be released in theatres on January 8th 2021.

Here’s a look at each still individually.

Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1 - Transformation Sequence - Super Sailor Chibi Moon and Super Sailor Moon

Super Sailor Chibi Moon and Super Sailor Moon posing. We had already seen this as part of footage which was already released so this is a higher quality image than the other samples.

Sailor Moon Eternal - Sailor Mercury poses

Sailor Mercury posing during her post transformation speech. The pose is similar to past seasons but the designs are updated.

Sailor Moon Eternal - Sailor Mars poses

Sailor Mars posing. Again the same pose with new designs. Her wrist seems a bit less limp if that makes sense.

Sailor Moon Eternal - Sailor Jupiter poses

Sailor Jupiter posing. Her hair isn’t holding as well as it has.

Sailor Moon Eternal - Sailor Venus poses

Sailor Venus posing. Her finger seems to keep getting bigger.

Sailor Moon Eternal trailer - Super Sailor Moon and Mamoru

Super Sailor Moon hugging a faceless Mamoru. We’ve seen this one already as well.

Sailor Moon Eternal - Pegasus and Chibiusa

Pegasus and Chibiusa. Many have pointed out that Pegasus is pony sized in these films.
He does seem to be a bit smaller than what we’d seen in the first Sailor Moon anime, but Chibiusa’s size is a bit inconsistent in Sailor Moon Crystal. An earlier image of Chibiusa and Pegasus which we saw made him look much smaller.

Sailor Moon Eternal - Helios

Helios. We’d seen his designs but this is the first actual frame of him that we’ve seen.

Sailor Moon Eternal - Artemis, Diana and Luna

Artemis, Diana and Luna. Luna’s eyes are now blue, while they were red in previous seasons. This may be so that her eye colour is consistent with human Luna who we will be saying likely in the second film which will be released on February 11th 2021.

Sailor Moon Eternal - The Amazon Trio

The Amazon Trio. Striking a pose!

At this point we are certainly seeing more and more of the art style. While I would like to see more of it in action these stills give us a decent indication of what we’re in for next year. What do you think?

Watch Super Sailor Moon and Super Sailor Chibi Moon’s transformation sequence from the Sailor Moon Eternal movie

Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1 - Transformation Sequence - Chibiusa and Usagi

Today, June 30th, is Usagi’s birthday! To celebrate a special video has been released on the official Sailor Moon site which includes a bunch of junk no one cares about and a clip from the upcoming Sailor Moon Eternal movie! The clip shows Super Sailor Moon and Super Sailor Chibi Moon’s transformation sequence. You can watch the clip by viewing the embedded YouTube video below. I’ve cued it up to 2 minutes and 44 seconds when the footage starts.

What can I saw about this footage? It is obviously nearly identical to the transformation from Sailor Moon SuperS. Surely the Sailor Moon Eternal film, like Sailor Moon SuperS, is based on the Dream arc of the Sailor Moon manga so we should expect there to be some similarities but this is next level. Every turn and pose is replicated in this footage. The designs are updated but these are the movements we have already seen. Not convinced? Check out this side by side comparison!

The rest of the footage is just a slideshow of products which I suppose fans may find mildly interesting!

Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1 - Transformation Sequence - Super Sailor Chibi Moon and Super Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1 will be out in theatres in Japan starting January 8th. The second part will be out the next month on February 11th. We don’t yet have any details about an international release of the film.

Keep reading for more screenshots of the video.

The release of Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1 is delayed from September 11th to January 8th due to COVID-19. Part 2 is coming February 11th.

Sailor Moon Eternal poster

An announcement posted on the Sailor Moon Official Site has mentioned that the release of the upcoming Sailor Moon Eternal film has been delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1 was originally scheduled to be released in theatres in Japan starting on September 11th 2020 but this release date has now been pushed back to January 8th 2021. In addition to this we also now have a release date for Part 2 of the film, which will be released on February 11th 2021.

We currently have no indication of how or when the film will be released outside of Japan. September 11th was less than three months away when this delay was announced, but we had gotten no news about a simultaneous international release. Were this something which had been planned, I suspect we may have gotten some news about it by now.

Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1 will cover the first half of the Dream Arc of the Sailor Moon manga. Part 2 will cover the second half. We hadn’t gotten much in the way of details about the second film but with the movie’s release coming up so quickly after the first film, it seems likely that we might get some details about it soon.

I hope none of you had any plans to be in Japan by September of this year! It seems a bit early to be travelling due to the ongoing pandemic. Hopefully the situation will have improved enough by January that some of you are able to travel to see the film and that fans in Japan are able to make it to theatres in safety. While theatres have started to gradually start opening up in Japan and around the world recently, this still presents a risk and movie goers are taking many precautions while attending screenings.

Stay safe and stay healthy everyone!
