Sailor Moon is one of those franchises with lasting power. The manga popularized the magical girl trope and transformation when it debuted in 1991. That along with so many other reasons cemented its place in pop culture. Now 30 years later, we’re still getting new Sailor Moon stories. And Netflix has some news about the latest installment. Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie Part 1 & Part 2 will premiere globally on Netflix (outside of Japan) on June 3, 2021. And you can watch the full trailer now.
The synopsis for Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie Part 1 & Part 2 reads as follows:
The Pretty Guardians of Love and Justice return in an all-new double-feature where beautiful dreams come alive! Join all your favorite Sailor Guardians as they battle the mysterious Dead Moon Circus and awaken dazzling new powers in these films based on the popular Dream arc of Naoko Takeuchi’s iconic saga.
The Dream arc focuses on the Sailor Guardians’ growth—both as teenagers and as guardians. Plus it includes some very cute Chibiusa and Helios moments.
Fumio Osano, Naoko Takeuchi’s longtime editor, said in a statement, “We have long been hoping to bring Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie to people around the world since the initial release in Japan in January and February, 2021. Today, we are excited to bring these movies to our fans through Netflix. Amidst these challenging times, it is our greatest pleasure for viewers to feel courage and hope by watching this story about love and justice.”
The premiere is part of Netflix‘s overall push in the anime department. They’ve acquired a ton of existing anime, and they’re working on their own series as well. The streamer will debut Yasuke on April 29.
