🌙2 New Sailor Moon Anime Movies Announced
Sailor Moon Cosmos Part 1 and 2 are coming to theatres in 2023
Hey there and welcome to the latest volume of my Sailor Moon newsletter!
There’s some absolutely massive Sailor Moon news to cover so let’s dive right in. A follow-up to the two Sailor Moon Eternal movies has been officially announced!!
Sailor Moon Cosmos is a new movie project set for release in theatres in Japan in 2023. It’s essentially the fifth part of the Sailor Moon Crystal adaption of the Sailor Moon manga and will cover the Stars Arc.
Like Sailor Moon Eternal, Sailor Moon Cosmos will also be split into two separate parts. Details on the international release hasn’t been confirmed yet though odds are that it’ll at least be picked up for streaming by Netflix so I wouldn’t be too worried.
That image that you see above? That’s part of the official teaser poster for the Sailor Moon Cosmos movies. You can view the full version below.
Looking for a textless version of the Sailor Moon Cosmos teaser poster? Drew Kanzumba in the Moonkitty.NET Facebook Group tracked down a high res version on the official site. Careful though. It’s MASSIVE.
Oh, and there’s also an official Sailor Moon Cosmos teaser trailer with footage and voice acting. Check it out here.
Speaking of the voice acting, it’s been confirmed that the recording for both films has already finished so they’re WAY ahead of schedule. This makes me wonder if they started production before Eternal premiered. 🤔
The Sailor Moon Cosmos reveal was made during a Sailor Moon special live event. Besides the Cosmos announcement and teaser trailer, most of the stream consisted of general discussions about Sailor Moon’s history though there were some other minor announcements.
New official Naoko Takeuchi artwork was revealed for the Sailor Moon Museum exhibit which is set to run from July through to December at Roppongi Hills in Tokyo, Japan.
The Shining Moon Compact is getting a re-release sometime in the near future.
And a Q posket Special Collaboration Book is on the way with a cover featuring the prototype Sailor Moon design.
Pretty exciting and that wasn’t the only Sailor Moon news that’s come out these past few weeks.

The first volume of the Naoko Takeuchi Collection version of the Sailor Moon manga comes out in the USA this week. It’s basically a smaller, cheaper version of the Eternal Edition. Great for those on a budget. Unfortunately it seems to have been delayed until July at least in Australia.
The Prisim on Ice Sailor Moon ice-skating show has been delayed once again until 2023. I’ve updated my Sailor Moon 2022 schedule accordingly.
Jay Jay’s has added more official Sailor Moon merch like a new men’s tee, a Sailor Moon tarot card tee, a moon kitty hoodie, and a pair of moon kitty trackpants.
Pre-orders for the upcoming Prince Endymion Figuarts Mini are now open! If you’re a collector, I’d pick one up ASAP as Endymion merch is rare.
Pre-orders for the Princess Serenity model in the same figure line are also now open.
Sailor Moon voice actress, Erica Mendez, will be attending Anime Central this month.
The May 2022 issue of With (that’s the name of the magazine) comes with official Sailor Moon stickers and an exclusive interview with Naoko Takeuchi herself. You can buy the issue here.
Some new Sailor Moon merch is now available at Universal Studios Japan.
DON’T FORGET! Sailor Moon The Super Live is happening this month at Japan Parade in Central Park, New York.
I recently did a poll on Twitter about IRL Moon theories and 56% of you guys believe the Moon was inhabited in the past while 21.4% think someone could still be there today. Full results on this fun poll here.
That poll was inspired by this cool video about Moon theories. Worth a watch if you’re as into ancient civilisations as I am.

I love these official Sailor Moon coasters.
Australia is getting a full series Blu-ray box set of all five seasons of the Sailor Moon anime in November this year. Australia’s already had full season box sets of each season which is why we’re getting this before the USA which has just announced its full season Sailor Moon anime sets.
OG Sailor Moon voice actors, Linda Ballantyne and Katie Griffin shared some photos of a recent con appearance on Twitter.
