The first Sailor Moon movie in 26 years is coming to Netflix. On Tuesday, the streaming platform announced that Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal: The Movie Part 1 and Part 2 will both make their global debut outside of Japan on June 3, 2021.
The films — which premiered in Japan in Jan. and Feb. 2021, respectively — are a continuation of Sailor Moon Crystal, the 2014 reboot of the seminal 1992 anime. Crystal strives to be a more faithful adaptation of the original manga by Naoko Takeuchi. Here’s a synopsis, per Netflix:
The upcoming adventures are set in April, when the cherry blossoms are in bloom and Tokyo is in a festive mood as it celebrates the largest Total Solar Eclipse of the century. As the new moon obscures the sun and gradually dims its light, Usagi and Chibi-Usa encounter Pegasus, who is in search of the chosen Maiden who can break the seal of the Golden Crystal. Meanwhile, a mysterious troupe called the Dead Moon Circus appears in town whose nefarious plan is to scatter the nightmare incarnations known as Lemures, seize the ‘Legendary Silver Crystal,’ rule over the moon and the earth, and eventually dominate the entire universe…
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal: The Movie Parts 1 and 2 will premiere on Netflix June 3.
