A two-part anime film titled Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Cosmos will premiere sometime in early summer 2023. A new key visual teases the forthcoming film series, with Sailor Moon sitting atop a roof, overlooking Tokyo with white wings. 

The production team also released a 45-second PV teaser trailer with Sailor Moon voice actress Kotono Mitsuishi narrating about her lead character’s role in the film. 

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Cosmos will be directed by Tomoya Takahashi (Hitoribocchi no Marumaruseikatsu in-between animation supervisor). Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (In the Land of Leadale) is writing the screenplay and Kazuko Tadano (Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie) is handling the film’s character designs. Yumiko Kuga (Deaimon: Recipe for Happiness) of Studio Jack is the art director and Yasuharu Takanashi (Bucchigire!) is composing the musical score. Toei Animation and Studio DEEN are in charge of the animation production for both films. 

Another two-part film series titled Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie premiered globally on Netflix last June. The films adapt the “Dream Arc” from Naoko Takeuchi’s original manga series, who also contributed as chief supervisor for both parts.

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 who’s 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…
