The official website for Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Cosmos the Movie, the two-part anime film project adapting the final “Shadow Galactica” arc of Naoko Takeuchi‘s original Sailor Moon manga, announced on Tuesday that The Three Lights will create a new song for the films’ limited edition Blu-ray Disc/DVD release in Japan on December 20. The website streamed a video that features The Three Lights’ insert song “Nagareboshi e” for the film as well as the new song announcement at the end:
The Three Lights are an in-story idol group in the films. Saori Hayami plays Taiki Kō/Sailor Star Maker, Marina Inoue plays Seiya Kō/Sailor Star Fighter, and Ayane Sakura plays Yaten Kō/Sailor Star Healer.
The first film opened on June 9, and the second opened on June 30.
Tomoya Takahashi (Den-noh Coil, Gatchaman Crowds) directed both films at Toei Animation. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (all six JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure parts, Land of the Lustrous, PriPara) returned to pen the scripts. Kazuko Tadano, the character designer for the original Sailor Moon anime, continued to design the characters. Yasuharu Takanashi (Naruto Shippūden) returned to compose the music. Yumiko Soraga was the art director.
Daoko performs the theme song “Tsuki no Hana” (Moon Flower).
Netflix began streaming the two-part Pretty Guardians Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie (Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon Eternal) anime film project worldwide in June 2021. The two-part film project takes the place of a fourth season for Sailor Moon Crystal. The films cover the “Dead Moon” arc of Takeuchi’s original manga.
The first film was originally scheduled to open in Japan on September 11, 2020, but was delayed to January 2021 due to the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Japan. The second film opened in Japan in February 2021. The films marked 25 years since the franchise last had a work that screened in theaters in Japan.
The third Sailor Moon Crystal season, which featured a new staff and focused on the Death Busters arc (also called the Infinity arc), premiered in April 2016. Crunchyroll, Niconico, and Hulu streamed the season. The three services and others streamed the first two Sailor Moon Crystal seasons overseas as they debuted online in Japan. Netflix is also streaming Sailor Moon Crystal.
Viz Media licensed all three seasons for release in North America. The company released the first season of Sailor Moon Crystal on DVD and DVD/Blu-ray Disc combo pack in August 2016, the second season in February 2017, and the third season in December 2017.
Viz Media‘s release of Sailor Moon Stars, the fifth and final season of the original Sailor Moon anime that adapts the “Shadow Galactica” arc, marked the first time the season got a home video release in North America. Sailor Moon Stars originally aired for 34 episodes from 1996 to 1997.
