The official website for Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon Eternal (Pretty Guardians Sailor Moon Eternal The MOVIE), a new two-part anime film project for Sailor Moon, opened on Thursday, and is listing that Studio DEEN is animating the film alongside Toei Animation.
The first film will open in Japan in 2020. Original manga creator Naoko Takeuchi is credited with the original work and with supervision. Chiaki Kon is returning from the anime's third season to direct the two films. Kazuko Tadano, the character designer for the original Sailor Moon anime, is designing the characters. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure TV anime all five parts, Land of the Lustrous, PriPara) is penning the scripts. Toei will distribute the film.
The two-part film project will take the place of a fourth season for Sailor Moon Crystal. The films will cover the "Dead Moon" arc of Takeuchi's original manga.
