Stage musical focuses on plot similar to Sailor Moon R

The 20th anniversary Sailor Moon website announced plans for a second musical this summer. The musical will take place in the far-future of Crystal Tokyo and detail the battle against the Black Moon clan.

Cast and more details will be announced in Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine and on the franchise's 20th anniversary website. The first all-female revival musical "Sailor Moon: La Reconquista" debuted in September.

The previous musical starred:

17-year-old Satomi Ōkubo as Sailor Moon

16-year-old Miyabi Matsuura as Sailor Mercury

16-year-old Kanon Nanaki as Sailor Mars

22-year-old Yū Takhashi as Sailor Jupiter

21-year-old Shiori Sakata as Sailor Venus

Yūga Yamato as Tuxedo Mask

Takeuchi launched the original manga in Nakayoshi in 1992, and the hit anime premiered that same year. The manga inspired 27 earlier stage musical runs with over 800 performances between 1993 and 2005. Toei's new Sailor Moon Crystal anime series will premiere in July.
