posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official email magazine for the third new Sailor Moon musical revealed on Friday that Sailor Uranus, Sailor Neptune, Sailor Pluto, and Sailor Saturn will all join the cast. The musical, titled Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon -Un Nouveau Voyage- (Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: A New Voyage), will also add the members of the Death Busters group — including Professor Tomoe, Kaolinite, Mistress 9, Witches 5, and more — to the cast.
Additionally, the newsletter announced that Kokoro Kuge and Airi Kanda will return from last year's Petite Étrangère musical to play Chibi-Usa/Sailor Chibi Moon, and Mikako Ishii will also return to play Setsuna Meiō/Sailor Pluto.
The website and an upcoming issue of Nakayoshi will both reveal the musical's full cast on June 3.
Satomi Okubo (Sailor Moon), Kanon Nanaki (Sailor Mars), Yu Takahashi (Sailor Jupiter), and Shiori Sakata (Sailor Venus) debuted as their roles in 2013's Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon -La Reconquista- musical. Momoyo Koyama replaced Miyabi Matsuura in 2014's Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon -Petite Étrangère- musical as Sailor Mercury.
The five actresses will graduate from the cast after Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon -Un Nouveau Voyage- finishes its run.
Actress Yūga Yamato will reprise her role as Mamoru Chiba/Tuxedo Mask in the third musical, and will continue to do so in future plays.
Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon -Un Nouveau Voyage- will run between September 18 and 27 at the AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo venue, and then from October 2 to 4 at the Sankei Hall Breeze theater in Osaka. Readers of Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine can purchase tickets in advance, and normal tickets will be available for purchase beginning on July 26 at 10 a.m. JST. S seat tickets will cost 7,500 yen (about US$62), while A seat tickets will retail for 5,800 yen (about US$48). Those who subscribe to the official email magazine will also be able to purchase tickets starting on May 21.
