Viz Media announced at Anime Central last year that it licensed both the original Sailor Moon anime franchise and the new Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal anime series. The company then announced the new English dub cast for the original Sailor Moon anime at last year's Anime Expo. Viz announced at Anime Boston in April that its English Sailor Moon cast will reprise their roles for Sailor Moon Crystal.
This year's Anime Expo will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 2 to July 5.
