Chiaki Kon returns from 3rd season to direct films of "Dead Moon" arc

The official website for the Sailor Moon franchise revealed on Friday that the fourth season of the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal anime series will be a two-part theatrical anime project. The films will cover the "Dead Moon" arc of Naoko Takeuchi's original manga. Chiaki Kon is returning from the anime's third season to direct the two films.

The staff of the anime originally made the announcement at the "25th Anniversary Usagi Birthday Event" in Tokyo on Friday. The event is also being held on Saturday and Sunday.

The official website for the 25th anniversary of the franchise revealed in January that Sailor Moon Crystal was getting a sequel.

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.

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 last August, and released the second season on February 28.
