posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the Sailor Moon franchise revealed a commercial video and visual on Friday for Sailor Moon The Super Live, the new performance show based on Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon manga.
The show will get a preview run at AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo from August 31 to September 9, before having performances at the Palais des congrès de Paris on November 3-4 as part of the Japonismes 2018 event in Paris, France.
The Japonismes 2018 event celebrates 160 years of diplomatic relations between Japan and France. The large-scale Japanese culture event will take place between July 2018 and February 2019.
The Sailor Moon manga has been adapted for stage before, most recently in a series of musicals that began with Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon -La Reconquista- in 2013 to celebrate the manga's 20th anniversary. The fourth of the stage musicals, Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon -Le Mouvement Final-, ran in Japan from September to October last year. The musical's final performance, recorded on October 1 last year in Osaka, screened in theaters in the United States in March, and also screened in theaters in Canada in early April.
The franchise is getting a new stage musical starring members of the Nogizaka46 idol group. The musical ran at The Tennōzu Galaxy Theatre in Tokyo from June 8 to 24, and will run at the TBS Akasaka ACT Theater in Tokyo from September 21 to 30.
