In a very quick turnaround after their Japanese theatrical debut, Netflix announced plans to bring the two-part Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal the Movie to its streaming service globally, with a premiere date set for June 3, 2021.
Based on the Dream Arc of Naoko Takeuchi’s original manga, the Netflix page is now live for the movies, so you can go ahead and set a notification so you don’t forget about the launch date. There’s also a trailer that does an awesome job of highlighting the global love for Takeuchi’s series.
Netflix describes the films and outlines the main staff:
The upcoming adventures are set in April, when the cherry blossoms are in bloom and Tokyo is in a festive mood as it celebrates the largest Total Solar Eclipse of the century. As the new moon obscures the sun and gradually dims its light, Usagi and Chibi-Usa encounter Pegasus, who is in search of the chosen Maiden who can break the seal of the Golden Crystal. Meanwhile, a mysterious troupe called the Dead Moon Circus appears in town who’s nefarious plan is to scatter the nightmare incarnations known as Lemures, seize the ‘Legendary Silver Crystal,’ rule over the moon and the earth, and eventually dominate the entire universe…
