It’s Sailor Moon… on ICE! That’s the gist of the upcoming Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: Prism on Ice performance, which is the first ice show based on Naoko Takeuchi‘s beloved series. A press conference was held in Japan this week, bringing with it the announcement that Evgenia Medvedeva—the 20-year-old Russian two-time Olympic silver medalist figure skater—has been cast in the lead as Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon.
