The official website for the Sailor Moon franchise revealed a new trailer, poster visual, and cast member for the two-part Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon Eternal (Pretty Guardians Sailor Moon Eternal The MOVIE) anime film project on Friday. Actress Nanao will play Queen Nehellenia, leader of the Dead Moon.
The 60-second full trailer features the film's theme song "Tsukiiro Chainon" performed by the four-member Japanese idol group Momoiro Clover Z and the anime's five main voice cast members - Kotono Mitsuishi (Sailor Moon), Hisako Kanemoto (Sailor Mercury), Rina Sato (Sailor Mars), Ami Koshimizu (Sailor Jupiter), and Shizuka Ito (Sailor Venus).
Nanao, the 31-year-old fashion model/actress, who voiced Baccarat in the 2016 film, "One Piece Film Gold" as her first anime character role has been cast as the voice of Queen Nehelenia. She said, "Because it is my favourite series, I felt uneasy and conflicted at the same time, so I reread the original manga and rewatched the 1990s TV anime series. I also practised my vocal exercise and thought about how to say my character's lines at home for the recording session."
The upcoming films are based on the fourth "Dead Moon" arc of Naoko Takeuchi's original Sailor Moon manga and produced as the fourth arc of the Sailor Moon Crystal web anime series. Its first part is set to be released on January 8, 2021, then its second part will follow on February 11, 2021.
