This might be a good sign tat te movie is i later srages so she can move to other projects. I mean she probably did her job by now, if they are releasing it in 2020.

Yeah, it's not really unheard of for people to work on multiple projects at once. Keep in mind that they're both most likely at very different points in production.
With the official SM website proudly showing off the teaser with it's character designs and release date the moment you enter, I doubt there's anything to be worried about.

I hope they replace it with trailer and exact date though. Once we have a time frame we can calm down and be more certain with it. I hadn't gone to the web site in a while and when the video poped up the first time i almost get a heart attack, before seeing it was the same teaser.

Yet again, it's kept being pushed back to the end of the queue whenever another new anime project pops up - that's all about their production priority & theoretically can go indefinitely.

To be fair she must have started working on this way before June 30th when they announced Eternal to be released next year, so there are probably no conflicting schedules, but it is still unfair how a project that was announced like a couple of weeks ago already has a promo video and for Crystal we got some concept art after 3 years...

Even if so, her work schedule for Sailor Moon might've been extended due to her preoccupation in other, higher-priority anime projects at the same period, & such extension theoretically can also go indefinitely, depending on whether there're yet other new projects of her popping up. lol

What is it about them pushing Sailor Moon back in terms of promos or being treated with such low priority and such? Sailor Moon wasn't a one-trick pegasus when it came out, and it shouldn't be treated like that in my eyes, considering its impact on being such a beloved anime/manga series that came out in the 90's not just in Japan but around the world, and was released in Toei Animation's prime.

I think the only reason Koyonno came back. Because she was the most popuar . As for the rest it made sense that they did a recast . It was a rebbot,and they were not the same characters in the 90 s anime .
I don't agree. I think it's pretty scummy Toei Animation got Kotono Mitsuishi back to reprise her role as the main character but didn't even bother to bring back any of the other original voice actors, like they wanted to have a whole new cast with the new versions of the Sailors, but also just bring back Kotono as Usagi/Sailor Moon solely for extra brownie points and nostalgia.

I can understand not having Chiyoko Kawashima reprise her roles as Shingo, Haruna-sensei and Setsuna/Sailor Pluto because she retired round about 19 years ago and now is 65 years old, nor Katsuji Mori as Nephrite considering he was 69-70 years old at the time, nor Kazuyuki Sogabe as Kunzite because he had passed away sadly in 2006, nor Kaneto Shiozawa return as Prince Diamond as he sadly died in 2000, nor Eiji Maruyama as Wiseman as he was 85 years old and sadly died a few months after the second season of Crystal ended, but seriously? Toei Animation couldn't bring back Aya Hisakawa (who actually was working on Saint Seiya: Soul of Gold at the same time Crystal was airing, and can still do Kero-chan's voice in Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card and Skuld's voice in Ah My Goddess, kinda get my picture?), Michie Tomizawa, Emi Shinohara, Rica Fukami, Keiko Han, Yasuhiro Takato, Kae Araki, Megumi Ogata, Masako Katsuki, Yūko Minaguchi, Shino Kakinuma, Keiichi Nanba, and Toru Furuya? If they could bring back Kotono, couldn't they have tried to go all the way and bring back much of the original cast as possible?

But nope, we instead had to have Cure Peace/Hisako Kanemoto as Crystal's Ami/Sailor Mercury, Ami Kochimizu/Cure Melody as Crystal's Makoto/Sailor Jupiter and Misato Fukuen/Cure Happy as Crystal's Chibi-Usa/Sailor Chibi Moon, probably only for the reason because "They're big name Pretty Cure voice actresses and Pretty Cure is our most popular current magical girl franchise so people will watch it!!" despite how miscasted those three sounded, only Ai Maeda/Cure Aqua sounded perfectly cast as Sailor Pluto in Crystal. While Fukuen, Kochimizu and Kanemoto are good actresses, they really were not good choices for those characters. Fukuen's Chibi-Usa/Chibi Moon didn't sound like a little girl but a woman pretending to be one, it was really grating, so forced to make it sound high pitched and unconvincing, only recognizable as Chibi Moon because of the "MOON PRISM POWER MAKE UP/PINK SUGAR HEART ATTACK" stuff, voicing little kids really doesn't seem to be a strong point. I felt Kochimizu's higher pitched voice and Jupiter's character didn't mix well in a way that's difficult to explain. I felt Kanemoto was too young to capture the vocal tone Ami has, and unlike with Yayoi/Cure Peace, her acting felt very bland, like she never had the appropriate vocal reaction to stuff that happened around her, like it didn't match with emotion/urgency that scenes would try to present.
