On a side note, I'm kinda concerned they won't release a 90's anime version of the Crisis Moon Compact now.
Also I personally find the color scheme of the Kaleidomoon Scope dissappointing. Literally every item in the latter half of the manga is just white and gold.P-:
In fact, all the items were white and gold FROM THE START. I just looked at some pages of kanzenban in Dark Kingdom arc. The Moon Stick (ss1) is white and gold too. The Moon Rod (ss2) is pure white and the Cutie Moon Rod (ss3) has the white body.

Do you think they spend this much time animating extra scenes, which will be added and released as divided episodes later?
I doubt there will be extra scenes in this case, but it still involve a lot of planning and thinking of ways to present it. In this case they will most likely make opening and ending, assuming the movie has just montage footingbor have them incorporated. The licensing issues might be a factor in the decision of later release date.

They probably wouldn't do it that way. I think if they did it like Puella as episodes and then made it a movie with extra.

We can only hope that they do as they did with Puella and make the movies at least 2 hours. The first two are just episodes touched up but they run at about two hours or a little over and Rebellion also is close to two hours

Either Toei has it's hands very full or this is gonna be a long film and they need a much bigger team to have everything done as smoothly as possible & to make sure agreements are being met... hopefully to get the appropriate subs/translation s.

I am pretty sure we can follow the story even in Japanese. I was thinking of travelling there next year, so I might get to see it. Still not sure. Never been outside Europe and my Japanese is too basic for such a endeavor. I hope we get more artwork revealed soon. I want to see Mamoru and Nehellenia as well as side shots of the inners. The side shots were such struggle for their animators.

I am literally going insane on that part. Not only do I want to Nehellania and Mamoru, but I want to see the Trio and Quartet.. I just had this wicked vision of Jun Jun speaking. Now we must find out the VAs.

The new Queen Nehellania will have to fill the role over the former, who was a great actress, capturing the insanity & desperation of Nehellania well.

I sorta hope the Inners get their trademark kills. We really miss out on establishing them as deadly opponents sometimes.

TigerEye tried to eat REI! He should be punished on behalf of Mars for that!

You can look at the art book cover for Cutie Moon Rod.

This is the first time the rod appears.

Two thoughts:

What if they not just re-use Moonlight Densetsu but also other iconic tracks from the 90s anime? If they would play a version of the track „All against Nehellenia“ when Eternal SM defeats Nehellenia I would cry and die of goosebumps.


Thought 2: What if Sailor Moon Eternal will be a great anime and even win awards?

I doubt it will get any awards as it is not original story. As for the music - the Crystal composer is sadly back, so the music will be his doing. I like him, and Im in the minority that loves Crystal OST, but it is not very original. Let's hope he puts more effort for a film.

His music is hit or miss to me. Sometimes it sounds nice and other times it sounds a bit tooo "generic" but overall, he's not that bad. The original OST for the Sailor Moon movies were amazing, especially the S movie.
I love the original soundtrack, it is such a wonderful bag of different styles, quite creative! the Crystal OST has some good catchy tracks and some very boring and generic ones. Since i don‘t watch PreCure I don‘t associate it with it. But It could be possible that the composer adapts or re-arranges some titles from the 90s, right?

He might get inspired, but I doubt he can rearrange it, after all there is some copyright going on. I don't even think Moon Light Densetsu will be used and just put it in the teaser, as we have no artists revealed. I love the old show OST and I listen to some tracks all the time, but I hope they won't redo some for the films. Crystal/Eternal should be its own thing, they already redraw some attacks and transformation for season 3 and I find this lazy. Part of the whole thing is the new aspect, so they should keep it fresh. Fans can always do sone scenes with some of the old tracks.

The sad thing is, they copied the 90s attacks or outer senshi transformations badly, they are not even on par with the original. Ridiculous.
Couldn't they have done original animations for those new attacks/transformations, instead of copying them also? At least the Inners had somewhat original movements to their transformations, hell, even in seasons 1-2, they had unique pen grabs. And in season 1-2, despite the fact they were animated horribly, at least they tried to give the Inners new movements for their attacks, granted, they still failed miserably.

The only original 90's music I'd want to hear would be Moonlight Densetsu and maybe the Sailor Star Song, just those opening themes, nothing more.

I really would appreciate if the Eternal movies bring together the best of both worlds, 90s anime and Crystal. and so far it goes that direction. I am very optimistic, if Toei and Deen hire their best people. Is Toei working these days on other films/projects? What capacities do they have? Who of the staff, that worked on the 90s anime, might be back?

If they bring some of the old animators, my money is on Hisashi Kagawa. He was character design for S and SuperS films and Toei still hires him for Precure films. While he did some episodes here and there, he is mostly working on their films, so it is a possibility. But I doubt they will go this route. They will probably leave the majority to Deen, for better or worse.
