Here is the interview. Click on the picture to zoom in.
It says there will be close-up to some episodes. They use the word "episode". Hmm??

I hope someone could translate the whole thing for us. What do you mean by close up? All I got is that Haruka and Michiru won't appear on part 1. The most important part is the last blue section from the character designer, but I am too low level to get the whole thing.

This is an interview between Usagi and Luna (the metaphor of producer).

- Like Black Moon arc, this is the story in which Chibiusa plays the main factor.
- This is the first movie, so we have to wait for the design of Haruka group later.
- Everyone is concerned about how long the first movie will cover, and which episode they will close up. (I translate from the katakana "episode" and "close up". I think they want to say what part they will emphasize). They already talk about the episode Hotaru is awaken, and they let us guest where it will be placed in the movie.

Hmm... I have a feeling this is a hint they will mix the outer's chapter here and there throught the movie. Hmm... But then again, as they are saying something about they won't show the designs because this is the first part of the film. Then it might be the begining of the second film. Gosh, I was so against the movie format but it is actually quite exciting. Let's hope a lot more is comming for the February anniversary! As for the close up they probably mean which chapters they will cover in part 1.

I have the impression that the japanese fanbase is not really connected with the global community. seems like there is little exchange, otherwise such an interview would be translated and spread immediately on the web. I mean, this interview is super interesting, it’s official and contains some new infos.

thanks @Crystal Moon for the scan!

Its odd that they said Haruka and Michiru wont appear when they (and Setsuna) show in Ami, Rei and Makoto's memories during their respective chapters. I suppose they might cut that out especially since those scenes kinda didnt make sense from Infinity perspective

Or it is mistranslation or teasing. But these would make sense if presented as dreams rather than flashbacks.

We need a full translations of this pamphlet to understand those official news. When has it been released and how?
In Japanese, they use the long written form like that. What I wrote in the post above were the important thing you should care. The other part are what we already know: the solar eclipse blah blah blah, and Luna tells Usagi not to stay up late. The three bubbles below is the interview of the director, the story writter and the character designer. They say how happy they are blah blah blah. Before the character design is revealed, there were many worries about that, but she was happy because it was well received.

Usagi: I saw the picture in the news. There are 4 soldiers Ami, Rei, Mako and Minako. But I wonder if Haruka and Michiru will appear.

Luna: This is the first part, so................ Where to put the episode in which Hotaru is awaken is important.

Usagi: Uuh. It makes me concern. Should I ask the director and the writer?

Luna: Please wait until the release, Usagi. But it seems that everyone is talking a lot about which part the movie will end, and which episode it will focus.

^ Also, those red circles contain the messages from the VAs of Moon & Chibi Moon - nothing terrific in them too.

Maybe there'll be a full translation of it on the Miss Dream site, if not already so? :)

Haha I love this Q&A with Usagi and Luna. Usagi is so nosy, I can recognise her personality.

Well, I bet Hotaru‘s awakening will be some sort of forshadowing or cliffhanger element of the 1st film to make us excited. And for that they don‘t even have to show Haruka/Michiru. They can do something similar to how Hotaru has been introduced at the end of the holy grail episode...like...we see the house where the outer senshi live, we see Haruka‘s car...then we get a glimpse of Hotaru...and the audience is on HYPE.

This is actually a very good idea. I remember when at the vegining of Crystal s1 they always showed a glimpse of the new senshi or something that will come up in the next episode. Like Ami in the rain, Rei at the shrine, the Diamond treasure chest, Makoto talking about the storm that is comming. In a way Eternal is as exciting as the premier of Crystal. I cannot wait for more news. I can't believe something like this could make me as excited at the age of 28.

Same here and I‘m 35. I just read a summary of all the chapters of the Dream arc and it has a very episodic structure until the outer senshi enter. The screenwriter must have changed quite some things and the chronological order. I also don’t see „Moon Gorgeous Meditation“ happening 3 or more times in the first film, so I bet the happenings will be restructured or cut. And I‘m super excited to see how they do it.

Since I don‘t like like the Sailor princesses, I wouldn‘t mind if they cancell that, because it really doesn‘t serve at all and just rises questions.

I wonder: will we see a glimpse of Beryl/Metalia in the 2nd film?

Another thought: In what timeframe happen the events of the Dream Arc? A weekend? A week? A month? Seems like 4-5 days from the eclipse till the coronation.

I highly doubt they will cut the sailor princesses, as them visiting their respective castles is a plot point in the Stars arc.

They still can visit their castles without being called “princess” and without those prom night dresses. what’s anyway the point of princess serenity and kakyuu if all senshi are princesses anyway?

After watching PGSM I am optimistic that the supervision by Naoko will help to cut or add elements to give the whole story more depth and plausibility. The manga has here and there its weak points and I’m sure Naoko knows that 20 years after it has been published.

I personally love the dresses and I doubt they will skip that part as it is also good merchandise. They have some collabs with fashion brands and I bet they will be updated anyway.

I don't think we will see Metalia or Beryl in SME. Even in SMC3 (and in manga), there was a whole scene about the destruction of Silver Millennium, but neither of them appears. I just checked the manga again, Dark Kingdom isn't mentioned in arc 4.
Yes, it is mentioned. When Nehellenia talks about her curse and that's what destroyed the Silver Millennium.
Even if the name is not shown, it is up to the reader to understand that she was talking about the Dark Kingdom.

Even though not necessary, it would be nice to have a little nod/cameo of the dark kingdom arc. maybe showing only silhouettes of metalia or beryl...

did you guys know that script writer kazuyuki fudeyasu was responsible for photography for the first card captor sakura movie and vampire hunter d bloodlust? those two movies are great references and it gives me hope that the project is in good hands. kotono mitsuishi also stated that the team is working hard and puts a lot of love in the movies. i hope their working conditions are good.

So the first film will run in the japanese cinemas after the olympics. In any case I expect some presence of the franchise, since Sailor Moon is one of the official mascots. I also bet that Tadano-san was hired because international audience will recognize Sailor Moon easier and it will be more coherent with all the 90s related material that will be present.
