We already have PGSM, why do you guys think they would ever do another Sailor Moon live action in Japan if their first attempt apparently flopped enough for Toei to forget it ever existed?
I mean, it flopped because the story became too serious/melodramatic to appeal to the target audience of young kids, but the budget wasn't there to make the costumes and SFX look good enough to appeal to older viewers, and probably because Toei saw Sailor Moon primarily as an anime, they never attempted to sell the series overseas, so they've just left it to gather dust. I don't think they'd try another series, but I definitely think they'll do at least one live action film after Crysternal ends. Other magical girl series have had live action film adaptations (Himitsu no Akko-chan, Cutie Honey), so it's only natural Sailor Moon would be next.

Anyway, as I and others have said, Stars will almost certainly be announced as the 30th anniversary project. 2023 will be the next Year of the Rabbit, and we can probably expect something big to happen then as well.

Yeah, I expect Stars to get announced next year as the big 30th Anniversary announcement.

And then comes 5 more years of dragging it out with Anniversary products.....that sadly won't include video games nor a SD Blu-ray Box for PGSM.

They will have to retrace all attacks and transformations since in Stars arc all the senshi are in their eternal suit so at least we know for sure the sequences will have to be “ new “.
The Inners and Outers get killed off pretty quickly, so they could easily just do real-time attacks instead of stock footage since they only attack like once or twice anyway.

I still see no reason not to have a new story from SM. There's so much possibilities its crazy. If Naoko can supervise Eternal its possible she can supervise a brand new story. Think about Another Story as an example. You already have a great cast of new characters, interesting and unique plot and tons of SM fanservice with so many old characters, events and places making a return. Perfect for another annivesary? You bet. All you need is some good writing to create a cohesive story that changes some events to include 4th and 5th arcs and make it fitting for anime format.

But thats just one small example
The question isn't it if it's possible.Its more if she wants too.Naoko dosen't seem to be interested in a sequel.Who knows that might change after Crystal, but I don't see an anime only sequel at all.
Even if we get anime only anything.I don't think they would make it a sequel.Just something stand alone.

Wasn’t Sailor Moon based off of those campy tokusatsu shows in the first place? Like Poitrine and such
Yes, if you go to the Japanese Wikipedia page of Bishoujo Kamen Poitrine, Naoko’s name is there and she said that “Bishoujo Kamen Poitrine“ inspired her to create Sailor V and Sailor Moon. The first volume of the Sailor V manga feels essentially like a compilation of Poitrine stories.

And if you watch the video below, you will see that Naoko was borrowing elements from “Bishoujo Kamen Poitrine” while creating and characterizing Sailor V and Sailor Moon. Both had masks, there are illustrations of Sailor Moon wearing a cape, and even the addition of Chibiusa was inspired by an idea from “Bishoujo Kamen Poitrine.”


”Bishoujo Karen Poitrine” was a hit in Japan because it was a comedy, each episode had a mystery to be solved (for example, a criminal selling fake Poitrine autographs, the ghost of Napoleon, a crazy hairdresser, Poitrine’s father saying he would marry Poitrine if he knew her identity) and the show did not take itself seriously.

PGSM failed in Japan —in my opinion, personal opinion— because it took itself seriously. TOEI should have made a Sailor V tokusatsu with fun episodes like those from Poitrine.

We'll have to wait and see. I'm sure both Toei and Naoko already have been thinking "what's next" after manga adaptation ends. Who knows, maybe there were some talks too. She was open minded for live action adaptation and manga adapation. At least we know she's in when it comes to her own involvement. That alone makes me think she's not entirely against more SM after Crystal ends (whether its new or rehashed)

Not to mention that we already had TWO new stories in SM universe recently and many didnt realize it. Universal Studio shorts. They're both absolutely new content. Sure they dont mean much because they're side story-like shorts but at the same time they clearly mean that more new SM isnt something completely out of question

If, in the meantime, Sailor Covid, don't kill us all! ^^
OMG, please don't say that..Now you have me thinking about an actual senshi shouting Shine Pandemic Surprise!!

And if we're being fair, aside from looking like Killer Sea Urchins...the Lemures in the movie looking mighting similar to germs too...

The cross promo with Eternal and wearing masks could bring in some side change....

Why each of the senshi has a power of one element? Water, fire, earth, wind ...

Earth: for the dead.
Fire: to destroy microbes.
Water: to wash people.
The wind: to drive the Covid away further.


I am kidding.

I hope we will get actual outers transformations, not instant transformation or group one. I suppose we will get them but that one screenshot when each one of them is doing a pose got me a little worried.

Im hoping for a transformation teaser trailer like they did for inners

No. If they could cram 5 chapters of individual people in to 80 minutes, there's no reason they have to do a longer movie for the final battle, which likely happen very fast.
Well, they have outers dreams, Silver Millenium Flashback, Mamoru and Usagi dream, final battle and coronation. But es it is easier to adapt in 80 minutes.

I am worried they might do a group one as well. It makes sense as they share a chapter but it will be so unfair. On the other hand a nice group transformation might still look cool.
