Probably akin to the Pegasus from The Clash of the Titans remake?

Another thing I'd be worried about is how they would be able to pull off all the magical elements in Sailor Moon with believable CGI. We've come a long way since the early days of CGI and we've seen a lot of fantastical worlds brought to life successfully like LOTR and Harry Potter. But assuming they'd make a live action series that went far enough, how would they show like a live action Pegasus?

I wouldn't want a live action Sailor Moon movie because if it's done by Hollywood, it'd be completely white washed and it'd just be awkward to have a white actress be the ruler of a city called Crystal Tokyo. Or would they change it to Crystal New York for the American version of it?

It's mostly creative control vs. Sticking to the source material, don't get me wrong I'm still divided on the fact of a live action movie. I'm just curious how the reaction would be if a film would happen on a global scale. Not to mention that it'll be a series of films considering that the show has at least seven story arcs and would attract the wrong fanbase.

Sailor Moon live action film seems like it would be hard to do. Casting Issues aside, we have line felivery, quality special effects and a good plot.

I like the PGSM ideas. I strangely don't see SM ever being live action again. Ive heard tons of anime live action (even non anime) films have been terrible. From Death Note to Dragon Ball to Attack on Titan.

There is one magical girl Id love to see in live action and that's CardCaptor Sakura.

But back to Ms. Moon....Wouldnt a Hollywood version of SM cause a bit of division among the moon base? You have about 35% of fans wanting it similar to DIC dub, then you have 15% who want a blend of both & then 48% that want it like the original Japanese, and 2% want the ToonMakers version.

Sounds messy.

Yes, and it should be made in Hollywood. Just to see all the drama and butthurt erupting in the fandom. We would get new hot topics to argue about for a decade. P-:

Only if it was a Japanese studio.
It's not that I don't think a Hollywood studio couldn't do it right - they would probably have the funds to do so - but simply that they wouldn't, if Dragonball or Avatar the Last Airbender is any indication.

It depends on quite a few things...

1. The Hollywood studio needs to respect the original source material.
2. The director and the producer have to understand the storyline and the characters.
3. The script will have to be very well written (preferably one that was in progress for a few years).
4. The actors have to know and understand their characters.
5. A lot of care and respect needs to go into the project.

I'm torn to be honest. A lot would depend on the script and budget. Possibly a movie where they were already awakened and a team and facing a new threat...basically sort of like the existing movie but with live action and possibly new twists on the story. Sort of like the Power Rangers movie where it was an established franchise with a new twist. I guess I'll stop rambling now until I have something more definite to say lol

I think Naoko understands that a team series like Sailor Moon is not designed to be short-form. They'd have to cut everything that makes it good.

A PGSM movie back in the day would be a neat addition to the series, a bigger budget wouldny hurt.

Would i want another, not PGSM related live action movie? Honestly not. Id rather prefer them to invest money and do some outstanding animated Sailor Moon movie

^ Thx for the info. :) Now I wonder about her position if the movie were to be produced by a Japanese studio. :D

From a recent interview released in 2013:

Quote:
Aya (interviewer):All the way to Izu! That’s a shock…Anyway, 20 years have passed and Sailor Moon still hasn’t gotten stale at all, which is amazing. It’s even still really popular abroad. Have you gotten any surprising offers from fans abroad?

Takeuchi:There was an offer made from Hollywood to make a movie. (LOL)

Osano:The truth is its really hard to make a movie adaptation with Hollywood. It would be almost impossible to do without messing up the original work.


Dragon Ball Evolution being a good example, even Toriyama didn't like it and he had a lot to say about it as seen here.

Should there be a Sailor Moon Live action movie? Also, why does Naoko Takeuchi always turn down the idea of an actual movie?
