They kept Naoko T.'s idea by making Galaxia the sworn enemy of Sailor Moon / Sailor Cosmos.
Will Galaxia become Sailor Chaos (the mangaka's idea before she changed her mind)?
That was Takeuchi's plans before she finalized Galaxia's backstory which is unlikely to materialize at this point as it has been implemented in 90s Stars with Galaxia shattering her bracelets and PGSM as Metalia Endymion.

Good Lord, why do they have such giant heads???
To me, it seems they are trying to go the old-school style a la Captain Harlock/Rose of Versailles 80s design - all at the same time forgetting Sailor Moon itself set a trend for the 90s shoujo/mahou shoujo designs...

Overall the art is meh.
This set of characters is kinda weird, I suppose the other characters will appear as well for other weeks, though will there be enough for all I wonder?
The special Coaster Art cards is a tactic employed to push collectors to go to the screenings several times but it's no where near the quality the cards the Free! movies had.

On twitter people were going several times a day to collect them all - it was a sight to behold :O

I was about to say « if they want to make people come several times to see these movies, they could have least make Tadano draw them, because it’s really bad art there »… but I just noticed that they are DONE BY TADANO.
I don’t like the coloring but I guess it’s a manga hommage so why not… but the art in itself is really disappointing to say the least. She is chara-designer, she should be the one drawing HER characters in the highest possible quality. What happened ??

I don't have a problem with the coloring style chosen.
It seems to be quite popular, Precure has had a illustration line-up in this style and it's stellar art.
The thing with such watercolor-esque coloring style, there needs to be a perfect line-art on it with quite an elaborate composition.
I think it's time for Tadano to respectfully retire.

I'm gonna be a contrarian and say I like most of them despite being different from her initial style. You gotta remember it's been several years since she first did the designs, her work on the movies probably wrapped up back in 2020/2021, and she's only now being brought back for some promo art after working regularly on stuff like Yugioh Sevens. IIRC people complained about Umakoshi's art in the Doremi movie looking too much like MHA at times, so it's nothing uncommon. You can say you don't like it, but saying she needs to retire over it is just disrespectful.
