Tomoya Takahashi (Gatchaman Crowds assistant director) will be directing both parts of Sailor Moon Cosmos at both Toei Animation and Studio Deen. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime) is writing the screenplay, while Kazuko Tadano (Sailor Moon seasons 1 and 2) returns once more for the character designs. Yasuharu Takanashi (Sailor Moon Crystal) is producing the music again for the films, with Yumiko Kuga from Studio Jack (Deaimon: Recipe for Happiness) as the art director on the films.


Sailor Moon Cosmos will adapt the “final battle” from the original manga series by Naoko Takeuchi, which was previously adapted as the last arc of the original Sailor Moon anime dubbed “Sailor Moon Sailor Stars.” Cosmos‘s first film releases on June 9 while the second part enters theaters on June 30.


Cosmos continues on from the Sailor Moon Eternal two-part film, which was released in early 2021 in Japan and on Netflix on June 3 around the world. Eternal continued the Sailor Moon Crystal TV anime series, which is streaming here on Crunchyroll and is described as such:


Based on Naoko Takeuchi’s legendary manga series, Sailor Moon Crystal retells the story of Sailor Moon as she searches for her fellow Sailor Guardians and the Legendary Silver Crystal to stop the dark forces of Queen Beryl.
