Here’s everything you need to know about the latest Sailor Moon movie.

Netflix confirmed back in April that a new Sailor Moon movie would be dropping on the streaming service this year - now, the wait is almost over.

Split into two parts, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal: The Movie first premiered in Japanese theatres earlier this year.

Given the franchise’s international appeal and fan-base, however, the double anime feature film will soon be made available to stream in the UK and worldwide.

Based on the 90’s manga series by Naoko Takeuchi, the new movie will be centred around the Dream Arc - but will be adapted for screen.

The official (dubbed) trailer was released on May 6 - you can watch it in its entirety above.

“We are excited to bring these movies to our fans through Netflix. Amidst these challenging times, it is our greatest pleasure for viewers to feel courage and hope by watching this story about love and justice.”

Here’s everything you need to know about the latest Sailor Moon movie - from release date and cast, to plot details and more.

When is the new Sailor Moon movie released on Netflix?

Fans will be pleased to know that there’s not much longer to wait.

The double feature lands on the streaming service on Thursday, June 3.

What is Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal: The Movie about?

As mentioned above, the movie will closely follow the Dream Arc storyline from the classic manga.

More specifically, it details the Dead Moon Circus’ arrival in Tokyo - and their evil mission to steal the Legendary Silver Crystal (as per all foes of the Sailor Guardians).

Simultaneously, the Dead Moon Circus attempts to invade Earth with its nightmare-riddled army, which goes by the name of the Lemures. The film will also depict the first love of Chibi-Usa and Helios. 

The official synopsis reads: "When a dark power enshrouds the Earth after a total solar eclipse, the scattered Sailor Guardians must reunite to bring light back into the world."
