Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon third delivery date
Parts 1 and 2 of “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon” were released internationally on June 3, 2021 on Netflix. Before that, both films were released in Japan. The first part of “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon” was originally scheduled to premiere on September 11, 2020. But the COVID pandemic has hit and affected the entire anime industry. The film finally opened in Japan on January 8, 2021. About a month later, on February 11, 2021, the second part was released in the domestic market. Toei Animation, who also created “Sailor Moon Crystal,” developed the films in collaboration with Studio Deen. Chiaki Kon, who was the director of “Sailor Moon Crystal” season 3, returned to direct the films.
As for the third part of “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon”, no official announcement on this topic has yet been made. However, the end of the second part of “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon” hints at a possible adaptation of “Stars”, the next and last arc in the story of the original manga series. Sailor Moon is one of the most influential manga series of all time and has inspired two television series, a live-action television series, several animated films, and several video games. His influence on pop culture is undeniable. So it’s only a matter of time before the producers give the green light to an animated production based on the “Stars” arc. The real question is whether this will be Season 4 of “Sailor Moon Crystal” or a two-part movie series like “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.”
Sailor Moon Crystal ”is a reboot of the television anime“ Sailor Moon ”that aired between 1992 and 1997. It is also a more faithful adaptation of Takeuchi’s original work. The “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon” movies followed this trend. If the producers are going to do a full adaptation of “Stars,” which is widely considered the best story arc in the entire manga series, they will probably have to do a full season. But in recent years, animated films have proven to be far more profitable businesses than their television counterparts. Anyway, if the project develops in the next few months, the third part of “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon” or the next episode of the universe “Sailor Moon Crystal” is expected to be released in 2023.
