Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon has dropped a new poster for its upcoming Eternal movie! Taking the place of a fourth season for the Sailor Moon Crystal revival series, Sailor Moon will instead be heading to theaters for the final arcs of the anime. Broken down into a two film experience, Sailor Moon Eternal's first film will be hitting Japanese theaters in January. Adapting the Dead Moon saga of Naoko Takeuchi's original Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon manga, the film will feature the returning character designer from the 1990s anime adaptation, Kazuko Tadano.
With the first Sailor Moon Eternal film releasing in Japan on January 8th (and the second hitting a month later on February 11th), the official Twitter account for the films has released a gorgeous new visual featuring Sailor Moon herself alongside the core villain for the arc, Queen Nehelenia.
