Sailor Moon Eternal released its second film earlier this year in Japan, bringing to a close the latest adventure of the Sailor Scouts, and fans of the Shoujo anime won't have to wait long to see the films for themselves as the streaming service Netflix is set to release them this June. The original creator of the franchise, Naoko Takeuchi, was brought onto the project as a creative director, showing that the films were certainly in good hands throughout the process of their creation.
Sailor Moon first hit the scene as a manga in 1991, subsequently getting an anime adaptation via its television series that landed shortly after. With the original television series being joined by the likes of Sailor Moon Crystal which was released in 2014, the Shoujo franchise has received a number of movies that have thrown a number of new dangers and adventures at the Sailor Scouts. With these two new films, the Sailor Scouts will be pitted against the "Dead Moon Circus", a brand new celestial threat that just might be some of the most powerful villains that Sailor Moon and her friends have ever faced.
Netflix shared the new trailer via its Official Twitter Account, giving fans a new look at the two Sailor Moon Eternal films that will expand the roster of anime franchises that make up the streaming service's library:
