Live-action Sailor Moon musicals are nothing new to Japanese audiences. However, the trend of adapting the popular 90s anime never quite transitioned to the American viewership. Until now.
Sailor Moon on the Big Screen in America
Celebrating 25 Years
The Musical-Le Mouvement Final comes to America just in time to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Sailor Moon’s original Japanese release. While this event will bring live-action Sailor Moon to America for the first time, musical adaptations of the series are nothing new in Japan. According to Mark Rupp, Managing Director for CineLife Entertainment, “In Japan, the Sailor Moon musical adaptations have been a fan favorite for years and we are excited to bring this major cinema event to manga and anime fans across the U.S.”
