It’s hard to hold back a good Sailor Scout, as Sailor Moon and her allies will return later this year with two new movies that will adapt the manga’s final arc. The Sailor Scouts will be released in rapid succession in Japan, with the first film hitting theaters on June 9 and the second later that same month on June 30. The Sailor Scouts will have two great adventures. Now, new character designs and the voice actors who will bring the characters to life have been revealed.
The new characters that will be introduced in the upcoming two-movie finale are Princess Kakyuu, who will be voiced by Nana Mizuki who played Hinata in the Naruto franchise, Sailor Galaxia, which will be voiced by Megumi Hayashibara who you may recognize Rei from Neon Genesis Evangelionand Chibi Chibi, who will be voiced by Kotono Mitsuishi who also stars Usagi in Sailor Moon. At this point, there’s no word on when the two films will reach North America, but with the previous films and series making their way West via Netflix and Crunchyroll, it’s a good bet we’ll see the Sailor Scouts ‘ Grand finale.
