December 20, 2016

Yes! Over fifteen years after its initial home video American release, Sailor Moon R: The Movie will have a limited theatrical run.  It will run completely uncut for the first time in America. The series, first released in Japan in 1991, Sailor Moon helped popularize the Magical Girl genre, thus inspiring many more manga and anime series to come.

The film, first released to VHS in 2000 in America, has been re-mastered and features updated voices from the likes of Stephanie Sheh (Orihime Inoue, Bleach), Christina Vee (Homura Akemi, Puella Magi Madoka Magika), Cherami Leigh (Asuna Yuki, Sword Art Online), and the legendary Johnny Yong Bosch. Additionally, it will feature a fifteen minute short film that was present in the Japanese release, but absent in the original American release.

SAILOR MOON R opens January 9th, 2017.

Tickets are on sale at Angelika Film Center Carmel Mountain, Angelika Film Center Dallas, Angelika Film Center Mosaic, Angelika Film Center Plano, and Angelika Pop-Up.
