To add to the excitement, the sparkly costumes on the actors are perfectly impressive from head to toe.

Mitsuki Yamashita, who plays Sailor Moon, the lead role of the Sailor Guardians commented: “Sailor Moon’s famous line “in the name of the moon, I will punish you!” is really iconic and I’ve always looked up to Sailor Moon since childhood, so I’m really excited to play her role. Also, I think each Sailor guardian has their own uniqueness and charm. I would like to express this role to the world full of love, power and shine!”

Mai Shiraishi plays the role of Queen Serenity, the mother of Princess Serenity who will appear on screen during the show. Fans are already eagerly awaiting for the unveil of the promotional images for her character.

The play will be directed by Wally Kinoshita, who is well known for his work “Hyper Projection Stage Play Haikyuu!!”, a popular 2.5-dimensional musical play.

The first performance period will run from June 8 (Friday) to 24 (Sunday) at Tennozu Ginga Theater, and the second performance period will run from September 21 (Friday) to 30 (Sunday) at the TBS Akasaka ACT Theater. Both venues will each present a unique production.

After each performance, there will be commemorative photo shoots and a lottery for autographed goods. Tickets will be available online from May 13.
