Honestly from what we’ve seen so far I think this will look just as good generally, I think they gave sailor moons transformation to the wrong animators lol but who know. I’m hoping they clean it up. But the issue is that if they weren’t so worried about pandering to nostalgia I think sailor moon would get more Interesting transformations.
let's pray... i'm not even asking for all stars dx3 quality; if this movie looks even as good as the yes! precure 5 gogo movie, which definitely had a lower budget than some other precure films, i'll be more than happy.

also, i don't know if it's because i've consistently stuck with sailor moon even after my days of watching the dic dub vhs tapes as a toddler, but i feel like nostalgia... runs out? surely there's no way people are STILL that vulnerable to nostalgia trips after 6 years of crystal, but i guess it makes sense if they're trying to reach an older audience who hasn't paid much attention to sailor moon since the 90s anime.

For real. The 90s anime is more readily available than ever, and the snippet clips allll over youtube are there for a quick fix. I love that stuff and still revisit it, but I don't need to see a carbon copy of it, let alone a flawed version.

We'll see, but I think they can still probably keep Phobos and Deimos and just cut out the talking weapons and Sailor Power Guardians since they're both completely useless to the plot.
Unless Phobos and Deimos give all three of them their Sailor Crystals (which would be odd), it would (also) be odd for them to just give Rei hers and then awkwardly hang around while Ami and Mako get theirs from...~elsewhere~

The law of silence

The more I watch Crystal, the more I feel that TOEI should have worked in silence. All the episodes of season 1 should have been released finished and at once via online platforms and also through a special DVD and Blu-ray release. People would have been caught by surprise and would be excited binge-watching the episodes and digesting the new content.

I am re-watching Crystal for the first time since 2014 and although Crystal is not a masterpiece, it’s quite good. If you can binge-watch the episodes, you should have a lovely experience.

I honestly wouldn't mind it if they were cut, too. Alongside the castles the Outers go to when Galaxia kills them. It all feels really pointless and you could easily write more interesting alternatives.

But then how would the Inner and Outer Sailors get their powers to get their Eternal forms? The castles were the main reason they got their powers and how Usagi became Eternal Sailor Moon!!!

IKR? I told many people a lot of times, but they just didn't listen to me.

I feel like both series are differently written.Crystal is not an episodic series like classic was.Classic has episodes you can enjoy randomly .Why the plot was in the background.Crystal is a plot series made for you to binge.
 
They better not take out Phobos or Deimos or the talking weapons. They can write this in the battle scenes and their weapons can guide them to destroy their targets. I suspect it might be a Sailor Senshi Trio vs Amazon Trio kind of fight since you clearly see Mercury's Harp, Jupiter's Oak Wreath, and Mars bow (but nothing from Venus yet). It could be trailer aesthetics of course but who knows. They may just combine their super attacks to wipe the trio off the face of the Earth altogether in one big wallop.

I'd at least think they would change the setup with the scene with Rei meeting Tiger's eye but I'd at least like for the Inners to get some shine in this movie some and let them take out the baddies on their own.

I'm guessing the Lemures attack might be reminiscent to the Bon Bon Babies attack from the original Super S movie...(but hopefully better.)
 
Thats what I'm hoping because the actual Crystal transformations are longer than even the original ones. We really don't need stock footage and if we get it, it should be shown at least one time with the rest either real time versions of previous attacks or something similar to the original Super S movie and R movie where they mixed a little bit of both. I honestly can't think of any reason some things would get cut though since we have no commercials and won't have a transformation of the same characters every 20 minutes. That should leave enough timw to tell the stories in a digestible format.

As for the 80 minutes thing.I think it's too early to confirm it.The only confirmation is a tweet, and not a website.It could be 90 minutes for all we know.
