Exciting. I hope they release all the footage for this (and last year's attraction).

ETA: I find it interesting that they're calling it an "arc" rather than just a story. I wonder if it'll be related in any way to the Dark Kingdom: Another Story arc that Sailor Moon Drops did. Maybe the musical this year will also have a Moon Kingdom theme?

What if the two movies they announced way back when were this movie and the previous one shown last year at Universals Studios??? That would be sad because they probably won’t release the footage from these on home video release

Wow :oh my:those 3D models actually look so much better than last year’s. Neptune in particular looks fantastic.

The Dream arc movies have nothing to do with this.

Drooling! Hey Bandai Namco, give us a 3D-Sailor Moon Action RPG with those models!!!

EDIT: So it's "Moon Palace Arc"? Could it be backstory of the Silver Millennium? Hello Queen Serenity?

They totally nailed it with Sailor Neptune. The only one I don't like that much is Saturn. She looks a bit too young, is possibly inspired by her age in Stars. I always prefered her in S.

While the picture is gorgeous, I have to say, I prefer the more oriental-eclectic moon palace over the very smoothed baroque-neoclassical Crystal version.

I still love how they joined the aesthetics of both the manga and the 90's anime together to make this product. They fixed the models and also gave Mars her side bangs but also retaining her 90's anime style look.

I especially like the lips on these. I hope Tadano brings that back in her designs as well. Once again Neptune is gorgeous. She looks like her cover on the eternal edition. Perfection. Take these and make long long Sailor Moon game Bandai. Triple A title.

It’s really a shame that they won’t develop a game when they have these kind of 3D models lying around. It’s probably because they’re convinced that the only kind of game that would do well is a candy crush clone. Meanwhile, in the ‘90s we had all kinds of video games produced.

It’s really sad the direction the franchise has taken in the present day.

So much inconsistency with this franchise. ^_^' The first one was called "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: The Miracle" so the second should have been "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: Moon Palace" instead of "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: The Miracle: Moon Palace". Railroad-long titles are not appealing.

And I don't know why they're calling it an arc when it's really just a subtitle like they do with movies or musicals. They're not TV episodes or manga chapters where a bunch of them together form an arc.

They really should have dropped the "Pretty Guardian" part of the franchise's title a long time ago. Everyone just calls the series "Sailor Moon" anyway. But I guess overly wordy titles have always been a part of this franchise.

That looks really, really, really good (though I don't know why they needed lipstick/"lady lips" on Chibi Moon nor why Mercury's brooch is a different shade of blue than her main blue color), now I wanna see a Sailor Moon video game with those models that plays something like this (as in like a Dynsasty Warriors/Saint Seiya: Legend of Sanctuary style game):


Hell, I wouldn't even mind a Sailor Moon movie looking like this as long as the movements are fluid throughout and not feeling like they're lagging like a badly done video game.

I love these models! That said, the first thing that drew my critical eye was just how off-color Mercury's outfit is. It's almost the same color as Uranus. IMO the skirt should be much closer to the bow gem. (I blame the anime, which tended to make her skirt etc. more royal blue, almost matching Sailor Moon..)
