Do you guys think Crystal will ever adapt the short stories from the manga? I know the S movie is technically an adaptation of the Snow Kaguya story and that Naoko oversaw the production of that movie, but iirc, the manga story is a bit different, so it'd be cool to see what Crystal could do with it. And then there are the exam stories; I know Ami's was adapted into Ami's First Love, but I'd love to see everyone else's (and maybe a more continuity-friendly re-adaptation of Ami's).

I think they'll add them for the 40th anniversary for the reboot of Crystal by 2031.

Before that happens TOEI will be milking the fandom of Figurarts and the re-re-re-re-re-release of the manga.

I’d love for them to do it. They could even go about it a few different ways:

They could release the Battle Exams as a movie or OAV after the Eternal movies.

They can always recycle the other side stories (Casablanca Memories, Hammer Price, etc) as mini specials to play along with the Stars movie (assuming that Stars will be getting a movie adaptation too.)

They could release it after they adapt Stars. The side stories can all be easily updated to take place after Stars.

They could expand Snow Kaguya into a full season of Crystal and modify it to serve as a sequel to Stars. Set it before Usagi and Mamo get married or set it afterwards but before Crystal Tokyo happens. They’d have to adjust the Luna/ Kakeru thing though.. since at this point she’s well with Artemis.

Actually, never mind. That last idea would require some really good screenwriting.. so it’s best to nix that idea altogether. I can see them doing a Kaguya remake as a Holiday special or something instead. I’m excited to see how they adapt the story for the next musical.

It would be amazing if they make the short stories into anime form, especially Casablanca Memory which one of my favorite Sailor Moon short stories.

I doubt they will. The 90's anime did Kaguya and Ami's First Love very well and very faithful to the manga, so there's not much point in revisiting them. Some of Chibiusa's short stories were also adapted. Personally I'd much rather see a Sailor V adaptation, either as a movie or OVA.

I felt frustrated because I hoped to have each act of the manga faithfully adapted. At least I got three manga arcs animated & I actually love them quite a lot.

I am not excited about the movies, I cannot handle more inconsistencies than I already have.

A Sailor V movie or OVA would be nice because it would provide closure to the story, especially if we have a long flashback depicting Kunzite and Venus‘s relationship.

I still think its good Dream isn't a TV series. Since TV series end up costing more in the long run due to paying for syndication..etc. What we see now with the Eternal movie would be back to the low-bar animation of Season 3. However, as someone mentioned, SM has to REALLY take off for them to show more effort in its production. Pray over the chalice this film hits big because if it does, it might mean more Sailor Moon, (If Naoko approves of it.)

I honestly thought it would have been nice as other people said if they adapted Casablanca Memories to have been an episode in the first season of Crystal. One thing they could do with the two Eternal movies is maybe adapt two of the Side Stories as specials for that movie. I mean in the original 90s anime in the Sailor Moon R and Sailor Moon SuperS movies they did include two specials for them. For the R movie they had the Make Up! Sailor Senshi Special and for the SuperS movie they had the Ami's First Love Special. Really the S movie was the only one that didn't have a special all though really if they wanted a Side Story that could have fit for that movie in my opinion would either be the Casablanca Memories story which I mentioned before or even the Tanabata Chibiusa's Picture Diary Story which was set in that season as well.

However for the two Dream Arc movies if I could suggest two specials for them. It would be for the first movie I would have it to be The Melancholy of Mako Chain and for the second I would have it to be Rei and Minako's Girl School Battle. For one I believe the Exam Battles were released around the time of the Dream Arc and also they would have happened before the Dream Arc before they got into high school so I think they would be very fitting. Plus we all ready got the Ami's First Love special in the SuperS movie in the past so I think that these two Side Stories would be very fitting for the Eternal movies.
