In April, the city is in a festive mood for the biggest total solar eclipse of the century, with cherry blossoms in bloom.
As the new moon obscures the sun and the sky grows dim, Usagi and Chibi-Usa meet Pegasus Elyos, who seeks his help. One day, Elyos appears in Chibi-Usa’s dream and tells her that he is looking for the chosen maiden to break the Golden Crystal’s seal. At the same time, a mysterious circus group calling itself Dead Moon Circus appears in town. They plan to dominate the moon, the earth, and eventually the universe by obtaining the Silver Crystal, by distributing the nightmare incarnation of Lemuress.
Chibi-Usa, called the “Maiden,” has a faint love for Elyos, who needs her.
Mamoru is tormented by the thought that he may be slowing her down, and Usagi is tormented by the thought that she is always putting him in harm’s way. Usagi’s “dream” and “mission” are gradually revealed in the course of the battle.
—Now, a grand story of a “dream” that transcends time is beginning.
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie premieres in Japanese theaters on January 8th.
