‘Sailor Moon R The Movie: Promise Of The Rose’ Getting 2017 Theatrical Release

Originally announced at the Moonlight Party streaming event, Sailor Moon R The Movie: Promise Of The Rose will be getting a limited North American theatrical release in January. The film will be shown in an all new HD remastered format alongside the Make Up! Sailor Guardians short film.

“Long before Mamoru found his destiny with Usagi, he gave a single rose in thanks to a lonely boy who helped him recover from the crash that claimed his parents. This long-forgotten friend, Fiore, has been searching the galaxy for a flower worthy of that sweet gesture long ago. The mysterious flower he finds is beautiful, but has a dark side- it has the power to take over planets. To make matters worse, the strange plant is tied to an ominous new asteroid near Earth! Faced with an enemy blooming out of control, It’s up to Sailor Moon and the Sailor Guardians to band together, stop the impending destruction and save Mamoru!”

Sailor Moon R The Movie: Promise Of The Rose, released in 1993, was animated by Toei Animation and directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara.

No other details about the upcoming theatrical run are known at this time.
