Since 2014, the popular Sailor Moon magical girl anime has seen a revival in the form of Sailor Moon Crystal, a second anime adaptation that more faithfully follows the story of Naoko Takeuchi's original manga. Nearly a full decade since its debut, this new anime draws to a close with Sailor Moon Cosmos, a two-part film series that caps off the classic story of Usagi Tsukino (Serena to some English speakers) as she defends the universe as Sailor Moon.

Does 'Sailor Moon Cosmos' have a US release date?

As of this writing, there is no official news on a release date for the Sailor Moon Cosmos films in the United States. However, we do have some clues.

The previous two-parter film series, Sailor Moon Eternal, came out in Japan between early January and mid-February 2021. While it didn't even get a limited theatrical release in the United States, Eternal did eventually make the leap to international audiences.

The films began streaming on Netflix in the US later that year on June 3, 2021, approximately five months after the first Eternal film was released in Japan.

Based on that, we can surmise that the Cosmos films will follow a similar release schedule. With any luck, we'll see both Sailor Moon Cosmos films come out on Netflix between November and December of 2023.

The first three seasons of Sailor Moon Crystal are streaming on Crunchyroll, Netflix, and Hulu. Sailor Moon Eternal is only streaming on Netflix.
