New SAILOR MOON Musical Cast Performs Live

New SAILOR MOON Musical Cast Performs LiveA colorful and energetic live performance presentation by the cast members of the newest musical edition of the popular and enduring Japanese franchise SAILOR MOON and its subsequent stage musical incarnation inspired by the works of Naoko Takeuchi is now available to view.

The leading ladies perform the show-stoppers "Line Up: The Five Women Of The White Moon" and "We Are The Pretty Guardians" from SAILOR MOON: LA RECONQUISTA in the live performance clip just released.

The first new SAILOR MOON musical in eight years, the all-female manga-to-musical series of adaptations continues this September in Tokyo with the newest show, SAILOR MOON: LA RECONQUISTA, boasting a brand new leading lady and a whole new look and storyline in honor of the twentieth anniversary of the original incarnation of the girl-power-centric superhero series successfully made into a musical.

Satomi Okubo is set to essay the title role, making her the fifth actress to portray the beloved figure onstage in an official capacity - and, at only 17, one of the youngest, as well.

Additional casting has also recently been announced, including famed Takarazuka troupe headliner Yuga Yamato taking on the role of Tuxedo Mask. Filling out the central cast of the musical besides Okuko and Yamato is Miyabi Matsuura as Sailor Mercury, Kanon Nanaki as Sailor Mars, Yu Takahashi as Sailor Jupiter and Shiori Sakata as Sailor Venus.

The new incarnation of SAILOR MOON: LA RECONQUISTA was written and directed by Takuya Hiramitsu with music by Toshihiko Sahashi and will reportedly feature an entirely new story according to reports.

SAILOR MOON: LA RECONQUISTA is set to premiere this September in Japan, running September 13 through 23 in Tokyo at Shibuya's AiiA Theater.
