Just noticed that the release date here is given as May 1993. What's the source for this? All my sources give the 5th of December 1993 as the date (all three of the movies were released around Christmas). As a matter of fact, Chibiusa didn't even show up until June 1993, so this must be wrong. dooky 21:03, 6 August 2006 (MST)

In theaters from December 5th to January 14th, according to Doi-sama. He also mentions that it was screened at the 1993 Xmas event, and that there was a "Sailor Moon R Movie Late Show" on January 8th... --Rosen 21:26, 6 August 2006 (MST)
Um, that's my fault. I misinterpreted the date on ANN, as I can't get my head around the American mm/dd/yyyy date system. GracieLizzie 02:53, 7 August 2006 (MST)
Heheh, I didn't even realise it was the same date backwards ^_^;; dooky 06:58, 7 August 2006 (MST)

"The Xenian Flower, traveling through space disguised as a meteor, aims to gather all the positive energy from the Earth and plant the seeds of negativity leaving Earth full of hatred."
^is this right? I seem to remember that it simply wanted to kill everyone on earth, plain and simple, but I might be wrong... Elanorea 01:13, 7 August 2006 (MST)

Yeah, as I recall the Xenian flower was just looking for energy. dooky 06:58, 7 August 2006 (MST)
  • I have an image of the VHS edition of the English dub R movie, which as "Promise of the Rose" written at the bottom. ~ Fighter4luv 01:00, 9 March 2007 (MST)
Since this Wiki site is centered on the original version, an image from the Japanese one is more appropriate here, tho the current image itself is not ideal - it's from a Chinese cover. lol --210 06:08, 9 March 2007 (MST)
Ooops, now I see the template also provides for a dub image below, but the image is from the uncut version - is your image also from such version, since it's closer to the original one? --210 06:21, 9 March 2007 (MST)
The remastered version has Princess Serenity with the crystal in the middle and the other girls standing in the positions from the introduction at the beginning of the movie. These images can be found at Eternal Sailor (This unsigned comment was left by MusicallyObsessedBoi, July 13, 2009)

Fixed! It's .org, sorry for my mistake!MusicallyObsessedBoi 12:00, 14 March 2010 (MST)
Here's the page with the covers!MusicallyObsessedBoi 12:05, 14 March 2010 (MST)
Okay. I own the BSSMR Movie DVD remaster from Toei. I also scanned it, so here is the URL on my server: [1] ~ Fighter4luv 06:43, 9 March 2007 (MST)
VERY good! But I'm such a dummy who doesn't know how to resize your image to replace the current Chinese one. Anyone? --210 07:10, 9 March 2007 (MST)
I uploaded it. Kerochan no Miko 09:50, 9 March 2007 (MST)


Right now, the trivia section is trying to establish when in canon this movie occurred. This is certainly within our brief. A few notes:

  • Sailor Moon's use of Moon Tiara Action does not, in my opinion, affect the matter one way or the other. We know she lost the ability at the start of the season, but it's never revealed when it came back. She's cheerfully using it at the start of Sailor Moon S, so I see no reason why it couldn't have returned late on in the R season.
  • The movie must occur after episode 77 (in which Usagi and Mamoru reconcile) and before episode 81 (at which point the Senshi go to the future, Chibiusa becomes Black Lady and things don't let up until Chibiusa returns home). This is probably as far as we can go without slipping into speculation; although I personally place it around episode 79, because they both show some unseasonably warm weather for the time they're set, which is the middle of winter. dooky 08:27, 30 April 2007 (MST)

Visual Errors in US release[edit]

Wikipedia mentions some visual errors in the version of the movie that Toei gave Pioneer entertainment for dubbing, (after I read that and saw the subbed movie, I noticed some), should we mention something about that 20:46, 24 May 2007 (MST)Syarasu

I'd like to read about that here. --210 20:55, 24 May 2007 (MST)
In one of the releases of the movie, there are several visual errors. This happened to be the version Toei gave to Pioneer to use for dubbing and the television/DVD releases in the United States, and is 4:3 full screen, complete with field blending, poor saturation, and very poor overall quality throughout. Some of the more prominent errors are:

- When Fiore tries to take the crystal from Usagi (on the meteor), Fiore talks while Usagi's lips move.

- When Usagi jumps to save Chibi Usa and they fly through the store window, the right most window turns completely black.

- When Fiore is trying to attack Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask is fighting him off, his sword goes flying and can be seen stabbing into the ground landing right between the legs of a very scared Artemis. However, in the very next scene where we see Fiore's nails extending to stab Sailor Moon, Artemis has somehow turned into Luna.

....What the pedia says....shall we rewrite that somehow for this page? ~Syarasu

I would really prefer that people not just take stuff from Wikipedia, rewrite it slightly, and then post it here. By all means, write something about visual errors, just make it your own. Kerochan no Miko 22:49, 25 May 2007 (MST)
When I said "I'd like to read about that here," the "here" was actually meant to be "WikiMoon," i.e. this article itself - sorry for not making that precise. But it's also good that you quoted the Wikipedia info on this talk page. What Kerochan said & looking forward to your own write-up about it. ^^ --210 02:47, 26 May 2007 (MST)
Kay, I'll try, and I'll remember four tides, too after the dots.....Syarasu 20:19, 31 May 2007 (MST)Syarasu

Weren't all three movies dubbed by DiC? I think that should be included on the Main Page. (This unsigned comment was left by MusicallyObsessedBoi, July 13, 2009)

I didn't think they were - wasn't Pioneer responsible for them? Kerochan no Miko 10:40, 13 July 2009 (MST)

Stock footage?[edit]

Stock footage from episode 88 is used during the scenes on Fiore's asteroid.
Where? Which footage was this? I don't recall anything being re-used for the movies. Kerochan no Miko 12:12, 20 September 2009 (MST)

Transformation Music[edit]

In the English dub, the music used during Sailor Mars' and Sailor Mercury's transformations was to be Sailor Moon's transformation music in 'S', but DiC wasn't able to dub 'S'. I don't know where this is from, but I heard about it on YouTube. MusicallyObsessedBoi 12:30, 14 March 2010 (MST)

I can invent random trivia and put it on YouTube, too. Kerochan no Miko 13:35, 14 March 2010 (MST)
But when you play the music along with her 3rd transformation, the high points of the song match with the high points of the transformation! Talk to the user EcoRek on YouTube. They know more about it than I do! MusicallyObsessedBoi 18:44, 15 March 2010 (MST)
That's nice. It's still speculation, unless you can find a source from someone who actually worked on the show. Kerochan no Miko 19:37, 15 March 2010 (MST)

Georeferenced shot![edit]

May I just point out that the R Movie features what I believe to be one of the only shots in the anime where it is possible to fix the "camera's" precise geographical location. It's a shot of the five Senshi at the "archway over the fountain" in Ichinohashi Park, and the camera is pointed NNE to frame the Tokyo Tower between two of the elevated roadways of Ichinohashi Junction. -- DENelson83 16:33, 16 May 2011 (MST)

There are several scenes in the anime that feature specific real-world locations. Ichinohashi Park is one of them, and it appeared several times. Kerochan no Miko 16:35, 16 May 2011 (MST)
Did I say NNE? I really meant ENE. -- DENelson83 11:01, 17 May 2011 (MST)

Slight plot hole[edit]

Since Sailor Moon died temporarily near the very end of the film, it would have made a little more sense if Chibiusa slowly started to vanish when the scene cut to her, as her mother dying would have taken away here existence, and would re-materalize after the flower of life revived Sailor Moon. I know it may sound too much like Back to the Future but it's something I couldn't help thinking after seeing it the first time. -- 02:51, 13 September 2020 (EDT)
