Part 1

Picking off where Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3 left off, during the Solar eclipse, Usagi, Chibiusa, and Mamoru receive a vision from a pegasus named Helios asking for their help, and Mamoru gets a stabbing feeling in his chest. The Dead Moon Circus arrives on a flagship and its members conjure a dark barrier around the area where the circus tent is.

That night, Chibiusa dreams of riding Helios, who gives her a bell, telling her to ring it if she needs him, and that he needs the Golden Crystal to save Elysion. When Chibiusa tries to return to the 30th century with Diana, the dark barrier stops her and alerts the Amazoness Quartet, prompting them to send a tiger to investigate. Usagi and Chibiusa's brooches are upgraded, allowing them to transform into Super Sailor Moon and Super Sailor Chibi Moon. The Amazoness send some Lemures to fight the Sailor Guardians, but they quickly destroy them. Mamoru faints from the pain in his chest, and PallaPalla from the Quartet switches Usagi and Chibiusa's ages.

The circus' ringleader Zirconia is instructed by her master, Queen Nehelenia, to let the Sailor Guardians' nightmares take hold of them so she can obtain the Silver Crystal. PallaPalla sends the Amazon Trio members Fish Eye, Tiger's Eye, and Hawk's Eye to respectively trap Ami, Rei, and Makoto in nightmares, one Guardian at a time. However, the girls are able to break free of them and transform with their crystals into their Super Sailor forms, enabling them to destroy the Amazon Trio. Helios reveals that Mamoru's ingravescent chest pain is caused by Nehelenia's curse on Elysion, a sacred place within Earth. This curse also turns Helios, Elysion's priest, into a pegasus, imprisoning him in a cage from which he is astral projecting. Sailor Moon says she will heal Mamoru and hugs him which then gives Usagi the same curse as Mamoru.

Minako is unable to transform, and the Amazoness VesVes sends two knife-throwing twins, Xenotime and Zeolite, after her. In the ensuing conflict, VesVes sends her falling to her death, but she is saved by Artemis, who is about to be crushed with a boulder by PallaPalla but he turns human and gives Minako her crystal, enabling her to transform into Super Sailor Venus and destroy Xenotime and Zeolite. PallaPalla then traps the four Sailor Guardians in vines. Usagi then falls ill from a black rose inside her as well, and Zirconia brings darkness to Earth with the nightmare energy she has accumulated.

In a post-credits scene, Sailor Saturn, speaking within her four-year-old Hotaru, says that the second coming is at hand.

Part 2

Sailor Saturn talks to Hotaru from inside her and restores her memories of her previous life. Hotaru then gives Haruka, Michiru, and Setsuna their respective crystals, allowing them to transform into Super Sailor Uranus, Sailor Neptune, and Sailor Pluto, who along with Sailor Saturn aid the trapped and bound Sailors Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus from PallaPalla's vines. Sailor Chibi Moon, Sailor Moon, and Tuxedo Mask arrive to help, but Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask are mortally wounded by Zirconia, who retreats with the Amazoness Quartet. Helios teleports Usagi and Mamoru to Elysion to save their lives with what purification power it has left. Sailor Chibi Moon and Sailor Saturn pursue the Amazoness Quartet and confront them inside their tent, and Sailor Saturn reveals the Amazoness Quartet were corrupted by Nehelenia's nightmare power. As the Amazoness Quartet start to come to their senses, Zirconia imprisons them inside orbs, and traps Sailor Chibi Moon and Sailor Saturn inside shards of glass, before putting all six inside Nehelenia's mirror.

In Elysion, Helios explains to Usagi and Mamoru that the Golden Kingdom used to exist in Elysion, of which Mamoru, as Endymion, was prince, and the Golden Crystal is Elysion's counterpart to the Silver Millennium's Silver Crystal. Usagi realizes the Golden Crystal is inside Mamoru as the Silver Crystal was inside her. Helios sends Usagi and Mamoru back to the surface. Usagi and Mamoru transform again, Zirconia casts a hot, suffocating fog around them and the other Sailor Guardians. Helios uses the last of his power to send Elysion's purifying crystals to Earth, blocking Zirconia's fog, and apparently dying as a result. Zirconia attacks Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask again and apparently kills them, but Tuxedo Mask is able to awaken them all from their nightmares and the Sailor Guardians combine their powers to strike back against Zirconia who then flees into Nehelenia's mirror with Sailor Moon following her, where she is able to release Sailor Chibi Moon and Sailor Saturn, with the latter taking the orbs containing the Amazoness Quartet with her, while Zirconia remains inside the mirror.

After breaking the mirror and freeing Sailor Moon, Sailor Chibi Moon, and Sailor Saturn the Dead Moon Circus disappears, but the darkness remains on Earth. Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Moon both realize that the Dead Moon Circus has teleported to Elysion and all the Sailor Guardians decide to teleport there as well to stop the threat. Sailor Moon attacks Nehelenia inside her mirror but she reflects her attack back at her and the others, sending them into a flashback of Nehelenia's past: Nehelenia arrived at the celebration of the birth of Princess Serenity, to which she was not invited. She was confronted by Queen Serenity, and asked to leave if her intentions were malicious. As the exchange escalated, Queen Serenity banishes and permanently seals Nehelenia inside her mirror using the Silver Crystal. Nehelenia then curses the princess and the Silver Millennium to their downfall.

Nehelenia takes the Silver Crystal from Sailor Moon, but before she can kill the Sailor Guardians and take over Earth and Elysion, Usagi and Tuxedo Mask kiss, breaking free of Nehelenia's nightmare and getting the Silver Crystal back. Sailor Moon transforms the other Sailor Guardians into their princess forms and summons Luna, Artemis, and Diana in human form. The other Sailor Guardians and Tuxedo Mask, using his Golden Crystal, send power to Sailor Moon, transforming her into Eternal Sailor Moon, who destroys Nehelenia and her mirror, restoring Earth and Elysion to normal. Sailor Chibi Moon revives Helios with the power of her Pink Moon Crystal, causing him to realize she was the maiden in his vision. Sailor Moon releases the Amazoness Quartet, who are revealed to be Sailor Guardians of the asteroids named Sailor Ceres, Sailor Pallas, Sailor Juno, and Sailor Vesta, who were asleep in the Amazon Jungle until Nehelenia forced them to awaken into a nightmare. They go back to sleep, to reawaken when Sailor Chibi Moon becomes a full-fledged Sailor Guardian in the future and become her Guardian Deities. Helios escorts the others back to the surface before returning to Elysion, assuring Chibiusa that they will meet again. Mamoru still feels something hot in his heart, he suspects it's the power of the Golden Crystal, but Usagi says it is a star shining within him and what he's feeling is wanting to make their dreams come true and protect those they care about and she hopes the star tucked away inside her heart will still continue to shine for her.

Development

On January 25, 2017, it was announced on the official Sailor Moon 25th anniversary website that the Sailor Moon Crystal anime would continue. Later, on June 30 of the same year, it was revealed that the fourth season based on Dream arc of the manga (known as Dead Moon arc in Japan), was to be made as two-part theatrical anime film project. Additionally, Chiaki Kon, who was a series director for the third season of the anime, returned as a main director for the films.

On June 30, 2018, it was announced that the film's production had begun, and Kazuko Tadano, who handled the character designs for the first two seasons of the 1990s Sailor Moon anime series and Sailor Moon R: The Movie, was chosen as a character designer for the film. Tadano had commented:

"I never dreamed that I'd be able to participate in this work that I had been involved with 25 years ago. I'm very happy to be involved as character designer once again for this work, which is beloved around the world. I feel anxious, because this is my first time working as a character designer for the latter part of the series, which makes me wanna work even harder. Please continue to support Sailor Moon!"

At the time of production, the name for the two-part film was originally named Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal: The Movie -Dead Moon arc- (劇場版「美少女戦士セーラームーンCrystal (クリスタル)」<デッド・ムーン編>, Gekijōban Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn Kurisutaru Dēddō Mūn Hen).

On June 30, 2019, more staff has been revealed: Kazuyuki Fudeyasu wrote the scripts, original creator & mangaka Naoko Takeuchi chief supervised the films' production, Studio Deen co-animated and produced the films with Toei Animation, and the name for the two-part film was decided as Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal: The Movie (劇場版「美少女戦士セーラームーンEternal (エターナル), Gekijōban Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn Etānaru).

Casting

Most of the main voice actors from Sailor Moon Crystal had returned for the two-part film, but, for unknown reasons, Taishi Murata took over Yohei Oobayashi's role as Artemis. In April 2020, it was announced that Yoshitsugu Matsuoka will voice Pegasus/Helios for the film. In August 2020, it was announced that Shouta Aoi, Satoshi Hino, and Toshiyuki Toyonaga were to voice the Amazon Trio: Fish Eye, Tiger's Eye, and Hawk's Eye. The following week, Reina Ueda, Sumire Morohoshi, Yuko Hara, and Rie Takahashi were cast as the Amazoness Quartet: CereCere, PallaPalla, JunJun, and VesVes. In September 2020, it was announced that the Japanese comedian, fashion designer and actress Naomi Watanabe was cast as Zirconia. The following month, Japanese model and actress Nanao was cast as Queen Nehelenia.

Yasuharu Takanashi returned to compose the music for the two-part film. The theme song for the two-part film is titled "Moon Color Chainon" (月色Chainon, Tsukiiro Chainon), performed by Momoiro Clover Z with Sailor5Guardians. The song's lyrics were written by Naoko Takeuchi (under the name of "Sumire Shirobara"), composed by Akiko Kosaka, and arranged by Gesshoku Kaigi. The ending theme for the first film is Watashi-tachi ni Naritakute (私たちになりたくて, Wanting to Be Together with You), performed by Yoko Ishida, and the ending theme for the second film is "Rashiku" Ikimasho (“らしく” いきましょ, "I'll Go As Myself"), performed by Anza. The eleven-track character song collection album, titled Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal: The Movie Character Song Collection: Eternal Collection, was released on February 10, 2021, and the eleventh track, titled "Moon Effect", performed by the voice actresses for all ten Sailor Guardians, is used as an insert song for the second film.

Japanese release

The first film was slated to release in Japanese theaters on September 11, 2020, but was postponed and released four months later on January 8, 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The second film was released on February 11, 2021.

The Japanese Blu-ray and DVD were released on June 30, 2021.

International release

In late April 2021, it was announced that Netflix acquired the streaming rights for the two-part film, and it premiered worldwide on June 3, 2021. In early May 2021, it was announced that the English dub cast from both Sailor Moon Crystal and the redub of the 1990s anime reprised their roles, with the exception of Chris Niosi as he did not reprise his role as Helios. The role was assumed by Brian Beacock who previously voiced Ali, an original character in the redub of Sailor Moon R.

The first film debuted ninth place out of top ten from weekend box office, and also ranked sixth in Filmarks' first-day satisfaction ranking with a score of 3.46 out of 5 based on 242 reviews. On review aggregator Rotten tomatoes, the two-part film holds an approval rating of 100% based on 8 reviews.

Victoria Johnson of Polygon gave a positive review, and wrote "At its heart, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie is about overcoming evil with the power of love and friendship. And there's nothing more Sailor Moon than that". Lynzee Loveridge of Anime News Network gave a B approval rating and wrote "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal is a solid entry in the Sailor Moon canon that had the pieces to be something even better. You can put your worries aside as it routinely looks excellent and, occasionally, fantastic". Rosie Knight from IGN labeled the two films as a "good adventure that boasts stunning animation, vibrant storytelling, and the return of our favorite magical girl Sailor Scouts in a dynamic double bill that will inspire and entertain." Michael Mammano from Den of Geek stated that Eternal is "an enthralling adaptation of one of the manga's best arcs."

Arius Raposas from Medium offered a less favorable review, writing, "While the overall presentation was quite pleasing when placed in the standards of modern anime, it may not approach the level of, say Demon Slayer: Mugen Train (2020), which also dealt with the theme of dreams and nightmares."

A sequel was hinted at the end of the second film during its Japanese theatrical release, with an English teaser-line, "To Be Continued".
