I dug it, but it needed more from the Sonic characters and less from the movie characters.
Now THIS is Sailor Moon. Holy shit. The art, the action, the LORE. God, this is why I love this series. Sailor Moon Eternal Part 2 is top-shelf Sailor Moon storytelling, with a rich plot, engaging characters, fluid animation, and legitimately surprising voice acting.
This movie shows how much the Sailor Moon reboot has grown from Crystal Season 1, and I honestly can’t wait to see what happens next. Hopefully the wait isn’t as long as it was for this pair of films, but if it is I’ll gladly wait patiently.
Absolutely loved it. A near-perfect ending to a most excellent trilogy, and beautiful capstone on the Skywalker Saga. Bravo, Abrams. Bravo.
Edit: Oh, also, John Williams knocked it out of the freaking park with his final Star Wars score. Supremely powerful and extremely gratifying. Loved every second of it, and it absolutely elevated The Rise of Skywalker to dizzying heights. I’m so glad he was able to score this film.
