On Saturday, July 5, Anime News Network broke the news that during their panel at Anime Expo, Viz Media announced the voice cast for the new English dubbing of the classic animé, "Sailor Moon." Among these names include veteran voice actors Stephanie Sheh, Michelle Ruff, and Johnny Young Bosch. Stephanie, who is known for her work in series such as "Bleach," "Naruto," and "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya," will be playing the lead role of Usagi Tsukino, a teenage high school student who becomes the magical guardian of the universe, Sailor Moon. The cast lists as follows:

  • Stephanie Sheh as Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon
  • Kate Higgins as Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury
  • Cristina Vee as Rei Hino/Sailor Mars
  • Amanda C. Miller as Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter
  • Cherami Leigh as Minako Aino/Sailor Venus
  • Robbie Daymond as Mamoru Chiba/Tuxedo Mask
  • Michelle Ruff as Luna
  • Johnny Yong Bosch as Artemis
  • Danielle Nicole as Naru Osaka
  • Ben Diskin as Gurio Umino
  • Tara Platt as Ikuko Tsukino
  • Keith Silverstein as Kenji Tsukino
  • Nicolas Roye as Shingo Tsukino
  • Cindy Robinson as Queen Beryl
  • Todd Haberkorn as Jadeite
  • Liam O'Brien as Nephrite
  • Lucien Dodge as Zoicite
  • Patrick Seitz as Kunzite

The new dubbing will correlate with the re-release of the classic animé from the early ‘90s with uncensored scenes, original storylines, and the original Japanese cultural references that were changed during its’ syndicated television run in the late '90s to make the series more relatable to viewers. Part one of the first season is set to hit shelves on Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack later this November.

Earlier this May, Viz Media announced that they acquired the streaming and digital rights to the combined 200 episodes of the original five series, including the final series, “Sailor Moon Sailor Stars,” which never aired in the United States, as well as all three "Sailor Moon" movies and the various specials that aired with the series. As well as the rights to the newest series, "Sailor Moon Crystal," which premiered on Japanese television on July 5. Viewers can watch subbed episodes of the original and new "Sailor Moon" series on Hulu and Viz Media's streaming site, NeonAlley.com
