Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Special is a 2011 TV special produced by Toei Company Ltd., Walt Disney Television Animation, FremantleMedia, and WNET New York.


The Sailor Senshi, Mamoru, Luna, and Artemis go on a well-earned vacation to the Big Apple shortly after their fight against Chaos. There, they meet new friends, including Andalasia Fashions co-owners Giselle and Robert Philip and self-help author Nathaniel. Unknown to them, an all-new, even deadlier enemy than Chaos, Omega, is about to wreak havoc on New York City, forcing the Sailor Senshi back into action once again.

By the time the special was produced, Chiyoko Kawashima and Michie Tomizawa had retired from voice acting, Elijah Wood's voice had already deepened, and Madeline Kahn had died. They were replaced by Megumi Nakajima, Ayana Taketatsu, Rupert Grint, and Jennifer Tilly, respectively. Junichi Sato was well aware of Kahn's passing, and he ordered Fumihiko Shimo to refrain from writing Michiru Kaioh/Sailor Neptune out of the special, as Kahn would've wanted the character to move on. Tilly was cast after several professional actresses auditioned for the part. The special starts with a 30-second video tribute to Kahn featuring Michiru/Sailor Neptune, with a freeze frame on the final clip as "In memory of MADELINE KAHN" is displayed.

Also, Mickey Rourke had grown too old to effectively continue voicing Mamoru Chiba/Tuxedo Kamen, and after a week of auditions, Robert Pattinson got the part. B.J. Ward, Cyndi Lauper, Megumi Ogata, and Yasuhiro Takato elected not to reprise their roles. Naelee Rae was cast as Sailor Saturn following auditions. Lauper and Ogata stepped aside to let Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, the latter who is able to effectively copy Ogata's voice naturally, fill their respective shoes. Kappei Yamaguchi was cast as Artemis following his appearance in Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.
