I will be hosting the Sailor Moon Celebration at the Ontario Science Centre. I am currently reaching out to more possible Sailor Moon guests, but I am proud to announce that our first guest of honour is Roland Parliament!
Roland will be doing a Q&A session with the fans and will be available for autographs and photo ops. If you haven’t had a chance yet to buy his book (which I recommend for anyone interested in a behind-the-scenes look at the original dub), you can order a copy in advance from his website. Roland will be happy to sign and personalize your copy in person.
Roland would love to have copies available to sell to attendees, and if 50 books are ordered soon, he will bring them to the event and deliver to you in person!
Other events at the Sailor Moon Celebration at the Ontario Science Centre will include panels & presentations such as:
The latest Sailor Moon merchandise news
Sailor Moon Crystal versus Sailor Moon Classic – discussing the differences
Win, Lose, or Draw!
The event costs $10 to attend and will be running one day only on August 15th. Tentative times are 10am-4pm, but this may change.
If a more casual event is your style, there is also going to be a Sailor Moon picnic on Toronto island, from 12pm-5pm, hosted by Abby Green.
(SPOILER WARNING: This post contains a spoiler from yesterday’s Season 5 episode “Do Princesses Dream of Magical Sheep?” If you have not watched it yet, scroll down or go watch the episode first. If this piques your interest, check the episode out.)
Sailor Moon has finally been referenced in the series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. In the Season 5 Episode 13 “Do Princesses Dream of Magical Sheep?”, the character of Big Macintosh (Brother of Main Character/Mane 6 pony Applejack) does what is compared to a Sailor Moon-like transformation sequence, music and everything, turning him into an Alicorn (Pegasus & Unicorn) Prince/Princess. The episode aired yesterday and already this clip has gained notoriety based on canon jokes as well as the reference. I will be the first to admit that I am a Brony/Pegasister and have been watching this series for a while but this got me excited.
For those who do not know, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is the 4th generation telling of My Little Pony. It has referenced numerous pop culture icons from Batman to Indiana Jones to even “the Big Lebowski”. This Sailor Moon reference (as well as the Phillip K. Dick reference to the science-fiction novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep” in the title) are just the two newest cultural references that the show has made.
For those who wish to watch the episode, the episodes should be on Netflix soon and can be found with an internet search or on Itunes or Amazon.
