Sailor Moon and Star Wars are two franchises that have become pillars in their respective mediums. While the former doesn’t have any new anime projects confirmed on the horizon, the latter continues to create television projects and movies that further flesh out the universe of the Jedi and the Sith. Now, one cosplayer has taken the opportunity to imagine what the leader of the Sailor Scouts would look like if she were to become a part of the Jedi Order.

While the future is up in the air for Usagi in the anime world, Daisy Ridley is set to return to the galaxy far, far away as Disney had previously announced that her character Rey will return with a new movie in the future. During a recent interview, Ridley discussed whether the next chapter in Rey’s life will begin filming this year, “I think it could be this year. It could be, but I’m not sure. I think to be honest, the writers’ strike has obviously delayed quite a lot of things. So the intention was later this year. Hopefully, it will be. Otherwise, top of next, I would imagine.” As of the writing of this article, director Sharmeen Obaid-Shinoy will be creating the film that might see Rey resurrecting the Jedi Order.

While Sailor Moon has never had an official crossover with Star Wars, Disney has been venturing into the anime world as of late. Star Wars: Visions was the first project that saw anime studios take on the beloved franchise, creating a cavalcade of stories that took place in the past, present, and future of the series.
