Sailor Moon Scandalous – PSPSPS: I love you
In this follow up to his post-2020 parody fandub of the iconic 90s anime Sailor Moon presented last year at TQFF, Harjot Bal rewrites Sailor Moon as a dark comedy that satirizes issues related to queer folx, women, and people of colour. In this parody feature, created for marginalized people by marginalized people, Luna struggles to find meaning outside of her thankless job of managing the Sailor Scouts. Desperate to reclaim her “womanhood,” she falls head over paws in lust with a toxic man who is sabotaging his relationship with a renowned LatinX woman astronaut. Meanwhile, an icy villainess descends on Earth, unleashing harsh snowstorms fitting for a company Christmas party that will hopefully earn her a well-deserved promotion.
