Go! Princess Pretty Cure the Movie Go! Go!! Gorgeous Triple Feature!!!
screened at the 28th Tokyo International Film Festival Panorama section on October 24. Voice actors Yu Shimamura, Masumi Asano, Yamamura Hibiku, and Miyuki Sawashiro, as well as the directors for each feature Akifumi Zako (A Precious Treasure of Pumpkin Land), Hiroshi Miyamoto (Lefy’s Wonderful Night), and Yukio Kaizawa (Cure Flora and a Mysterious Mirror), attended Shinjuku WALD9 in Tokyo for a “greetings from the stage”.

Director Kaizawa said of Cure Flora and a Mysterious Mirror, “the concept was ‘cute’. I would like children watching to think of the characters as friends, or younger sisters. This is a silent film. I don’t mean silent as in nobody speaks in the film, but rather I tried to make the film like a silent film in which there are voices”, he said, showing confidence fit for a veteran.

Following this, Zako had a smile on his face as he said of his own part, “when you have a princess as a motif, I think you end up making characters that are a bit high and mighty without even realizing what you are doing, however, I made my motto that princesses are strong, kind and beautiful, and tried to make a film that would put the audience in a good mood.” Miyamoto, directing for the first time, said that “the story in Zako’s full length feature was about the princesses being rescued, so I thought I would make mine a story about the princesses doing the rescuing. The tomboy princess is about to give up many times, but looking at her giving it one more go after some encouragement from Pretty Cure, and I really hope to encourage children that might have given up on something to keep at it.”

Shimamura, who performed the part of Haruka Haruno, was pretty excited about the whole thing- “I always put everything into whatever I do, usually recordings for television series, and this time will be no different!” Co-star Asano said that “you would think that each part of a triple feature would be quite short, but actually they are quite long, and full of drama.” Yamamura reflected that “you will see plenty of sparkles and plenty of cute in these films. You will be able to enjoy yourself to the fullest in these 3 worlds.”
