Sailormoon-official.com has announced an update on the 2019 New Musical Project. As you can see, with a quick Google translate, the story will be based on the The Lover of Princess Kaguya (Kaguyahime no Koibtio) short story from the manga, which we all know was also the basis for the Sailor Moon S movie.
With this announcement, they have also pushed back the date to summer 2020.

So it appears to not be a full musical but I’m guessing possibly a concert like performance, maybe similar in fashion to the fankans of the old Myus.
Exciting times for Myu fans, old and new alike!
