During the time Creator/ToeiAnimation shopped the rights to the ''Anime/SailorMoon'' anime around in North America, it received a pitch from Toon Makers and Renaissance Atlantic (the same company that handled the adaptations of ''SuperSentai'' into ''PowerRangers'' for SabanEntertainment). This pitch, dubbed "Saban Moon" by fans[[note]] Although Saban actually had no involvement with it whatsoever[[/note]], turned out even ''less'' faithful to the source material than the much-maligned North American dub.

It also (obviously) never got picked up, so what little anyone knows about this pitch comes from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtkVMZA7Qwc a two-minute music video]] that features footage from from a 17-minute pilot episode (which, as of this writing, has never seen the light of day), [[http://cartoonhistorian.blogspot.co.uk/2010/01/cartoon-historian-lesson-6-saban-moon.html an interview]] with Rocky Solotoff, the pilot's director and producer, and several [[http://sailormoonnews.com/2012/11/02/complete-toon-makers-sailor-moon-voice-over-script/ scripts]] and [[http://sailormoonnews.com/2012/11/06/tuxedo-masks-face-and-mercurys-wheel-chair-from-toon-makers-sailor-moon/#more-1013 cels]] that turned up in late 2012. This version would have seen the civilian lives of the "Sailor Senshi / Soldiers / Scouts / Guardians" (referred to in this version as the "Princess Fighters") filmed in live-action segments that featured an [[FiveTokenBand ethnically- and disability-diverse cast]] (the pilot made Sailor Jupiter [[RaceLift black]] and Sailor Mercury a wheelchair user).

The only footage of this pilot in circulation came from a panel at an [[FanConvention anime convention]]; this low-quality shakey-cam footage also recorded the reactions of the convention's audience. A version with the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ODz7ankdTHw perspective corrected]] exists, as does a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7Hge38AkFg slightly longer version]] which contains some of the preamble from panel host Allen Hasting (the author of the computer graphics software package Lightwave 3D who claims to have designed the vehicles, even though Rocky Solotoff said he didn't use Lightwave and a completely different person designed the vehicles). Not much else was known about the pilot until late 2012 when suddenly cels and copies of the animated portion's shooting script started appearing on eBay after the storage locker of a former Toon Makers executive was repossessed. For the first time, the characters names and the plot were actually known, though much remains unknown (such as how the live-action segments would have been worked into the plot.)

* FiveTokenBand: Sailor Jupiter was black, Sailor Mercury was a Wheelchair user and had long red hair, and Sailor Venus was depicted with dark hair and has been speculated to have been a Latina. Ironically, perhaps, only one – who appears to be Sailor Mars – was Asian.
* HandicappedBadass: Sailor Mercury is now a wheelchair user. Instead of a sailboard, she has what appears to be a LeonardoDaVinci flier for space (since she can't stand and sail), and a laser-powered flying wheelchair for ground combat. Interestingly, despite the series' implied background of the girls fleeing home in the face of war, it is never explained why Mercury is in a wheelchair.

* AdaptationDyeJob: Sailor Venus became a brunette, as opposed to her traditional blond hair. Although her ethnicity has never been confirmed, there is speculation that it overlaps with a RaceLift to make her Latina or Mediterranean. Her uniform also changed from being orange to being a bright yellow with orange accents.
