crossover movies that teams up all of the Pretty Cure teams. Each film features Cures from all continuities joining forces to combat a new powerful foe, with focus given to the teams from the currently-airing season and the recently-ended one.The franchise started out as a five-minute short that was added as a bonus to the Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GO!GO! movie DVD, which told the first encounter between the Futari wa Pretty Cure MaX Heart, Futari Wa Pretty Cure Splash Star and Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GO!GO! teams, as well as the prototype of the Big Bad for two of the movies.The first three movies (DX, DX2 and DX3) follow a very simple formula: the current generation of Pretty Cure (Fresh, HeartCatch and Suite, respectively) encounter a new Big Bad who is seeking a MacGuffin to destroy the world, and resurrects a team of bad guys from previous series to help him. The current Pretty Cure team up with the previous generations of Pretty Cure to kick ass, with the finale involving the use of "Miracle Lights" (a fourth-wall-breaking toy that the kids in the audience are encouraged to wave at this point) to power up the Pretty Cure enough to save the day.New Stage: Future Friends, the fourth movie, is a Continuity Reboot. Following the public defeat of Fusion in the first movie, the Pretty Cure have become popular heroes and icons in Yokohama. One such fan is Ayumi Sakagami, a shy and lonely middle-school girl who secretly wishes that she could become a Pretty Cure as well. Unfortunately, Fusion is preparing to revive itself once more, and Ayumi finds herself caught in the crossfire after she befriends a mysterious yellow blob she names, "Fuu-chan".The fifth movie, New Stage 2: Friends of the Heart, does away with the idea of an Original Generation human and instead introduces two new fairies. As for the heroines themselves, they're invited to another world, seemingly as the guests of honor for a "Precure Party" at a school for fairies. However, it's actually a trap by a mysterious creature whose main goal is to steal away their Transformation Trinkets.The sixth movie, New Stage 3: Friends of Eternity has been announced, celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Pretty Cure franchise. The Land of Dreams is under attack by a mysterious force, drawing the Pretty Cure, along with the fairies Grell and Enyen, to protect it and the fairy of dreams, Yumeta. The Happiness Charge Pretty Cure team will appear in this movie, but it is unknown at what capacity (the current trailers only shows Cures Lovely and Princess, but the pre-order items show off Cure Honey).The movies are shameless cash-ins for the titular Cash Cow Franchise, but the chance to see all the Cures teaming up for an epic battle and interacting with one another is entertaining in its own right, and the series has proved successful.The series' Spear Counterparts would be Super Sentai's Super Sentai VS. movies and Kamen Rider's Movie War movies.The characters exclusive to these movies is listed Here.
