Dua Lipa evolves into Sailor Moon in the music video for Levitating that debuted earlier this year
While the singer evolves ahead of her show, she channels her inner Sailor Moon, as well as the Sailor Scouts. A Japanese studio that specialised in retro anime clips, was responsible for the creation of this video
English singer and songwriter Dua Lipa is now at the top of the charts, and the singer is drinking up all of the attention. Now, the British singer-songwriter is stretching out with their latest music video, which brings “Levitating” to life in a nostalgic way. And besides, Dua Lipa’s team enlisted the help of a Japanese studio to create the anime music video, which pays tribute to some of the best shows from the 1980s and 1990s.
Dua Lipa gives her unique anime identity in the song video, which starts with a close look at the moon. Dua Lipa went on to perform a star-studded dance sequence high above Earth after driving a stunning pink convertible high into space.
It’s hard not to think about Sailor Moon while watching this music video. The parallels are obvious, from the animations to the video’s moon imagery. Dua Lipa living up to the universe with her music, wanders through space, while Sailor Moon spends most of her time guarding the galaxy against enemies. Singer-writer Dua Lipa has a sizable fan base – as evident by the video – who are ready to see her play live.

The great animation
Did we mention Dua Lipa’s special miraculous girl transformation sequence? While the singer evolves ahead of her show, she channels her inner Sailor Moon, as well as the Sailor Scouts.
NOSTALOOK, a Japanese studio that specialised in retro anime clips, was responsible for the creation of this video. The music video’s creative director was Yu Tsubaki, and the screenplay was overseen by Kenta Orisaka. Yuta Ueno then came in to produce the video, which has received a lot of positive feedback from fans across the world.
However, the song “Levitating” can be found on Dua Lipa’s 2020 album Future Nostalgia, which was launched in 2020. The album so far has been named in the album to their “Best of 2020” lists.
So, if you like vintage anime programs like Sailor Moon, you should definitely watch out this song video!
