I just can't wrap my head around all this! So with our power combined, let's go take back those shining precious memories!!
Movie Exclusive Characters
- Miden - A white teru teru bōzu-like monster that steals the Pretty Cures' memories and powers, which turns them into infants. It also sprouts offshoots that swarm like locusts.
- This is the first crossover movie that premiered in fall.
- All 55 Cures had speaking roles.
- Although all main character Pretty Cures in the TV series return, Cure Echo is noticeably absent, possibly due to her appearing primarily in the All Stars movies rather than any of the Pretty Cure seasons. She did, however, cameo in episode 37 of HUGtto! Pretty Cure that promotes this movie.
- The Miracle Light for this movie is called the "Miracle❤️Memories Light".
- During the release day, this movie was awarded the Guinness World Record title for the "Most Magical Warriors in An Anime Film" .
- According to the official website, it states that "In order to meet the guidelines, each of the 55 characters had to speak and fight using magical powers in the film."
- As the original first season Futari wa Pretty Cure did not have a theatrical feature released during its run, this movie is the first one to bear its name without the additional Max Heart denoting the second season.
- This is the first full-length crossover movie to feature the team of a season that already debuted in the previous movie. However, it's not the first time this happens, as in Pretty Cure All Stars DX: 3D Theatre the Suite Pretty Cure♪ team (sans Cure Muse) is the protagonist again after their debut in DX3.
- This is also the second All Stars movie where all members of the current team are featured. The first time was on New Stage when the Smile team debuted.
