Pretty Cure All Stars (プリキュアオールスターズ PuriKyua Ōru Sutāzu?) or PreCure All Stars is a series of Japanese anime films produced by Toei Animation based on Izumi Todo's Pretty Cure television anime franchise. Each movie features a storyline which crosses over characters from all the Pretty Cure anime series to date. As of March 2014, there are currently six main films in the series.

Common elements[edit]

  • In each movie, which is generally released shortly after a new Pretty Cure television series premieres, the most recent sets of Pretty Cures will often act as the main protagonists of the crossover. In the opening scenes of each movie, a running gag occurs, in which that all of the most recent sets of Pretty Cures bump into each other by accident.
  • Each movie makes the use of Miracle Lights, a small flashlight handed out to audience members during screenings, with the finale encouraging viewers to wave their lights to support the PreCures in defeating the main antagonist. These lights have also been made available for certain movies based on individual series.

As Chiffon suddenly goes missing, Tart goes to a meeting with the other fairies, which is attacked by Fusion. As the fairies go to warn the other Pretty Cures, they engage with battles against Fusion, who leaves after absorbing their most powerful attacks. Having become more powerful, Fusion attacks the Fresh Pretty Cure again and attempts to absorb them, but they are saved by the arrival of the other Pretty Cures who meet each other for the first time. The Cures struggle in battle but are saved by the arrival of Chiffon, who delivers the Rainbow Miracle Lights, allowing the fairies to power up the Cures so they can defeat Fusion.

Pretty Cure All Stars DX3: Deliver the Future! The Rainbow-Colored Flower That Connects the World[edit]

As Hibiki and Kanade end up meeting the other Cures, who were holding a fashion show at a flower mall, they soon find that their world and the various worlds of the Fairies have merged as a result of someone tampering with the Prism Flower, which links the worlds of humans and fairies. The culprit is soon revealed to be a group of villains revived by an evil force known as Black Hole, who is responsible for the creation of Fusion and Bottom. Whilst targeting the Prism Flower, the Cures are scattered by the villains into 3 respective battlefields, and recombined into 3 separate, respective teams, where they face off against their opponents. At first, they struggle to get themselves familiarized with their new settings, but eventually, they manage to overcome all of their trials, as they use their teamwork and strategies in order to defeat their foes. After managing to break free from these fields and defeating the revived villains, the Cures are overpowered by Black Hole, losing their transformation powers in the process. They are given the chance to transform again, but it would mean the sacrifice of the Prism Flower, meaning the Cures and Fairies would have to become separated. Reluctantly, the Cures say their goodbyes and use the Prism Flower's power to defeat Black Hole. Thankfully, a new Prism Flower soon blooms, and the fairies are soon reunited with their friends.

As Fū-chan starts to grow bigger and becomes aware of Ayumi's troubles, he vows revenge on anyone who would make Ayumi suffer, absorbing power from the Smile PreCure to become bigger and more powerful. As the Suite Pretty Cures arrive to assist them, Ayumi stops them, not wanting Fū-chan to be hurt and running away with him. However, Fū-chan soon absorbs Ayumi's mother, pledging to destroy the city, so that Ayumi's wish can be granted.

In a far off school called Fairy Academy, where Tarte is giving a lecture about the Pretty Cure, a rowdy fairy named Guleru and a shy fairy named En-En are called towards a forbidden tree, where a being taking the form of Guleru's Shadow, who takes interest in hearing that the Cures are simply normal girls if they can't transform and convinces Guleru he would be famous if he could obtain their transformation items. Shortly afterwards, the Cures receive invitations to come to Fairy Academy for a party. Meanwhile, Mana, Rikka, Alice and Makoto receive a call from Miyuki and Candy informing them of the party, inviting them to come along as well. Meanwhile at Fairy Academy, Shadow coerces Guleru into capturing the Cures' fairy partners and transformation items, leaving them defenseless against attacking shadow monsters. After most of the Cures are defeated in this manner, Shadow turns his attention towards the Smile PreCures, using a PreCure guidebook to counter their every move and steal their Smile Pacts before imprisoning them in statues like the others. As En-En laments helping Shadow, Miyuki tells him not to worry and asks him to seek out help from the Dokidoki PreCure before being encapsulated herself. With assumedly no more Cures in his way, Shadow reveals his true intentions to destroy the academy and imprison all of its students, much to Guleru's shock. Guleru and En-En manage to find the DokiDoki PreCures and ask for their help in stopping Shadow. As the Cures fight Shadow's minions, Guleru and En-En, assisted by Candy and Pop, manage to find the captured fairies and, with help from the fairy students who use the Miracle Lights, help return the stolen transformation items to the other Cures, allowing them to transform again and restore light to the fairy world. With support from the fairies, the Cures team up to fight against Shadow. As a last resort, Shadow combines all of his strength to become a giant spider, but he is ultimately defeated by the combined might of the Pretty Cure, reduced to his original size in the process. Realising the error of his ways, Guleru befriends his shadow, who returns to his rightful place. As Guleru and En-En become determined to become Precure fairies, the Cures help repair the academy before having a proper party.
