As pointed out by @Robert88UK on Twitter Netflix has secured exclusive rights to the English Adaptation of the Smile Precure! anime series; and it will be known as Glitter Force!
Unfortunately thats where the good news ends; as Saban Brands, the company responsible for bringing it to English countries, have opted to adapt it to the English market to make it much more accessible for auidiences (and younger generations) within English speaking countries. As a result of this not only has the anime’s title been changed but the lovable characters have also received a name change; for instance Miyuki Hoshizora is now known as Emily / Cure Happy.
Although it’s yet to be confirmed it’s assumed that Saban Brands will have also ‘edited’ the anime series in some form to bring it down to an americanised (if thats even a word) standard; with potential violence or questionable content removed.
Streaming of Glitter Force! will begin on Netflix starting from the 18th December 2015; whereby the entire first season will be on offer.
