The manga first launched in 1994 and as of September 2022 has 102 tankouban volumes. The manga has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday and has been adapted into a TV anime that began in 1996 and is currently ongoing. 

The plot of Detective Conan follows a precocious high school student named Jimmy Kudo who uses his keen powers of observation and astute intuition to solve mysteries that even law enforcement officials are unable to solve. 

When he was working on catching one suspect in particular, he was captured and force-fed a strange chemical that physically transformed him into a child. After assuming the pseudonym Conan Edogawa, he attempts to find the people who did this to him. 

Jimmy now tirelessly searches for a cure for his bizarre condition while continuing to help the police solve their toughest cases.

The film is being directed by Yuzuru Tachikawa and Takeharu Sakurai is writing the screenplay. Yūgo Kanno is composing the music.
