Jujutsu Kaisen’s anime was a massive hit amongst all anime lovers, but now the series aims to break box-office records with its upcoming movie!
Which arc will the movie adapt? Are there any new characters? Which studio will animate it? We have the answer to all your questions regarding the film!
The anime’s 24th and final episode has just finished airing, and the big news is already in. Get ready for another dose of fighting against curses and Gojou’s dashing smirk.
Jujutsu Kaisen’s new movie will premiere in Winter 2022. It is adapting Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School, the series’ prequel manga.
Visuals & Trailers
One trailer has been released along with one illustration by Gege Akutami.
Both show Yuta Okkotsu, the main character of the upcoming movie, and his special grade curse, Rika.
Since the movie’s plot will adapt Volume 0 of the manga, the story will be much different from that of the anime. The main characters will be Yuta Okkotsu, Satoru Gojou, Zenin Maki, Inumaki Toge, and Panda.
Rika was the childhood friend of Yuta. However, he couldn’t bear her sudden death and denied reality, which ultimately led her to becoming a curse.
Gojou rescues him from execution just like he did with Yuji, and trains Yuta under Jujutsu High School.
Yuta has to learn to access Rika’s powers for exorcism and free her from the miserable state of being a curse.
Crunchyroll simul-streamed all the episodes of Jujutsu Kaisen outside of Asia. Although it has not been announced yet, Crunchyroll might stream the movie after its premiere.
The movie might premiere in American theatres after a month or so of its Japan debut.
Yuta in the Manga
Yuta’s past was revealed in Volume 0 of Jujutsu Kaisen. However, he made his debut in the actual Jujutsu Kaisen manga pretty recently in chapter 137 in the Yuji Execution arc .
Yuta is the appointed executioner of Yuji. There is a chance that Season 2 of the anime will adapt the arc. Thus, this film will act as a proper introduction to Yuta.
The film is bound to draw in a lot of audience, keeping in mind Jujutsu Kaisen anime’s colossal success. If the movie earns a decent amount, then its second season will also get a major boost.
Will the new movie give us an adrenaline rush just like its anime, or will it be even better? Fingers crossed!
