Jujutsu Kaisen has dropped the final trailer for Jujutsu Kaisen 0 before the movie hits theaters in Japan! After the first season of the anime came to an end, fans were wondering what could be in the cards next for the franchise. The answer was soon revealed to be a new feature film that adapts the official prequel series, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, which takes place a year before the events of the main series. As the film gets closer to its release in Japan we have gotten better and better looks, but now we’ve been given the best look at the new movie yet.
With Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie, releasing in theaters in Japan on December 24th (which is actually also a very important day to the events of the movie as well), Toho Animation has released a brand new trailer during Jump Festa 2022 that will serve as the final official trailer ahead of the film’s release. It gives us our best look at the fights coming in the prequel movie as well as some of the bigger moments for Yuta and the other Jujutsu Tech first years that we meet much later in the anime series. You can check out the new trailer below:
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 might be releasing in theaters in Japan on December 24th, but there has unfortunately yet to be any international release plans made known as of this writing. Directed by returning director Sunghoo Park for Studio MAPPA, the film stars the likes of Yuichi Nakamura as Satoru Gojo, Takahiro Sakurai as Suguru Geto, Mikako Komatsu as Maki Zenin, Koki Uchiyama as Toge Inumaki, and Tomokazu Seki as Panda, Megumi Ogata as Yuta Okkotsu, Kana Hanazawa as Rika Orimoto, Koichi Yamadera as Miguel, Sho Hayami as Larue, Shizuka Itoe as Manami Suda, and real life twin sisters Risae and Satsumi Matsuda as the twin sisters Mimiko and Nanako Hasaba.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Shares Sneak Peek at New Movie’s Exclusive Manga
Jujutsu Kaisen is definitely the biggest work of mangaka Gege Akutami, focusing on Yuji Itadori’s struggles in the supernatural world from both demonic entities and his superpowered classmates. Now, before a second season is confirmed, a prequel film is slated to arrive in Japan later this month, with a first look hitting the net of the manga adaptation that will be made available in theaters screening the movie. While the film hasn’t been announced with a North America release, most fans think it’s a foregone conclusion that Yuta Okkutsu’s story will hit the West.
For those who might not be familiar with Jujutsu Kaisen 0’s origins, the first story in this universe created by Gege Akutami didn’t arrive under the name of Jujutsu Kaisen at all. First hitting the stands as a story titled Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, the manga arrived prior to Jujutsu Kaisen getting its formal name and followed a protagonist who most assuredly wasn’t the Shonen hero we came to know in Yuji Itadori. Taking readers on an adventure that focused on Jujutsu Tech’s young sorcerers and the struggles of Yuta in this supernatural world, it seems as though the prequel is looking to reveal new details about the supernatural world that has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years.
The Unofficial Jujutsu Kaisen Twitter Account shared this new look at the upcoming manga special that will hit theaters in Japan, though there has yet to be news regarding the film’s release in North America and whether or not anime fans in the West will also get the opportunity to get their hands on this new printed story:
While the anime prequel is one of the biggest things that Jujutsu Kaisen fans are looking forward to, many fans of the anime are crossing their fingers that Studio MAPPA is preparing to announce that a second season is in the works for the popular Shonen series, with the first season coming to a close earlier this year. With major events like the Culling Game currently being told in the manga by Gege Akutami, there are plenty of events for a potential second season to cover.
