The Jujutsu Kaisen anime series began on the 3rd of October of last year. And ended on the 27th of March of this year and with Studio Mappa giving it their all for this series, ending on such a high note with endless possibilities. With the series garnering a huge amount of fans by the end of its 24 episode run. It was bound to be picked up for a second season. But of course, a second season will most likely be coming out at the end of 2022 at its earliest. Not to worry for fans looking for more Jujutsu Kaisen content. Studio Mappa has announced that they will be putting out a Jujutsu Kaisen movie in December.
We can see from the trailer that the story revolves around Yuta Okkotsu. Who is unknown to fans of the anime at the moment. And will focus directly on the Night Parade of 100 demons. Which will take place on the 24th of December in the year 2017. The trailer itself was released on Youtube, the same day the first season of Jujutsu Kaisen ended. So it seems that Studio Mappa was already aiming for a Jujutsu Kaisen movie even before the first season had ended. And while the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen has already been greenlit, it will still be some time before we actually see anything from the second season. At least not this year anyway and will most likely see a trailer or sneak peek by early or mid-2022.
What Will Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Be About?
Judging by the trailer, the movie will be about the Night Parade of 100 demons. Which is a prequel to the Jujutsu Kaisen story. So in this setting, we will most likely not be following Itadori or the group of first years from the series. Instead, we will most likely be seeing what went down before they ever came into the picture being introduced to new characters that have not yet entered the show. Like Yuta Okkutsu who is Yuji’s senior, only being mentioned in the show and not introduced yet. Of course, there will also be well-known characters as well like Gojo and Todo. Todo himself has already mentioned the Night Parade of 100 demons. In the series and his involvement in the fight against the demons there.
With the movie hitting cinemas on the 24th of December. It will still be a long wait for fans of the series. But judging by the trailer and the fact that Studio Mappa (who are also producing the series as well) will be producing the movie. It looks like it will be one to watch out for this winter. And with the author of the Manga coming back to the series after a hiatus it looks like things will be picking up a bit for the series.
