WHAT WE KNOW
The amazingly successful first season of the anime that follows Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, and Nobara Kugisaki lasted 24 stunning episodes. The movie will not be a continuation of the first season. It will be a prequel following Yuta Okkotsu as the main protagonist. Fans of the anime will, however, notice a couple of familiar faces. We get to see more of Satoru Gojo, for me one of the best characters ever created, and I cannot wait to see more of the ever-interesting Gojo. Panda, Maki Zenin, and Toge Inumaki, second-year students from Jujutsu High, will all feature in the upcoming movie. Hopefully, we get to see more of their backstories, as all of them are exceptionally interesting characters.
WHO WILL BE THE BIG BAD….
As for the antagonist, Suguru Geto will fill that spectacular role again. The diabolical character with his unspeakable acts of murder and destruction is a perfect fit. Yuta will be voiced by Megumi Ogata, known for Shinji Ikari (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Kurama (Yu Yu Hakusho). Yuta will have to face Suguru Geto in a one-on-one battle of epic proportions before the end of the movie.
WHAT jujutsu Kaisen 0 ABOUT?
The movie will follow the four-part manga prequel. Originally named Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School before it got renamed Jujutsu Kaisen 0. It follows the story of Yuta; a special grade cursed human. Cursed by the spirit of his childhood friend Rika Orimoto. Rika died tragically when she was hit by a car, shortly after giving Yuta a wedding ring on his birthday. Making a promise that they would one day get married no matter what. Yuta`s special condition attracts the sorcerers from Jujutsu High and is convinced by Gojo to join the school. Yuta learns how to control the curse to help humanity instead of causing needless destruction. The plot will give fans a better understanding of the world and the side characters of the first season while staying connected to the timeline of Jujutsu Kaisen.
WHEN WILL IT BE RELEASED
The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is set to release in Japan on 24 December 2021. If you know the source material, you will know that this date is significant. It lines up with the same day that Suguru Geto orchestrated a terrorist attack on the cities of Kyoto and Shinjuku known as Night Parade of a Hundred Demons.
There is still no word on the anticipated second season of the popular anime. At least we are getting a movie in the coming months and some more of the ever-entertaining Gojo.
