The anime adaptation of Gege Akutami’s mystery-horror manga “Jujutsu Kaisen” will be having a full-length theatrical adaptation out Winter 2021! “Jujutsu Kaisen The Movie 0” will be adapting the manga’s prequel arc of the same title. A teaser video has been released by MAPPA to accompany the announcement.
“Jujutsu Kaisen” tells the story of Yuuji Itadori, an athletic high school student who joins his school’s Occult Club to avoid being forced into his school’s track team. He lives alone with his grandfather, who upon his deathbed asked Yuuji to “always help people”. When the Occult Club he belongs to accidentally unseal a cursed item — a rotting finger, Yuuji swallows the finger to protect his friends.
Yuuji becomes the host of Sukuna, a powerful Curse — but despite his demonic possession, Yuuji is still able to control his body. Yuuji is condemned to find and consume the rest of Sukuna’s fingers, and be executed in order to destroy Sukuna for all eternity.
