Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 aired its last episode on March 27 this year. The show ended on a spectacular and action-packed team-up between Itadori and Kugisaki leaving our jaws on the floor. Jujutsu Kaisen is celebrated for its beautiful animation, fantastic action, immensely likeable characters and fresh storyline. It quickly became a fan favourite and quickly rose on top of every popularity chart. With the announcement of the Jujutsu Kaisen movie, let’s explore what we know so far.
Jujutsu Kaisen Movie Release Date
There is no official release date set for the movie as of yet. However, it can be expected to be released in Japan by early 2022. Since we do not have an official release date yet, we can’t be sure how or when the film will be distributed outside of Japan. But considering the anime’s popularity, we can safely assume there will be a worldwide dubbed release by mid 2022.
While we might have to wait for a while before we get to see our Jujutsu Sorcerers on-screen, it is reassuring to know the movie will be animated by MAPPA studio. MAPPA is known for many well-appreciated anime series such as Yuri on Ice, Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan’s last season.
