In the next few days, more sketches will be uploaded with the rest of the characters that will appear in the feature film. The film will be released and will be released on December 24 in theaters in Japan.
This project was announced during the final episode of the series on March 26 and will adapt the prequel to the original manga also known as “Volume 0”, whose official title is Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Tokyo Toritsu Jujutsu Koto Senmon Gakkou.
Gege Akutami began publication of the manga in Shueisha publisher’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in March 2018. Currently, serialization of the manga is on hiatus due to health concerns of the author.
