After much anticipation, details about Demon Slayer Season 3 have finally been revealed. Along with its broadcast date, Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village also announced a movie release in March in the US and Canada.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 3 Release Date
After the Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village anime was revealed at the end of Season 2, many fans speculated if the follow-up is a series or a movie.
After all, the Mugen Train arc was adapted into a movie that became the biggest anime film in Japan.
Adding to the confusion is the fact that the next Demon Slayer anime will get a theatrical release in the US, Canada, Japan, and other countries.
Though it was confirmed that the Swordsmith Village arc is a TV anime series and not a feature film.
The upcoming cinema release is instead a movie cut of the Entertainment District arc finale and Season 3’s first episode.
The upcoming cinema release will allow fans to get a first look at the highly anticipated third season.
Though even if you can’t watch it, you can still look forward to Demon Slayer Season 3's premiere in April 2023. The upcoming anime will begin airing on Fuji TV in April in Japan.
But right now, there’s no final word yet on when and where the series will be streamed in Japan.
Given that the upcoming cinema release is handled by Crunchyroll, it’s highly likely that Season 3 will also be streamed on Crunchyroll come April.
Swordsmith Village Movie Release
If you want to see it as early as possible, the upcoming cinema release of Season 3’s opening will premiere at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on February 18, 2023.
This movie version has a feature-length cut that combines Episodes 10 and 11 of the Entertainment District arc and the first episode of the Swordsmith Village arc.
Its premiere will also be attended by Tanjiro VA Natsuki Hanae, Aniplex producer Yuma Takahashi, and OP singer Aimer.
Following the premiere, the movie version will be released in select American and Canadian cinemas on March 3, 2023.
