Will There Be a Second Demon Slayer Movie? Demon Slayer Movie 2 Rumours

One of the hottest properties in the world right now, Demon Slayer seems to be going from success to success. Its first movie adaptation rewrote the rulebook concerning what an anime film can achieve and has left fans across the world wondering when will we see a second Demon Slayer Movie?

While there’s a lot of hype on Demon Slayer Season 3 right now, we’re leaping forward to predict when Demon Slayer might grace the silver screen again.

While another Demon Slayer movie hasn’t been confirmed, it’s fair to assume that there will be a second eventually given the success of Mugen Train.

Last year, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train became the highest-grossing anime movie worldwide. The film was a commercial and critical success, attracting a small army of new fans to the series.

Not only did the film expand the anime’s fanbase, but it was also hugely appealing to existing fans who got to see their favourite series on the big screen.

Mugen Train was a success in every sense of the word. With the series continuing to reach new heights of popularity, we’ll likely see another movie come out in the future.

As of the time of writing, we can only speculate what a second Demon Slayer movie might cover. However, an educated guess is that the second movie might be the Infinity Castle Arc.

Assuming the movie will be canon, as with Mugen Train, we can make an educated guess by looking through the order and release of the story so far:

Story Arc(s) Release Format Release Year
Arc 1-6Demon Slayer Season 1TV Series2019
Arc 7 (Mugen Train)Demon Slayer: Mugen TrainFilm2020
Arc 8 (Entertainment District Arc)Demon Slayer: Entertainment District ArcTV Series2021
Arc 9 (Swordsmith Village Arc)Demon Slayer: Swordsmith Village ArcTV Series2022/2023

If the Swordsmith Village Arc is a success, one of the arcs after that may be turned into a movie.

The next arc after season 3 is the Hashira Training Arc, which might not have the big, showpiece moments like Mugen Train. There are also some rumours suggesting it might form part of season 3, similar to the Rehabilitation Training Arc at the end of season 1.

If the Hashira Training Arc is left for TV, that would leave the potential for a film adaptation of what’s called the Final Battle Arc.

The Final Battle Arc itself is broken down into two sections, the first of which is the Infinity Castle Arc.

The Infinity Castle, already featured prominently in the anime (the shifting location where Muzan addresses his demons), would make for the perfect big-screen experience, delivering major visuals and larger than life enemies.

Of course, there is always the potential for a spin-off movie that’s not canon, like many have predicted for the Black Clover movie. However, right now, that feels quite unlikely.

Will We See a Demon Slayer Movie in 2023?

Based on our prediction above, it’s unlikely we’ll see a Demon Slayer movie in 2023.

After season 3, we might see the Hashira Training Arc as a TV series. After that, we could see a new Demon Slayer movie. Given the yearly releases so far, that would put the new movie at sometime around 2024, or maybe even 2025.

Thankfully, we won’t be starved of new Demon Slayer content until the new film is released. There is plenty of Demon Slayer to watch with the TV anime, and Tanjiro’s journey is far from finished yet!
