Gekijō-ban Jujutsu Kaisen 0 or Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie is based on Akutami's series that serves as a prequel to the main manga. The series follows Yuta Okkotsu, a high school student who is plagued by his childhood friend Rika who has turned into a Curse. With the help of Saturo Gojo, Yuta learns about a school for fledgling exorcists and tries to figure out how to rid himself of the Curse.
The film's release date announcement is certainly welcome news after Akutami confirmed that the manga is taking a month-long hiatus while he takes a break due to health issues. The mangaka assured fans that his condition is not serious and that Jujutsu Kaisen will resume after one month.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie will be animated by MAPPA and distributed by TOHO. The film is scheduled for release on December 24, 2021.
