The upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen movie has dropped a new key art, teasing what fans will see in the film.
Titled Jujutsu Kaisen 0, it has been dropping important movie details as of late, from the first-ever promotional snap to its official release date. So, what will the new Jujutsu Kaisen new movie have in store?
A New Key Art
The movie’s new key art features Yuta Okkotsu. According to Comicbook, fans are about to see a new Yuta here.
In the full look Twitter user @IDuckyx shares, the character can be seen with a whole new design. The same image can be seen on Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump.
He will be far different from the Yuta fans used to see in the anime series. Here, he will be in his first year at Tokyo’s Jujutsu Tech.
Instead of Yuji Itadori, the new Jujutsu Kaisen movie will follow Yuta’s story.
After the anime’s first season, the next story fans are about to see is from the movie.
From here, a second season will soon come.
The film holds an important part of the canon as it will adapt the prequel to Gege Akutami’s manga.
Titled Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, it is now known as Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Jujutsu High in English.
The First Promotional Image
Meanwhile, in the first Jujutsu Kaisen movie promotional image, it shows Yuta and his childhood friend, Rika.
Animated by studio MAPPA, it will tell Yuta’s story as he has been hunted by a girl’s spirit, owned by the woman he once loved, Rika.
Sadly, her spirit became a Curse – an evil-minded one that feeds on humans’ negative emotions, CBR noted.
Sure, Rika’s spirit wants to protect Yuta, but the monster in her wants to hurt anyone who gets close to him.
So, Yuta goes into a self-imposed exile until he becomes a part of Jujutsu High. Here, he learns the skills he needs to control Rika’s spirit and use their combined abilities instead to fight other Curses and protect humanity.
Other prominent characters the film will feature are Satoru Gojo and Toge Inumaki. Sadly, Yuji may not appear here.
The film’s coming was officially announced after the Season 1 finale aired. The second season’s production has now, reportedly, begun amid Akutami’s one-month break.
However, there are no words yet on when it will be out. Anyhow, the Juju Fest 2021 officially announced the new Jujutsu Kaisen movie would drop on Dec. 24.
