During Jump Festa 2022, the live-action Jujutsu Kaisen, the work created by Gege Akutami, was announced.
One of the big announcements during Jump Festa 2022, according to Anime News Network it will be his arrival as live-action. But, it will not be from the hand of Netflix or another western company, but a curious and important theatrical version that will meet the expectations of its fans.
In 2021, we had the first season of Jujutsu Kaisen that came to the West thanks to Crunchyroll with everything and its respective dubbing designed for Latin America (although in the second season we will have some important changes in this adaptation due to the death of Sukuna’s voice actor) . This great work left us wanting more, after a thrilling season finale where Yuji Itadori and Nobara Kugisaki showed all their power.
Fortunately, in mid-2021 we learned that Jujutsu Kaisen would have a prequel movie which premiered on December 24, 2021 in Japan, reaching sales figures higher than other films such as My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission. Now, the next step is live-action, but it is not intended for Netflix to have it, on the contrary, it is the next step that all popular series in Japan have: A play with original music.
This adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen will be presented in the cities of Tokyo and Osaka between July and August 2022 and the director of the play will be Kensaku Kobayashi and the script will be provided by Kouhei Kuyasu.
