After having been in issue for about half a year, the first season of Jujutsu Kaisen arrived on March 26 to its end with its twenty-fourth chapter. He did so, of course, under the watchful eye of a fandom that does not stop growing and put the spotlight on Gege Akutami’s original work. The Japanese public is the living proof of this: millions and millions of readers were added to which, to date, it is the most successful work of the Weekly Shônen Jump together with One Piece. In publication since March 2018, Jujutsu Kaisen already exceeds 50 million copies in circulation —Including both physical and digital copies— and everything seems to indicate that it will become the best-selling work of the year in the Japanese country.
Rumors about the future of MAPPA’s adaptation finally came true when the production company officially announced that Jujutsu Kaisen it would expand into a feature film. It will do so by adapting the material corresponding to the volume 0 of the manga, a narrative arc that functions as a prequel to the series itself. It is true that several months have passed since the project was announced, but it has been now, on the occasion of Juju Fest 2021 when the release date of the film has been confirmed. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 in Japan: December 24, 2021. A premiere that, it is hoped, will arrive in one way or another to Spain to enjoy one of the most impressive films of the year. Regarding the staff technical, everything seems to indicate that Sunghoo Park He will return to directing with the help of many of the names that have been part of the first season of production. In the absence of official confirmation, it has been released a first teaser trailer with images from the tape itself; images that, on this occasion, go something beyond the manga itself in “movement”.
