Jujutsu Kaisen 0 trailer shows off the movie’s prequel cast, villain

Of course, Gojo’s back too

It’s time to return to the world of demons and curses with the latest trailer for Jujutsu Kaisen 0. the prequel movie to the popular anime series. The movie’s latest trailer, which was released on Thursday, shows off some of its main characters and gives a preview of the new theme song.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 takes place before the events of the original manga and fallows a character named Yuta. Yuta’s childhood best friend Rika is killed in a car accident and her cursed spirit haunts him wherever he goes. But once he arrives as the Jujutsu Academy, fan favorite characters like Gojo help teach him why her spirit appears and what he can do with it. The new trailer also gives viewers a brief look at Suguru Geto, the main antagonist of the prequel movie.

Near the end of the trailer, MAPPA Studio gives fans a brief preview of the movie’s opening theme song, “Itto” by King Gnu, as well. The song fits right in with the series’ other music and is great for underscoring all of the cursed action that happens throughout the second half of the trailer.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is set for release in theaters in Japan on Dec. 24. While the movie doesn’t have an official release date in the rest of the world just yet, it’s likely to follow the pattern of other anime feature releases and come out sometime in 2022.
