The upcoming film will be based on Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen 0 manga, which serves as a prequel story to the hit anime series that ended earlier this year after a 24-episode run. The original Jujutsu Kaisen is based on the manga title of the same name. Both the manga and anime have found widespread success in Japan, with the manga having sold over 55 million copies and the anime becoming a smash hit after it premiered in October 2020.
“Yuji Itadori is a high school student with amazing physical abilities, living a normal life,” reads the official synopsis for Jujutsu Kaisen 0. “But one day, in order to save his schoolmate from a ‘curse,’ he eats a special grade cursed object, ‘Sukuna’s Finger,’ and gets the curse within his soul. Itadori, who now shares his body with the cursed spirit ‘Sukuna,’ transfers to an institution specializing in curses, Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, to be guided by the most powerful jujutsu sorcerer, Satoru Gojo… A story of a high school student who carries a curse in order to exorcise it. With no way of turning back, his fierce tale begins to unfold.”
