The film is based on the manga of the same name published by JUMP COMICS / Shueisha, a prequel to the smash hit supernatural adventure series from Gege Akutami.

The anime series JUJUTSU KAISEN is based on the best-selling manga of the same title, serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump, which has sold over 60 million copies in Japan. In the U.S., the series is published by VIZ Media. The series was named Anime of the Year by the Crunchyroll Anime Awards in 2021. Both Crunchyroll and Funimation have the entire series on their platforms, both subbed and dubbed, for fans to catch up on before seeing the theatrical experience.

JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 is animated by MAPPA and directed by Sunghoo Park. The film is being distributed in the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand by Crunchyroll in association with Funimation and in additional European countries by Crunchyroll and Wakanim. 

Official synopsis: When they were children, Rika Orimoto (voiced by Kana Hanazawa) was killed in a traffic accident right before the eyes of Yuta Okkotsu (Megumi Ogata), the close friend she with whom she’d made a pact to marry as adults. Rika became an apparition, and Yuta longed for his own death after suffering under her curse, but the greatest Jujutsu sorcerer, Satoru Gojo (Yuichi Nakamure), welcomed him into Jujutsu High. There, Yuta meets classmates Maki Zen’in (Mikako Komatsu), Toge Inumaki (Koki Uchiyama) and Panda (Tomokazu Seki), and finally finds his determination to break Rika-chan’s curse.

Meanwhile, the vile curse user Suguru Geto (Takahiro Sakurai), who was expelled from the school for massacring ordinary people, appears before Yuta and the others and promises to carry out “the Night Parade of a Hundred Demons” on December 24. While Geto advocates for creating a paradise for only jujutsu sorcerers, he unleashes a thousand curses upon Shinjuku and Kyoto to exterminate all non-sorcerers. Will Yuta be able to stop Geto in the end? And will he finally break Rika’s curse…?

The official motion picture soundtrack to JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 is available now on Spotify.
