The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is just around the corner, and the fans from Japan are ready to spice up their Christmas with some cursed energy. However, fans outside Japan aren’t that lucky. They will have to wait for their regional release to enjoy this film on the theatre screens. I guess it’s the franchise’s way of keeping the hype for the film alive longer. So, when will Jujutsu Kaisen 0 be released in countries like the USA, Canada, Uk, India, and elsewhere?
Considering Jujutsu Kaisen’s widespread popularity in the West, there’s no way that film can be Japan-exclusive. Sooner or later, the film will hit your nearby theatres. Similar confusions arose during the premiere of other anime films like Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, and the recent Fate film. However, every time, the franchise went an extra mile to ensure the fans worldwide didn’t miss out on their masterpiece creation. I doubt if the Jujutsu Kaisen film will be any different, but when could we expect the international releases.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie Release Date in Japan
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film will hit Japanese theatres on 24 December 2021. Not only that, the franchise will publish a new novel revolving around the film’s story on the same day. So, this Christmas eve is set to be a day to look out for all Jujutsu Kaisen fans.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie Global Release in USA, UK, Canada, India, and Elsewhere
According to the latest reports, the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film is set to premiere on March 18, 2022, in Western countries like the USA, Canada, and many more. This is certainly progress compared to the Demon Slayer Mugen train film, which took seven months to hit the North American theatres. Apart from that, Yahoo News Japan confirmed that the Jujutsu Kaisen film is set to release in other Asian countries like South Korea and Hong Kong within February. However, the exact release date for other anime-loving countries like the UK, Australia, and India has not been announced yet. We will update the article as soon as we get an official confirmation.
In a tricky and unclear situation, we must take into consideration the convention other anime films have followed. Weathering with You was the only expectation where people all over the world enjoyed the film within the same month. Sadly, that won’t be the case for Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie. The Demon Slayer: Mugen Train film was released in Japan on 16 October 2020 but arrived in US and Canada in April. It was almost ten months when the film premiered in Indian theatres. Thus, you can expect Jujutsu Kaisen to follow a similar trend with the global release. However, we must keep in mind that Demon Slayer premiered during the COVID 19 pandemic situation resulting in a chain of delays. Things are expected to be a lot smoother this time.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Synopsis
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film will be a prequel to the original anime we have been following since 2022. It will follow Yuta Okkotsu, who has been haunted by a special grade curse ever since his friend’s traffic accident. Little did the boy know that his beloved friend, Rika, had manifested into a fierce cursed spirit who protected him against his wish. The matter catches the attention of the Jujutsu sorcerers, and they decide to isolate the boy so that no one else gets hurt.
Even when everyone gives up on him, master Sorcerer, Satoru Gojo, intervenes. The Jujutsu High’s higher-ups are powerless against Gojo’s will, and they had no other option but to suspend Yuta’s execution. Thus, Yuta gets admitted to the Jujutsu High with Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki, and Panda as his classmates. Yuta’s main goal is to learn to control Rika and use it as a blessing by helping others. Well, easier said than done. He soon realizes that the darkness in the jujutsu world stretches a lot further than he initially thought. Can he protect everyone he cares for with the powers he is scared of? We have to wait for the film’s official release to find that out.
