MAPPA has revealed a new teaser trailer for Jujutsu Kaisen 0: the Movie, the upcoming prequel film of Jujutsu Kaisen anime. The movie will open in theatres in Japan on December 24, 2021.
The trailer not only gives us a better look at Yuta Okkotsu, the movie’s main character, it also confirms that Okkotsu will be voiced by Megumi Ogata, who is known to voice over Shinji Ikari in Neon Genesis Evangelion and Kurama in Yu Yu Hakusho.
The film follows Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School manga, which is a prequel of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime series and centers on Yuta Okkotsu. Yuta was initially a special grade cursed human haunted by his late childhood friend, Rika Orimoto. He was mentored by Satoru Gojo, who enrolled him at Tokyo Jujutsu High.
MAPPA also revealed the character visuals of Maki Zen’in, Toge Inumaki, and Panda when they were in their first year at Tokyo Jujutsu High.
