The Jujutsu Kaisen movie has amassed immense popularity in recent times. The release of the anime adaptation has helped it accumulate a much bigger fanbase (since there are some anime-only fans).
Studio MAPPA produced the Jujutsu Kaisen anime adaptation, which had a total of 24 episodes. It aired on TV and streaming platforms from October 2020 till March 2021.
Recently, there were amazing news announcements that the Jujutsu Kaisen movie was going to premiere on Christmas Eve of this year. Even the movie will be produced by Studio MAPPA.
There have been many more small announcements about the Jujutsu Kaisen movie. On the 13th of June 2021, a key visual was made public and this visual revealed key details about the plot and characters of Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie.
This new movie will be the prequel to the main plot of the anime. The main character of the new movie won’t be fan favourite Yuji Itadori but rather, someone whom many fans might not be aware of.
The Jujutsu Kaisen movie will focus on the character of Yuta Okkotsu and his tragic relationship with Rika. It’ll delve into how Curses came to be formed and how they affect ordinary people in adverse ways.

Yuta’s character design and art have been revealed to the public. This is an excellent and enthralling announcement because Yuta’s character has never been shown. Yuta has only been mentioned in passing in the manga, because of which many fans didn’t realize how critical he was to the entire franchise.
Are you excited about Yuta’s character design? Let us know in the comments below.
