Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Director Teases New Content Never Seen Before


The director behind the upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is teasing new content never seen before in either the manga or the anime releases! The anime’s first season has been incredibly successful for series creator Gege Akutami‘s original manga series, and thus will be making its theatrical feature film debut soon enough as a result. This new movie will be taking on the limited series Akutami had released before the main Jujutsu Kaisen series was finalized, and now acts as an many fans’ first introduction to Yuta Okkotsu. But it seems this won’t be the only new addition to expect.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will be adapting that official prequel series, and while that will be many fans’ first introduction to it, the director behind the film, Sunghoo Park (who returns from directing the anime series), teased that there will be some new material that was not explored in the anime’s first season and material that fans of the manga won’t expect either. In a special message during the ABEMA special for the upcoming movie in Japan (as translated by @soukatsu_ on Twitter), Park opened up about the kinds of new things fans can hope to see.

First, Park had teased that one of the highlights of the movie’s story is the relationship between Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto, which had never been shown in the anime’s first season. This is the same for the manga as well (with an arc specific to the two coming shortly after the Death Painting Arc), but the manga had the benefit of the prequel series setting the stage for the two in the main series. Meaning that the movie will fill in some all important gaps about the two that were only hinted at in the first season.

The juicier tease, however, comes from what Park says about new material in the movie not seen in the manga, “There may also be some brand new, unique depictions in the movie so that even those who have already read the original manga can enjoy watching to their heart’s content.” Park played coy about what this new material could potentially be, so fans will definitely want to tune into the movie for not only what it reveals about the past, but what it could do to further flesh out the anime for the future.
