The popular Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is getting a physical release. Studio MAPPA announced that the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Blu-ray and DVD release date will fall on September 21, 2022. Both versions of the movie will include English subtitles as a standard. A Special Edition box set will also include bonus content such as an audio commentary track, booklets, a voiced comic, and live footage of the movie’s first viewing. The standard Blu-ray version will cost ¥5,280 (about $40) and the DVD version will cost ¥4,180 (about $32).
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is a movie based on the first Jujutsu Kaisen manga serialized in 2017. Creator Gege Akutami later renamed the manga to Jujutsu Kaisen 0 after the official launch of the Jujutsu Kaisen series. The events of both the manga and movie predate the events of the main story, making it a prequel. The movie debuted in Japanese theatres in 2021 and garnered significant attention. Within 11 days of release, it became the second-fastest grossing movie in Japan behind Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has since grossed over 10 billion yen in Japan.
