Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie is getting a theatrical premiere in West- North America and Canada on March 18th, 2022.
It will be almost 3 months after it got a blockbuster opening in Japan. Dates for the rest of the world will be announced in the coming days. But what date is the anime movie streaming? Which platform is the favorite to will land up with international streaming rights?
Which streaming platform will have Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie digital rights?
None of the major OTT platforms has confirmed the streaming rights they have secured. However, we do have sufficient hints. Crunchyroll appears to be the favorite to acquire the digital streaming rights for Jujutsu Kaisen 0. Crunchyroll in partnership with Funimation is most likely to stream the movie once it leaves theatres.
There are a couple of reasons behind the assumption. Crunchyroll is currently streaming Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 simulcast globally. Apart from that Crunchyroll joined hands with Funimation to bring Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie to over 1500 theatres to select countries. The press release read as
“Crunchyroll to Bring JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 Movie to Theaters on March 18.”
The list includes the United States and Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, France with CRG events, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, French-speaking Africa and Latin America. Gege Akutami’s prequel manga adaptation of ‘Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School’ will premiere in both the original Japanese with English subtitles and dubbed in English as well.
Keeping the equations in mind, there is a high possibility of the Crunchyroll and Funimation duo acquiring the streaming rights of the JJK0 movie. Though Funimation had added Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 to its catalog in October 2021. However, the platform has yet not done either a domestic or international stream yet.
Is Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie coming on Netflix?
Netflix has not announced any plans to acquire digital streaming rights of the movie. But a future possibility cannot be ruled out.
To add to the speculation, neither the production team at MAPPA nor Toho distributors have announced about the streaming platform and a release date when Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will stream in Japan and globally.
It is very unlikely as of now that Jujutsu Kaisen 0 may get a digital debut on platforms such as Amazon Prime or Disney Plus outside Japan and other Asian territories.
When will Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie release on a digital platform?
In the past, we have seen that the waiting period between an international theatrical release of a super hit anime movie and an OTT streaming release takes about 2-4 months.
For instance, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train took 2 months after its theatrical premiere to drop on streaming platforms. On teh other hand, My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission is still waiting for an OTT drop despite getting a theatrical release in the United States in late October 2021.
Assuming that the wait period between the global theatrical debut and the online streaming premiere is 2-4 months, one can safely assume Jujutsu Kaisen 0 The Movie release window to fall between May 18th and July 18th, 2022.
