Undeniably, Jujutsu Kaisen acquired a massive global fan base through its anime series. Hence, fans have been wondering where to watch the latest Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie. Since the movie has crossed the 1 billion Yen mark in its first week, the craze for it has only risen.
Also, the movie has increased the manga sales by ten times. Thus, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is one of the most anticipated movies for a global launch. However, the production house hasn’t given any certain details about the global release.
Where To Watch Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie?
Currently, there are no streaming platforms that have the rights to stream the movie. Since the movie is a massive hit, MAPPA has decided to only air it in theatres. Actually, the studio doesn’t want to divert the income. Launching the movie on streaming platforms would only cut off the profits.
Consequently, there are no streaming platforms that have the right to stream Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie officially. However, platforms like Funimation, Netflix, and Crunchyroll would certainly try their best to acquire the film. Lastly, a question arises which of these platforms will likely distribute the movie globally.

Netflix, Funimation, And Crunchyroll On A Run For Jujutsu Kaisen 0
Since the movie has been a blockbuster in Japan, breaking multiple records, OTT platforms want to lay their hand on it asap. On the contrary, the movie may not launch on platforms for a whole year. Hence, it’s likely to expect the movie to make its way in early 2023 or late 2022.
Nevertheless, Funimation and Crunchyroll have the streaming rights for JJK Season 1. On the one hand, Funimation and Crunchyroll do an awesome job while distributing anime globally. Since the platforms display anime-only, it’s most likely they’ll be the first ones to premiere Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
On the other hand, Netflix has been showing great interest in the anime genre. Indubitably, anime is a profitable medium. Hence, Netflix will surely try to achieve streaming rights. Although Crunchyroll and Funimation have the rights for JJK Season 1, the streaming rights go towards the ones that have bid more.
What is Jujutsu Kaisen 0 All About?
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is a prequel series of Jujutsu Kaisen which mainly focuses on Yuuta Okkotsu. Yuuta is an ordinary human who’s constantly haunted by the ghost of his ex-lover/childhood friend. However, the ghost has an entirely different nature from that of his friend.
Hence, Gojou Satoru consults Yuuta and enrolls him into the Tokyo Jujutsu High after exorcising the ghost. Yuuta enrolls as a first-year student with Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki, and Panda. Thus, a prequel storyline to Jujutsu Kaisen commences.
The Cast Members of JJK 0 Movie
Megumi Ogata will play the role of Yuta Okkotsu. Since Megumi is highly skilled at playing roles with a serious voice, she’d perfectly fit the role. Moreover, Yuichi Nakamura will return to play Gojou Satoru’s voice. Undoubtedly, he had done an amazing job at playing Gojo’s role in the anime.
