Jujutsu Kaisen 0 New Unseen Content

In the latest interview translated by Twitter user @soukatsu_, Director Sunghoo Park teased that even fans who have read author Gege Akutami’s original manga will discover new things in the upcoming prequel movie as the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie will feature completely new content.

“There may also be some brand new depictions in the movie so that even those who have read the original manga can enjoy themselves to their heart’s content,” Director Park said. “I can’t give any spoilers, so I encourage everyone to enjoy the movie in cinemas with what we’ve shared with you so far,” Director Park added.

In the interview, Director 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 first season of JJK anime and even for the manga as well (not even in the Gojo Past arc specific to the two comings shortly after the Death Painting Arc). But the manga had the benefit of the prequel series setting the stage for Gojo and Geto in the JJK main series. This shows that the movie might fill in some all-necessary holes about Gojo and Getro that were only indicated in the first season.
