Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is headed to the big screen. Last month, a theatrical adaptation of the manga’s Infinite Train Arc (Mugen Ressha-Hen) was announced.
Now we’ve got word the film is set for 2020 — and we’ve got a new trailer.
That trailer has racked up in impressive 2.6 million views on Twitter as of this writing.
The film will be created by the same cast and crew as the series, including director Haruo Sotozaki. And like the series, it’ll be animated at Ufotable.

Here’s how Aniplex of America describes the series, which aired from April to September and is now on Toonami:
It is the Taisho Period in Japan. Tanjiro, a kindhearted boy who sells charcoal for a living, finds his family slaughtered by a demon. To make matters worse, his younger sister Nezuko, the sole survivor, has been transformed into a demon herself.
Though devastated by this grim reality, Tanjiro resolves to become a “demon slayer” so that he can turn his sister back into a human, and kill the demon that massacred his family.
