‘Demon Slayer’ is one of the most popular anime shows of 2019. What makes it such a great anime is its simple shounen story arcs that are incredibly animated and have the most epic fight scenes. And despite its brisk pacing, it still manages to flesh out a very strong dynamic between its main characters. Ufotable had officially announced a continuation of its story in the form of a movie and the studio has now also released its final release date.
Demon Slayer Movie Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Demon Slayer Movie: Infinity Train’, is scheduled to release on October 16, 2020.
Director of the first season, Haruo Sotozaki, is again helming the movie and Hikaru Kondo is returning as its producer. Just like the first season, Ufotable Studio will not only animate it but will also be responsible for its script. Yuki Kajiura and Go Shiina will be handling the show’s overall music composition.
To confirm its release date, a new trailer was also posted on the official twitter account of the anime. Check it out below:
