Considering the film is a continuation of the series and will require prior knowledge to enjoy, I highly doubt it'll get a nomination, but I don't see anything wrong with using this as a marketing strategy to get more eyes on anime content.

It's a film that gives you nothing,unless you watched the series. No chance at it even getting a nod.

I know that even if KnY gets nominated Soul will probably win anyway (it's a great movie), but it would be funny to hear someone from Hollywood say "the nominees for Best Animated Feature are [...] Demon Slayer - Kimetsu no Yaiba - The Movie: Mugen Train".

That's great. Let me just round up the family and make the 2000 mile trip down to Miami see the movie and get some nice covid on the side. worst distribution company of all time and they should be ashamed that they're keeping the fans of this movie in limbo I don't know what they're waiting for but they need to stop trolling us and let us watch the movie already in the comfort and safety of our own homes.

If they're trying to break into mainstream consciousness with this film, why the half-translated word-salad title? What's wrong with "Demon Slayer the Movie: Endless Train" or something like that? After all, the runner-up in all-time totals compared in the article wasn't marketed here as "Spirited Away ~ Kamikakushi of Sen and Chihiro: The Movie: Hidden by the Gods."
