Manga Entertainment has posted a Tweet including the comment "It's coming..." and an English-dubbed trailer for the film Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train. The trailer itself includes a comment, "Coming Soon Subbed and Dubbed."
The film is the blockbusting cinema sequel to the Demon Hunter anime series, and is the highest-earning anime film in Japan ever. It ranked #1 in Japan for 12 consecutive weekends at the box office, in terms of number of tickets sold. As of December 27, it had sold over 24 million tickets to earn about US$314 million. The film has surpassed Hayao Miyazaki's 2002 Spirited Away, its last rival for all-time highest earnings in Japanese box office history. In Japan, it began holding immersive MX4D and 4DX screenings on December 26.
The main staff members of the previous television anime returned for the sequel film. TOHO and Aniplex are handling the film's distribution in Japan. Funimation and Aniplex of America will screen the film in cinemas in North America in early 2021.
