What Will Happen in Demon Slayer’s 2024 Movie?

Picking up where the series left off, the 2024 Demon Slayer film will begin with Episode 11 from the Swordsmith Village Arc, focusing on the intense showdown between Tanjiro and Upper Four, Hantengu, and Nezuko's successful battle against sunlight. 

It will then dive into Episode 1 of the Hashira Training Arc, depicting the Hashira's training initiation for the upcoming final confrontation with the antagonist, Muzan Kibutsuji.

One of the aspects of Demon Slayer that makes it such a popular anime is its animation style by the Japanese studio Ufotable. Especially when extending that onto the big screen (including IMAX), it's a visual treat for fans. 

Anticipation for the Hashira Training Arc is high, as fans expect it to maintain and potentially exceed the visual standards set by previous installments. 

Although the exact unfolding of the season remains uncertain, viewers can take comfort in that it will be a visually stunning experience, continuing Ufotable's legacy.

The official trailer teases what audiences can expect in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – To the Hashira Training, releasing in theaters on Thursday, February 22.
