Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train premiered back in October 2020. Shortly after the movie’s release, fans wanted to know more about Demon Slayer Movie 2. Well, shortly after the series hit the big screen, it became one of the most popular films in Japan. In fact, Demon Slayer returned with the second season shortly after a year. However, fans want to know if Demon Slayer Movie 2 is still in the pipeline? Let’s see!
Based on the shonen manga series by Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, the film follows the fight of Tanjiro Kamado, his sister Nezuko, Inosuke Hashibira and Zenitsu Agatsuma. They all board the Mugen train to help Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku find the demon responsible for the disappearance of forty people. But shortly after boarding, everyone falls into a deep sleep. So Enmu ordered the people on the train to destroy their spiritual core and he would grant them a peaceful sleep.
Demon Slayer Movie 2: Renewal
So far, Ufotable, the animation company behind the film, hasn’t revealed if Demon Slayer will return with the second film. Shortly after the first film aired, the animation studio returned with the second season, an extended version of the film. There is a possibility that the anime series will continue to tell the story through shows. So there’s little to no hope that Demon Slayer Movie 2 will return, at least not for now.
But no need to worry. We can expect that the anime will return with the second film soon. This is because the second season has already concluded and the animation studio has not yet revealed whether Tanjiro and the company will return with the third season or a sequel film. Considering it’s the first film after the first season, we can assume that Ufotable could return with Demon Slayer Movie 2.
Has production started?
Ufotable has commented on the production status of Demon Slayer Movie 2. So there’s no idea when they’ll be back to work on the sequel. But the return will not take long. Because the production of the animation takes ten to twelve months. So we can assume that it could take a year to announce the production details of the second film.
Is there any source material?
Luckily, yes, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is based on a manga series by Koyoharu Gotouge. The anime was published in Shueisha’s manga magazine Shonen from February 2016 to May 2020. He only has twenty-three tankobon volumes. Currently, only a fragment of the tape had been narrated on the show, as well as a film. So there is still a lot of content to discover.
Demon Slayer Movie 2: What will happen next?
The upcoming movie could be about Swordsmith Village Arc. It will cover 100-127 chapters of manga series. Tanjiro will go to Swordsmith Village to find a new weapon in the upcoming episode. The place is the home of this weapon. But things won’t be that easy. There will be demons who could guard the sword.
Meanwhile, the season 2 finale revealed that Tengen is alive but in pain. He told Iguro that Tanjiro would be Hashira’s replacement. From there they will embark on a new journey.
Demon Slayer Movie 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, the animation studio behind Demon Slayer has yet to revamp the anime for the next movie or season. So it’s pretty difficult to guess when the movie might return. But since there’s only a one-year gap between the film and the show, we can expect Demon Slayer Movie 2 to air in October 2023. Stay tuned. The Anime Daily keeps you updated.
