The story of the movie is based on a one-shot manga series that comes before the movie. Before Jujutsu Kaisen was ever a thing, the manga came out. But as Jujutsu has become a huge hit in the anime and manga worlds over the years, the prequel has always been talked about as if it were canon.
And now Yuta has his own movie, and the most recent chapters of the manga are about him. It seems likely that both the prequel manga and the movie are canon to the main story.
Even if it wasn’t part of the canon, I’d still tell fans of the first season or the manga to watch this movie. It is a must-see for anyone who likes Jujutsu because it has great fight scenes and hints at the history of the art.
With a total of 13.61 billion yen, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is now the 15th highest-grossing movie in Japan. Also, with a global box office gross of US$185,824,427, it is the 7th highest-grossing anime film of all time, making it the 7th highest-grossing anime film of all time. The movie is still being shown in theaters all over the world.

The story of Yuta Okkotsu and Rika is told in the movie through a series of flashbacks. Yuta is another one of Gojou’s charges, just like Yuji Itadori, who he has taken under his care. But when we meet Yuji, we don’t know how good Okkotsu is until we hear about it in the first season.
The movie is set a year before what happens in the first season. When the new first-year students started at the Jujutsu Technical School. Okkotsu comes out of his shell and loves the people around him when he is in the same class as Panda, Maki, and Inumaki.
Also, seeing him do well in a world where curses and sorcerers are common. We see how characters like Maki, who we met in season 1 of the anime, started out.
