A teaser was released for the animated feature film adaptation of “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba,” showing actual footage from the movie.

Subtitled “Mugen Train” Arc (Infinity Train arc), it will hit cinemas in 2020.

The film is based on a manga of the same name by Koyoharu Gotoge. It currently runs in the Weekly Shonen Jump comic anthology and boasts more than 14 million copies in print.

The story begins when Tanjiro has his family killed by a demon, and his younger sister is transformed into a demon herself. Tanjiro becomes a demon slayer to bring her back to human form.

The film project was announced after the final episode of the animated TV series aired in late September.

At a special event held in Tokyo on Oct. 20, it was revealed that the film will be released next year.
