Demon Slayer Anime Infinity Castle Movie Trilogy

Demon Slayer Anime to End With Infinity Castle Movie Trilogy

The popular Demon Slayer anime will end with a movie trilogy instead of a traditional season adapting the manga’s final arc, Infinity Castle. Crunchyroll is teaming up with Sony Pictures Entertainment to distribute the movies worldwide, though not many details were shared about the trilogy other than a short teaser trailer basically confirming that the show is coming to an end.

The movies were announced shortly after the conclusion of the anime’s Hashira Training arc this past weekend. Unfortunately, the announcement wasn’t accompanied by a release date but a teaser trailer was released confirming that the final arc from the manga, Infinity Castle, will be adapted across a movie trilogy instead of traditional seasons. Demon Slayer is no stranger to this – in fact, it received three movies in the past that adapted entire arcs before they aired in episodic format.

Crunchyroll company president Rahul Purini released a statement:

“Demon Slayer has been a phenomenal franchise and we at Crunchyroll are delighted to have been a part of it from the beginning. Crunchyroll is thrilled to be able to bring this trilogy of films to fans, on the big screen, and it promises to be one of the truly epic and consequential pop cultural events of our time when it hits theatres.”

We’ll have to wait and see if this worldwide distribution plan includes South African cinemas. While we did receive previous Demon Slayer movies in cinemas including the Mugen Train arc, Sony Pictures Entertainment has yet to confirm if South Africa is on the list (or any other country, for that matter) regarding the release of the Infinity Castle movie trilogy.

The Infinity Castle arc in the manga is generally considered to the best chapter of the entire series as it wraps up the story of Demon Slayer and provides arguably some of the best fights yet. Watch the teaser trailer below:
