Demon Slayer: Mugen Train

Haruo Sotozaki

Considering the huge success of both the anime and manga, it is not surprising that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba has made the leap onto the big screen. A direct sequel to season one and an important action-filled bridge to the events ahead in season two, Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train has gone on to become the most successful animated movie to ever be released in Japan, surpassing Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away. 

“…the most successful animated movie to ever be released in Japan”

The film depicts an important step in the development of its four young protagonists — orphan Tanjiro; his demon sister Nezuko, whom he carries in a wooden box on his back; girl-crazy Zenitsu; and Inosuke with his bare chest and boar’s head mask (all voiced by the original cast).  This overconfident quartet spent most of the show nearly getting themselves killed as they tried to fend off low-level foes. Now, they face not one but two of the world’s most powerful demons, known as Kizuki, whose existence had long been rumored, though they did not reveal themselves until the final episodes of season 1 (and even then, audiences never saw the six Upper Rank demons that are deadliest to humankind). Tanjiro and friends board the titular Mugen Train: a cross-country transport whose 200 passengers become easy targets for the Kizuki who have commandeered the locomotive.  

If all this sounds confusing, rest assured that there’s plenty of oddball enjoyment to be had even when the plot gets twisty! Essential viewing for followers of the series.

When you’re booking your cinema ticket you’ll notice the cinema has been divided into ‘bubbles’ in order to maintain social distancing. You won’t be able to book part of a bubble, but you can book more than one: for instance a group of four can book two bubbles of two. Each bubble may only be occupied by a single household: if you're visiting with people from another household they should book a separate bubble. 

If you can’t find a combination of seats that suits your group please get in touch and we’ll try to help, although capacity is very limited in all screenings.
