The Demon Slayer film titled Mugen Train continues to break all the records worldwide in Japan, but the real question here is that how can one watch the anime movie in the United States and also around the world? Well, we are here to tell you everything that is known as of now about the project including, where and how to watch it.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is undoubtedly one of the best and most popular anime series in the world right now. Hence, it is understandable that the fans are desperate for some new content.
Immediately following the finale of the first season in September 2019, an announcement was made by the writers of the series ‘Ufotable’ on Twitter that the next project would be a feature film.
The movie would be called ‘Mugen Train.’ It would be a direct continuation from the first season, with Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Inosuke, and Nezuko boarding the ‘Infinity Train’ after forty people were reported missing on the locomotive.
However, the fans really want to know how they will watch the Demon Slayer movie, including when it will release outside Japan and which sites will be streaming the film.
The ‘Demon Slayer: Mugen Train’ anime film released on Friday, October 16, in cinemas across Japan.
After a record-breaking opening weekend, the Demon Slayer Twitter account revealed that Mugen Train made more than ten billion yen ($95 million) in just ten days.

The success of the film is also partially down to its release in IMAX cinemas across Japan. According to reports, the particular IMAX version makes “use of the enhanced audio to give the viewers the experience of being inside that battle when Tanjiro uses his Water Breathing techniques.”
There is no information that the Demon Slayer film will be releasing on Funimation, Crunchyroll, or other streaming services at the time of writing.
However, fans expect the movie to be made available on streaming platforms at some point following the theatrical release.
The most viable platform to showcase the film first would be Funimation, with the North American release by Aniplex of America being produced in a partnership with the Funimation Films.
