JJK 0 Movie Plot:

Yuta Okkotsu adored her childhood friend Rika Orimoto until she died in a car accident. Soon transforming into a cursed spirit, Rika haunts Yuta Okkotsu.

Not being able to control Rika from hurting others, Yuta wants to be killed after being apprehended by the Jujutsu Sorcerers.

But, Satoru Gojo assures Yuta that he can help others with the power if he learns to control it and thus enrolls into Jujutsu High School where he meets Maki Zenin, Toge Inumaki, and Panda.

Conclusion:

With MAPPA animating the upcoming JJK 0 Movie, the quality should be consistent and praise-worthy as already seen in the anime.

Though the staff behind the Jujutsu Kaisen Movie has not been announced, the core team of the anime should reprise their roles, as MAPPA wouldn’t want to hamper the flow and quality consistency of the franchise, keeping in mind that Jujutsu Kaisen is at the peak of the current Shonen universe.
