The story of Demon Slayer has managed to find a big audience of anime lovers thanks in part to its tragic, yet compelling, story as well as some breathtaking animation to make for one heck of a ride. While not a lot of details have been released about the upcoming film, it's nice to know that the world of Demon Slayer is set to continue.

The Official Demon Slayer Twitter Account shared the first details from this upcoming theatrical release, sharing the first teaser and animated image which promises to to set up a tough new battle for the protagonists of the series to face off against:

Tanjiro's quest to save his sister Nezuko who was transformed into a demon herself has made for quite the entertaining journey, with a lot of the demons that they've encountered proving to be amazingly original. When his sister was transformed, Tanjiro lost his entire family and went down the path of attempting to join the Demon Slayer Corps, undergoing some serious training to become that which demons would fear across the Japanese countryside.
