Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train Headed to Funimation Next Week After Breaking Box Office Records


After an astonishingly successful box office run during a sluggish time for movie theaters, Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train is about to head to streaming. Funimation has announced that the hit film will stream exclusively on its platform, starting on June 22 in the United States and Canada and on June 23 in Australia and New Zealand.

Funimation will make Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train available in both its English dub and its original Japanese dub with English subtitles.


The announcement comes at the tail-end of a spectacular North American theatrical run for the R-rated anime. The film has earned over $48 million in the United States and Canada since its debut on April 23. Along with having the highest grossing foreign language debut in U.S. box office history with $34.1 million, Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train has become the highest-grossing anime film of all time worldwide, topping $500 million. Spirited Away sits at a distant second with a $395.58 million gross. Additionally, Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train is also the highest-grossing film in Japanese box office history.

“Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train has been a runaway success since it opened last year, galvanizing fans and attracting a whole new generation to anime,” said Asa Suehira, Chief Content Officer for Funimation Global Group. “With the addition of the movie, fans can take a deep dive into the franchise watching the first season of the television series, three special television episodes and now the feature-length film from their homes or on the go.”


In our review of Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train, IGN gave the film a 7, saying that “jaw-dropping visuals alone make [the movie] well worth a watch, even if the film stumbles a bit at the climax.” For more about Demon Slayer, read about how the new movie sets the stage for Season 2 of the main series.
