After Tanjiro Kamado conquered the big screen in Japan, he is about to do the same in the United States. Demon Slayer: Mugen Tran just dropped its English dubbed movie trailer, hinting at its international release.
It is a big question if Demon Slayer: Mugen Train will also dominate the U.S. theaters after what it did in the Land of the Rising Sun. However, as the threat of the COVID-19 still looms, will it still make it?
Aniplex USA gave everyone a glimpse of the film's English dubbed trailer. According to Epic Dope, both of the dubbed and subbed versions of the movie will be out in North America in early 2021.
The teaser itself is similar to its Japanese version. So, international fans will basically see the same.
Demon Slayer: Mugen Train has perfectly captured fans' attention with its captivating sound effects, not to mention a great storyline. It can effortless make them feel they are in Japan themselves, also thanks to its voice actors.

However, the upcoming North American release seems to be quite impossible, especially with the worsening case of coronavirus in the country. Comicbook noted the global health crisis is still badly affecting a lot of theaters' operations.
So, it remains to be seen how Demon Slayer: Mugen Train will play when it arrives in the first quarter of 2021. There are also rumors it will drop in February, although that, too, is yet to be confirmed. Also, fans have to wait and see if it will have a home video release.
