In March 2018, Gege Akutami launched the manga series Jujutsu kaisen in the publication Weekly Shonen Jump. But this film is based on a manga one-shot which was released in Shueisha’s Jump Giga magazine in April 2017. The anime adaptation of the series was picked up by Studio Mappa and debuted in 2020. Mappa Studio also provided the animation for Movie 0. Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is scheduled to release in 2023.
Crunchyroll describes the anime series as follows:

Guided by the most powerful of wizards, Satoru Gojo, Itadori is admitted to Tokyo Jujutsu High School, an organization that fights curses…and thus begins the heroic story of a boy who became a curse to exorcise a curse, a life whose he can never go back
