Demon Slayer The Movie: Mugen Train is easily one of the biggest movies of the past year as, even with its release being in the middle of a pandemic, it became the highest grossing film in Japan. The film was then released in the US where it became quite a box office hit (taking the pandemic into consideration that is).
Recently though, some Demon Slayer fans were able to watch the film in full from the comfort of their own home as the Demon Slayer movie was accidentally released on the PlayStation Store, complete with both an English and sub option (with Japanese audio). While the Demon Slayer movie was taken down from the PlayStation store soon after, it wasn’t removed fast enough as lots of fans were already able to download the film and save it to their PS4 and/or external drives.

In case you’re unfamiliar, the Demon Slayer movie is a follow-up to the first season of the Demon Slayer anime, and is an adaptation of the manga’s Mugen Train arc. The film’s premise is described as:
“Tanjiro and the group have completed their rehabilitation training at the Butterfly Mansion, and they arrive to their next mission on the Mugen Train, where over 40 people have disappeared in a very short period of time.
Tanjiro and Nezuko, along with Zenitsu and Inosuke, join one of the most powerful swordsmen within the Demon Slayer Corps, Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku, to face the demon aboard the Mugen Train on track to despair.”
Want to watch the Demon Slayer movie at home? The film will officially release digitally on June 22, 2021.
