The newest issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Jump Special Anime Festa 2020 will be streamed on the official Jump YouTube Channel from 1 PM to 4 PM on October 11.
The event will have a special preview of the upcoming Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train anime film, new footage for the upcoming second season of Dr STONE, a preview of the Jujutsu Kaisen TV anime, and an "original anime" for the Shonen Jump+ manga series Boukyaku Battery.

The Jump Special Anime Festa event is a yearly event that screens anime shorts and promotional videos based on manga featured in Weekly Shonen Jump, V Jump, or Jump SQ. magazines. These videos are usually screened across Japan, but this year, it will be available for the rest of the world online.
Jump Festa is one of the main conventions of the year for anime fans but like many major conventions this year around the world, Jump Festa will be going the virtual route due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
