A special visual was released for the theatrical edition, which will premiere on February 2 in Japan and February 23 in North America.
The anime began its 3rd season on April 9, and it ran for 11 episodes. Its first episode was an hour-long special, while the final one was also extended and ran for 70 minutes. In addition to the upcoming Hashira Training Arc, the anime still hasn’t covered the Final Battle Arc (Infinity Castle + Final Countdown arcs).
The Hashira Training Arc begins with volume 16 of the manga. VIZ describes the story for it:
Tanjiro goes to see the Stone Hashira, Himejima, who intends to prepare him for the battles to come. The training to become a Hashira—a high-ranking member of the Demon Slayer Corps—is intense and demanding, and earning Himejima’s approval seems impossible, but Tanjiro won’t give up! Meanwhile, the demon lord Muzan continues to search for the location of Nezuko and Ubuyashiki.
