People Want To See Live-Action Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Stands 

We’ve already seen a trailer for the live-action Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure movie. We’ve seen the outfits. We know what they look like. But what people really want to see are the Stands.

What is a Stand? Here’s the Jojo Wikia:

The Stand (スタンド Sutando?) is a supernatural power unique to JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

A Stand is an entity psychically generated by its proprietor, generally referred to as a Stand User (スタンド使い Sutando Tsukai). It is viewed as a physical manifestation of the User’s fighting spirit. A Stand generally presents itself as a figure hovering near the user and possesses abilities beyond that of an ordinary human, which, depending on the Stand User, can be wielded for good or for evil.

They are a key part of Jojo lore. Yet, in the trailer, there aren’t any Stands.

See? No Stands!

What we do see is purple fog and screen text describing what kind of power it is. This has Jojo fans confused and concerned. 

JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable opens this August in Japan. No word yet on an international release. Or, you know, Stands.
