If I remember this correctly, it is this way round: For having the animated movie more material was needed than the original one shot. This means the manga limited series has to come out first and the movie will come afterwards.

If the movie needs more time, it should not make a difference when it comes to the manga series.

That's what I think too, but in case they want to use the manga as promotion for the animation, they could theoretically postpone it if the film gets postponed as well.

There's another thing to think about. WSJ has "lost" its flagships with Haikyuu!! being concluded after The Promised Neverland and Kimetsu no Yaiba (and perhaps some other series I'm forgetting at the moment) finished as well.

One Piece is the only remaining series from the 20th century and the 2nd oldest series (if we don't count Hunter x Hunter which is still on hiatus) is Boku no Hero Academia from 2014.

The author of Beelzebub (Ryuhei Tamura?) came back with a new series, but WSJ would definitely benefit from having another renowned veteran in the magazine to support the younger authors. We know that Burn the Witch will be a limited series, but that may be the best approach - having some recognizable names for a limited time may also bring attention the new titles.

We'll see, Jump is on a turning point, but I'm going off-topic.
