The third season of
My Hero Academia is in full swing, and Bandai Namco’s video game adaptation launches in just three months. On top of that, we’re also getting a movie! My Hero Academia: Two Heroes is the first ever movie version of the popular manga and anime series, and it’s going to be hitting theaters in Japan and North America soon!
Voice actors Christopher R. Sabat (All Might) and Justin Briner (Midoriya) are currently at San Diego Comic-Con, and they dropped some big My Hero news. The duo officially revealed that My Hero Academia: Two Heroes is heading to theaters in September. The English dubbed version of the movie will have showings on September 25th, 27th, and 29th, while the Japanese version (with English subtitles) will have showings on September 26th and October 2nd. In total, 400 theaters across the US and Canada will be playing the movie.
The film’s official synopsis is as follows:
Our favorite young hero-in training is in for a wild ride when villains threaten the artificial moving city, I-Island. Deku and All Might receive an invitation to I-Expo, the world’s leading exhibition of Quirk abilities and hero item innovations!Amid the excitement, sponsors, and pros from all over, Deku meets Melissa, a girl who is Quirkless just like he once was. Suddenly, I-Expo’s top-of-the-line security system gets hacked by villains, and a sinister plan is set in motion. It’s a serious threat to hero society,and one man holds the key to it all—the symbol of peace, All Might.
My Hero Academia: Two Heroes had an early showing for 3,000 fans at Anime Expo earlier in the month, and Gen Fukunaga (CEO and President of Funimation) called the response to the sold-out world premiere “incredible.” You can check out the movie’s first trailer above.
