The manga and anime hit, My Hero Academia is getting its first movie and it is coming to the USA (okay and Canada) for a limited theatrical run. The anime, which focuses on Izuku Midoriya/Deku and his fellow superheroes-in-training, recently hit Toonami, is currently in its third season in Japan and in the USA on streaming services such as Crunchyroll and Funimation. The film, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes (Boku no Hero Academia The Movie: Futari no Hero in Japan), takes place after the final exams arc, at the end of season 2.
Here's a synopsis of the film:
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 actually already was shown in the US at AnimeExpo, which of course was a limited audience. The announcement of when the film will show theatrically was made in an interview during San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). A My Hero Academia panel will also be held at SDCC Saturday July 21, 11:15am PST.
