Yesterday, it was revealed that a third film, titled My Hero Academia: The Movie: World Heroes’ Mission, will appear in Japanese theatres on August 6th, 2021 according to a post from the official Twitter account.
Also shared was a brief 30-second trailer on Toho Animation’s official YouTube channel, offering a scant glimpse into a world in crisis, with the young heroes of U.A. High School donning updated outfits to protect humanity.
Under the supervision of My Hero Academia‘s creator Kohei Horikoshi, the film is being directed by Kenji Nagasaki, with the screenplay written by Yosuke Kuroda, character design by Yoshihiko Umakoshi, music composition by Yuki Hayashi and produced by the animation studio Bones.
The vocal cast retains the same actors as in the animated series.
- Daiki Yamashita as Izuku Midoriya
- Nobuhiko Okamoto as Katsuki Bakugo
- Yuki Kaji as Shoto Todoroki
- Tetsu Inada as Endeavor
- Yuichi Nakamura as Hawks
The then unnamed movie was first announced last year through three images (shown above) separated across multiple social media channels, which, when combined, spelled out the phrase: He will meet “the three Musketeers.”
The last film, My Hero Academia: The Movie: Heroes Rising, was released December 20th, 2019 in Japan, and subsequently shown throughout Canada and the United States the following February and March.
