After a long wait, the fifth season of My Hero Academia has begun. The first episode of the fifth season for My Hero Academia anime revealed a teaser video for the third anime film in the franchise.
The film’s title is My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes’ Mission, and it will open in Japan on August 6.
NEW MOVIE TEASER
In honor of the show’s fifth anniversary, it was announced last year that a movie was being developed with creator Kohei Horikoshi’s assistance. Now, the show’s fifth season has updated fans on the movie, and it went so far as to drop a whole trailer for My Hero Academia: World Heroes Mission.
It will be interesting to see the route this movie follows and whether the film will feature an original story. Original manga creator, Kōhei Horikoshi, will again serve as chief supervisor and original character designer. My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission has been confirmed for a release in Japan this August.
The teaser shows Deku, Bakugō, and Todoroki in new “stealth suit” WHA costumes. The video teases that in the film’s story, Deku will be wanted by authorities for mass murder. Additionally, the film will feature an impactful, global incident. The narrator states, “the time limit until the world destruction crisis is two hours.”
It seems the “WHA” on Midoriya, Bakugo, and Todoroki’s suits refers to a worldwide hero organization that they become a part of with this newest threat that involves the entire world this time around.
Kenji Nagasaki is returning from the television series and two previous films in the franchise to direct the new film at BONES. Other returning staff members include scriptwriter Yousuke Kuroda, character designer Yoshihiko Umakoshi, and composer Yuki Hayashi.
