A brand new My Hero Academia movie is on the way, according to ComicBook.com. The fourth film will reportedly feature an original story supervised by series creator Kohei Horikoshi. Although a release date hasn’t been announced, a teaser trailer was shared on over social media and is now available on YouTube.
The recently announced fourth My Hero Academia movie will show more of the fallout from the Paranormal Liberation Front War.
Publishing company Shueisha also confirmed the new My Hero Academia movie in its 2023 double issue of Weekly Shonen Jump. The film is set during the anime’s sixth season. The latest season, consisting of 25 episodes, debuted last November and ran through March 2023.
The upcoming My Hero Academia movie will delve into the hero society’s collapse, highlighted in the sixth season’s final episodes. This downfall aligns with the beginning of Kohei Horikoshi’s manga’s Final Act, the prologue of which is expected to start with Season 7. This deterioration was largely due to the actions of Tomura Shigaraki and All For One during the Paranormal Liberation Front War.
The universe of My Hero Academia has become a global sensation since its inception. From its roots as a manga in Weekly Shonen Jump to the anime adaptation fans have grown to love, the journey of young Izuku Midoriya in a world filled with quirks and superheroes has captured the hearts of countless fans. The series’ widespread popularity has resulted in three successful films, which is why it comes as no surprise that a fourth My Hero Academia movie is in the works.
The wait for My Hero Academia Season 7 is a little easier to handle with the announcement of a fourth movie.
Released in 2018, Two Heroes, the first My Hero Academia movie, takes fans to a time shortly after the U.A. High School’s final exams. All Might and Izuku Midoriya, the series’ central figures, receive an invitation to I-Expo, a prestigious exhibition showcasing quirk abilities and hero item innovations. However, things take a turn for the worse when villains invade the event, leading to a thrilling mission to save the day.
The second My Hero Academia movie, titled Heroes Rising, was released in 2019. It takes the series’ young heroes to a remote island where they are tasked with protecting the residents as part of their hero work studies. However, the peace is short-lived as they confront a new adversary – Nine, a villain with ties to the league and possessing multiple quirks.
Arriving in 2021, My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission is deemed the most ambitious installment among the three films. A cult called Humarize believes that quirks are a disease, aiming to eradicate them from humanity. The film’s plot is a race against time, with our heroes having only two hours to stop a catastrophic event.
The three previous My Hero Academia movies have been global hits, exploring different parts of the world beyond the boundaries of the anime.
The third My Hero Academia movie goes beyond Japan, showcasing the broader universe and introduces heroes from different countries. It offers a fresh perspective on the impact of quirks globally, exploring both their beauty and the fears they generate. With breathtaking animation, edge-of-the-seat sequences, and deeper philosophical questions about the nature of quirks, this film elevates the series to new cinematic heights.
Details about the fourth My Hero Academia movie are currently limited, but more insights are expected soon. The recent teaser trailer mainly recapped past films yet effectively ignited excitement among fans. Here’s to hoping the upcoming film adds another memorable chapter to the already illustrious legacy of My Hero Academia.
