Get ready anime fans, the hit anime series My Hero Academia will premiere the movie version, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, at Anime Expo 2018 in July before opening in theaters this fall. The film will have subtitles and appears to be a follow up to the initial series.
My Hero Academia follows the story of a world in which 70% of people have superpowers and it thus becomes odd for someone not to develop them. For protagonist Izuku “Deku” Midoriya, who is among that 30%, childhood was rough for the unlikely hero who, against all odds, still ends up going to the most prestigious superhero academy around. Spoilers for season 1 and 2 of the show will follow below.
During the first two seasons Midoriya meets the #1 superhero around, whose power turns out to be passing on his many superpowers to others. The hero witnesses Midoriya standing up to a villain despite being powerless and decides he is worthy of the power and ends up passing it on to him. Midoriya’s abilities draw on energy which allows him to be faster, stronger and generally more powerful. This means that he will eventually become the #1 superhero himself.
This movie will follow Midoriya’s developing powers as well as his trip to a prestigious mobile city where experts study science. He also encounters a girl who doesn’t have powers there, reminding him of the struggles of his own powerless past. Adventure ensues when villains take the population of the island captive.
The world premiere of My Hero Academia: Two Heroes will be shown on July 5 at Anime Expo 2018 before heading to theaters this fall.
