The second My Hero Academia movie, announced in March, had its title and Japanese release date revealed at the Hero FES event. My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising opens in Japan on December 20. The series’ first feature film, Two Heroes landed in Japan on August 8 of last year and hit the states in October for a small theatrical release.
My Hero Academia is a manga and anime with huge audiences across the east and west. Creator Kohei Horikoshi imagines a world where nearly the entire population has a superpower called a quirk and being a hero is a profession. Just like the series’ first movie, Horikoshi is supervising on Heroes Rising and contributing original character designs. He’s joined by director Kenji Nagasaki, writer Yosuke Kuroda and master of hype composer Yuuki Hayashi. Horikoshi adds that My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising will use content originally planned for the Two Heroes’ finale.
