Today seems like a great day to be a My Hero Academia fan. Following the premiere of the anime’s fifth season of the highly-acclaimed anime series, a brand new teaser trailer for the third My Hero Academia film has been released during AnimeJapan 2021. It only lasts for about 30 seconds, but it has quite a punch to pack. You can check it out here:
The wording in the trailer translates to “A crisis leading to the destruction of the world. The time limit is two hours.” Our main character, Izuku Midoriya, is wanted by the authorities in this film, as he was accused of mass murder. He will get joined by his classmates, Katsuki Bakugo and Shoto Todoroki, who are all sporting brand new stealth costumes. We get our first good look at them when they jump out of a plane and into the city below. Going by trailer, we can also expect to see the pro heroes, Endeavor and Hawks. Their fellow 1A classmate, Fumikage Tokoyami, and various new heroes from around the world are joining. We also get our first glimpse at the villain, who asks whether “Quirks are a blessing given upon mankind or a power that will lead us to the destruction of the world.” The feature film will present an original story separate from the events of the manga and anime.
My Hero Academia creator Kōhei Horikoshi will serve as chief supervisor and original character designer for the film. The director of the anime series and the previous two films, Kenji Nagasaki, is also returning. The film will release in Japan on August 6th, 2021.
