My Hero Academia will finally be getting its first film, My Hero Academia then Movie: Two Heroes, this August. But before that, the staff have now launched a new teaser trailer to further hype the fans up. This new teaser also promotes the theme song, “Long Hope Philia” by Masaki Suda.
The teaser trailer also reveals the new My Hero Academia the Movie bonus manga. Participating theaters around Japan will be handing out these bonus “volume 0” (volume Origin) manga chapters to those who watch the movie. Aside from the new bonus chapter, it will also include a character analysis of the movie’s characters, as well as a “secret conversation” between creator Kouhei Horikoshi and One Piece mangaka Eiichiro Oda.
The film itself will premiere in Japan on 3rd August, but Funumation and Toho will be holding a World Premiere as well. This will happen during the Anime Expo 2018 event in Los Angeles, California on July 5, 2018, local time.
For the new characters, the blonde girl with glasses is Melissa, a quirkless girl who Deku meets in I Island. Meanwhile, the one beside All Might is Melissa’s father, Devitt, who has ties with All Might in his youth. Devitt makes support items for heroes, and Melissa is trying to follow his footsteps.
The movie’s story will be taking place after the Final Exam Arc, around the same time during the Forest Training Arc.” They also revealed that it will take the UA students in an overseas trip on a man-made floating city called “I Island.”
They previously revealed that it will have an original story not found in Kouhei Horikoshi’s original manga. In fact, the mangaka himself is writing the story. BONES will once again be animating the project, with Kenji Nagasaki directing it.
