Funimation announced on Wednesday that the 3rd MHA movie, My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, will arrive in theaters both subbed and dubbed this October.

It will screen in Latin America (in Spanish and Portuguese) soon, as well as Scandinavia by Funimation Global Group’s Wakanim in Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland, all with subtitles in English as well as in each country’s own languages (except Iceland). Funimation released an English-subbed trailer for the movie, both on YouTube and their Twitter:
Kenji Nagasaki directed the movie at BONES, just as with the TV anime and first two movies. The original creator Kohei Horikoshi also supervised the story and did the character design. The voice cast:
- Izuku Midoriya – Justin Briner (English), Daiki Yamashita (Japanese)
- Katsuki Bakugo – Clifford Chapin (English), Nobuhiko Okamoto (Japanese)
- Shoto Todoroki – David Matranga (English), Yuki Kaji (Japanese)
- Endeavor – Patrick Seitz (English), Tetsu Inada (Japanese)
- Flect Turn – Robbie Daymond (English), Kazuya Nakai (Japanese)
- Pino – Cristina Vee (English), Megumi Hayashibara (Japanese)
- Rody Soul – Ryan Colt Levy (English), Ryo Yoshizawa (Japanese)
The movie hit theaters across Japan on August 6, 2021. It was initially off to a decent start by taking second place in terms of viewers in that week’s ranking. It grossed over $1.4 million in the first 10 days of showing, and consequently became the highest-grossing movie in the My Hero Academia series.
The story is set in the Endeavor Agency arc while Deku, Bakugo and Todoroki are training with the Number 1 Hero. Besides Deku, the new character Rudy is also wanted nationwide for a crime they didn’t commit. To make everything harder, they only have 2 hours to stop Humarise’s (the new villain group) global plans of eliminating all Quirks! The movie is not yet rated and has an approximate running time of 104 minutes.
Funimation is currently streaming the 5th TV anime season, with the previous 4 also available on the platform. The first two My Hero Academia movies are My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising (2020) and My Hero Academia: Two Heroes (2018).
