Funimation has released the first English dubbed trailer for My Hero Academia: World Heroes Mission, and has revealed the first details about a special bonus for fans who see the movie during its opening weekend.
As was previously announced, Funimation will bring the third and latest My Hero Academia movie, World Heroes' Mission, to theaters in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland on Oct. 29. The movie will also premiere in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa on Oct 28, with a release throughout Latin America to come at a later date. A limited supply of a 76-page booklet featuring behind the scenes material, a Q&A section with series creator Kohei Horikoshi, and a special manga chapter will be given out to fans who watch the movie during its opening weekend. A similar booklet was given out when the movie premiered in Japan over the summer and set new box-office records for the franchise.
World Heroes' Mission is set during the events of the fifth season of the anime and sees Izuku "Deku" Midoriya, the series' main protagonist and inheritor to the incredibly powerful One for All Quirk, taking the blame for a violent and deadly massacre. Now on the run from the law with two of his UA High classmates, the fiery Bakugo and the taciturn Todoroki, Deku seeks the aid of pro-heroes from around the world to help him clear his name and unravel the mysteries surrounding Humanity, a dangerous cult that wants to stop humanity's use of the super-power granting Quirks. The movie features appearances from many of the heroes from the series, as well as a new cast of international heroes. The film also introduces new, stealthier black costumes for Deku, Bakugo and Todoroki.
In addition to releasing the new movie, Funimation will also host a panel for the franchise at the upcoming New York Comic-Con.
The latest season of My Hero Academia recently concluded and is available on both Funimation and Crunchyroll. A sixth season has already been confirmed by the show's producers. Previous seasons of the series can also be streamed from those services, as well as Hulu and Netflix. The original My Hero Academia manga by Kohei Horikoshi is localized and distributed by VIZ Media outside of Japan.
