My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising Tickets Now On Sale (US, Canada, UK)

The movie will release in western territories in both English sub and English dub.


Funimation has announced that advanced tickets for the western release of My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising are now available for purchase. Heroes Rising will debut outside Japan in the US, Canada, and UK on February 26. Like the first My Hero Academia movie (Two Heroes), Heroes Rising will release in theaters in both the original Japanese with English subtitles and English dub.

Heroes Rising will see Class 1-A travel to Nabu Island to train by doing real hero work. However, the island is then attacked by the villain Nine and his cohorts. Nine's Quirk allows him to steal the Quirks of others and he now possesses nine abilities. While the members of their class defend different parts of the island, Midoriya and Bakugo team up to stop Nine--combining their philosophies to both save and defeat everyone.

Based on the costume designs of Class 1-A, Heroes Rising likely takes place after the events of Season 4. Midoriya is wearing his Air Force Gloves, for example, which he acquires in the U.A. School Festival Arc--the latter half of Season 4.
