My Hero Academia Getting New Movie In 2021


Every once in a while there is a show that just transcends everything you would expect from a series and captures the imaginations of a fanbase in such a way that it’s hard to ignore. When it comes to My Hero Academia, that’s exactly what happened. The anime about a world full of superheroes and supervillains (a rarity in the anime world believe it or not) has wowed the world with its characters, its depth, its surprises and more. Its success has paved the way for certain things including anime movies of the franchise…of which…a third is coming.

This came right from the creator of My Hero Academia, Kohei Horikoshi, who has been teasing something big for the anime/manga story for a while now with special character posters. When put together they make up the tweet you see below, and Horikoshi acknowledges that a third movie is indeed coming next Summer.

The irony of this is honestly deeper than you might expect. Because after the previous movie “Two Heroes” the creator noted that there wasn’t likely to be a third film. And yet, the fans love for the franchise is so great that now it’s happening, and he’s VERY excited about it.

Now, obviously, there are going to be questions about what the movie is about, and the poster does share some clues. Including how it features Deku, Bakugo and Todoroki and calls them “The Three Musketeers”, which is a name they don’t have in the show as of yet. Then, there’s the reference to a “he”, stating that someone is going to encounter these three, but who? We don’t know yet.

The Summer 2021 timeslot though is something we can easily decipher because Season 5 of Academia is coming in the Spring of 2021. So it makes sense that the movie would follow that and be a capper of sorts to the hype that will be building up.

More details are sure to arrive in the coming months, so stay tuned!
