Right now, fans of My Hero Academia are in a great place. Season 5 is rolling along (with subtitles at present, the dubbed version is coming in May) and it’s already doing some great things for the characters that haven’t been seen in quite a while. However, the year as a whole is going to be rather big for the franchise because not only is Season 5 rolling out with 25 episodes, fans are going to get a third movie in the form of My Hero Academia World Heroes Mission. A movie that is slated at present to come out during the summer.
Teases for My Hero Academia World Heroes Mission have been going on for some time. Including concept art and posters showcasing Deku, Bakugo and Shoto Todoroki’s new “hero outfits” that they got for being in this major mission. However, we can now say officially that the script for the movie is done.
My Hero Academia The MOVIE: WORLD HEROESâ€™ MISSION Script is finally completed!
Movie releases August 6 in Japan.

Some of you might find this odd due to the fact that animation is already being done for it. And a teaser trailer in fact has already been released for the film. But sometimes a script is given to the animation department early on so that things can get rolling while the story is being finalized, and that appears to be what is happening here.
As for the plot of the third movie, there is a new group of villains known as Humanize and they believe in the idea of further generations of Quirk-users getting so powerful that will end life as we know it. As a result, the Pro-Heroes of the world are going to team with UA Academy students and more to try and stop them.
It won’t be easy though as somewhere along the line Deku is going to be framed for murder. We’ll find out more when the movie arrives in Japan on August 6th.
