Funimation released the English-dubbed trailer for its upcoming anime film My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising. The film will serve as the second film in the My Hero Academia franchise following 2018’s My Hero Academia: Two Heroes. Similar to that movie, this film will follow Class 1-A as they visit a new island. However, they will come across a new villain with a suspicious Quirk ability.
My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising opened in Japan on December 20, and ranked at #3 in its opening weekend. The film has since earned ¥1.5 billion JPY (approximately $14 million USD), and has sold more than 1.21 million tickets.
According to Anime News Network, creator Kōhei Horikoshi previously teased that the film would be the last one for the franchise, as “there won’t be a third film. Probably.” Horikoshi explained that the second film could be seen as a finale of sorts for My Hero Academia, as the film uses one of the concepts he had considered using in the manga’s final battle. As such, he stated that the second film is more “Plus Ultra” than the first one.
The film will be released in over 1,000 theaters across the U.S., Canada, and U.K. on February 26 in both sub-titled and English-dubbed viewings. Tickets are now open for pre-sale on My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising‘s official website.
