"My Hero Academia" is getting a full length film.
As interest in anime culture continues to rise in the US, My Hero Academia looks to capitalize off it's growing success. The hit anime and manga is based on Izuku Midoriya, a young boy born without superpowers in a place where having powers is the standard. He still dreams of becoming a superhero though, and his adventures to become one are the highlight of the series. A My Hero Academia is set to launch a new movie this year, and the first trailer for the film has hit the internet.
Entitled My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, the new film will follow another powerless character named Melissa. The full synopsis of the film (via Comicbook) is as follows:
“After the end of the climactic Final Exams, the U.A. Class members head off to their school field trip for Summer break. However, before they head off to the school field trip, All Might and Deku accept an invitation from someone to go abroad to a floating and mobile manmade city, called “I Island.” All researchers in the world, from both East and West, are gathered in this place, known as the Hollywood of Science, where they research quirks as well as hero supplemental items at the special “I Expo” convention that is currently being held on the island. This is where Deku meets the quirkless girl, Melissa. Melissa also is like him, quirkless. Deku is able to connect with Melissa by recalling when he too was quirkless. During that time, suddenly, despite an iron wall of security surrounding the island, the system is breached by a villain who hacked into it! The people living on the island are all taken hostage! Now, the Hero Association needs to act quickly to deploy their unshakeable “Plan” or else―! The only person who can grasp that key, is none other than the Number One Hero, All Might!”
