My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising arrives in the West on Feb. 26, 2020

Alright heroes in training, get ready for the next My Hero Academia movie. Class 1-A will find themselves left on an island to further their hero training. Wait, on another island? Seriously? Ahem, anyway, this time around they’ll be trying to further hone their quirks, in peace.

Class 1-A visits Nabu Island where they finally get to do some real hero work. The place is so peaceful that it’s more like a vacation … until they’re attacked by a villain with an unfathomable Quirk! His power is eerily familiar, and it looks like Shigaraki had a hand in the plan. But with All Might retired and citizens’ lives on the line, there’s no time for questions. Deku and his friends are the next generation of heroes, and they’re the island’s only hope.

No teachers, no villains, just them and some islanders. Except things never work out the way they intend them to. Yep, there’s a new slew of bad guys created especially for this movie, big surprise there. And it looks like the main bad guy looks a bit like All for One. His hame is Nine and he also has the ability to possess other quirks, in addition to his own.

Though I will say that at least from the trailer, we’re able to see several other MHA characters who didn’t get much or any screen time in the last movie. There’s also no showing of All Might either, so this looks to take place closer to the current story.

The My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising dub arrives in the West at select theaters on February 26th, 2020. If you want to check it out when it releases, head over to the official website to see if the movie will be played in a theater near you.
