It looks like the 3rd anime film for My Hero Academia is all set for release soon from Funimation. Well, soon-ish. I mean, why else would they release this brand new teaser trailer for it?
Funimation officially announces that they will release My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission. This particular anime film will be the 3rd My Hero Academia film after Two Heroes and Heroes Rising. Considering the rave reviews both previous anime films got from critics (Rotten Tomatoes gave them 100% and 90% respectively), we can hopefully expect much the same from this film. Fortunately, it does seem to be the case according to the official synopsis from Funimation:
In My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, U.A. High School students Izuku Midoriya, Shoto Todoroki, and Katsuki Bakugo face the greatest crisis in My Hero Academia history, with only two hours to save the world! During their internship with the number one Pro Hero Endeavor Agency, Deku and his new friend Rody find themselves wanted nationwide for a crime they didn’t commit. Can Deku and his friends stop Humarise’s global plans of eliminating all Quirks?
My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission will debut in over 1,500 US and Canadian theaters on October 29, 2021. The anime film will be in both Japanese audio with English subs, and English dub, so you have the best of both worlds. Tickets will go on sale on October 1, 2021; so watch out for them then. UK and Ireland fans can also expect an October 29, 2021 theatrical release, while Australian and New Zealand fans can watch it a day early on October 28, 2021. Funimation assures that Latin America and Scandinavia will see a release in their respective languages soon.

In other news, Kenji Nagasaki directed My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, which makes sense considering that he’s the current director for the My Hero Academia anime series. The film will also have a runtime of about 104 minutes, so it’s a pretty normal runtime there. Not like Demon Slayer: Mugen Train. Unlike the Demon Slayer film though, this one doesn’t have an age rating yet. We’ll have to wait for word from Funimation on that front later.
Funimation will officially release My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission in US and Canadian theaters on October 29, 2021. Tickets will go on sale on October 1, 2021. If you want to watch this 3rd and probably last anime film in this critically acclaimed, record-breaking, and very popular anime series, check it out then.
