Funimation announced on Friday that it will screen the My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising (Boku no Hero Academia the Movie -Heroes: Rising-) film in the United States and Canada in more than 1,000 total theaters starting on February 26. The film will have both subtitled and dubbed screenings. Advanced ticket sales will start on January 31.

Funimation Synopsis:

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.

The Cast is as Follows:

  • Tomoyo Kurosawa as Mahoro
  • Yuka Terasaki as Katsuma
  • Yoshio Inoue as Nine
  • Mio Imada as Slice
  • Kousuke Toriumi as Mummy
  • Shunsuke Takeuchi as Chimera

The film opened in Japan on December 20, and ranked at #3 in its opening weekend. The film has earned 1.1 billion yen (about US$10.45 million) as of January 5.

Horikoshi previously teased that the film would be the last one for the franchise, as “there won’t be a third film. Probably.” He explained that the second film can be described as a kind of a finale for My Hero Academia. That is because its story uses one of the concepts he had considered using in the manga’s final battle. As such, he proclaimed that the second film is more “Plus Ultra” than even the first one.
