Funimation Streams English-Dubbed Trailer of “My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising” Anime Film

Posted in: Anime News

An English-dubbed trailer for My Hero Academia the Movie – Heroes: Rising – film was streamed by Funimation this Tuesday. Get to hear the English voices of the film’s new characters Nine, Slice, and Katsuma for the first time in the trailer here!

The film will be screened by Funimation in over 1,000 cinemas in the US and Canada starting on February 26. Fans will also be given the choice to watch the film in either English dub or English sub.

Funimation describes the film as such:

“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.”

Director Kenji Nagasaki and scriptwriter Yousuke Kuroda were earlier announced to be reprising their roles from both the film and the TV series. Other staff returns include Yoshihiko Umakoshi who still handled character design and Yuuki Hayashi who composed the film’s music. Creator Kohei Horikoshi is also on board as the general supervisor and original character designer for the Heroes: Rising movie. The movie will be produced by BONES, who also handled My Hero Academia’s TV series and first movie.

During the Hero Fes event in Japan last August, manga author Horikoshi has stated that the movie will be the last for the franchise, because “there won’t be a third film. Probably.” He elaborated on this, saying that the film is a finale of sorts to My Hero Academia, because the battles and story concepts that will be seen in the film is how he envisioned the manga’s final battle. To lighten the mood his somewhat sad pronouncement caused, Horikoshi teased that the movie will be even more “Plus Ultra” than the first, as it will involve the entire class 1-A (unlike in the first movie, where some members of the class were relegated to smaller roles).

My Hero Academia the Movie – Heroes: Rising – was released in Japan last December 2019.
