My Hero Academia is getting a new movie ahead of it’s seventh season.
The sixth season of My Hero Academia was the anime’s biggest yet. The season covered part one of the manga’s Final Act and concluded with Izuku Midoriya rejoining the rest of Class 1-A after spending a brief period as a vigilante hero. Now fans are eagerly anticipating the seventh season, which will decide the fate of the My Hero universe. Fortunately, season seven is already in the works. It will feature an epic battle between the heroes and villains. Izuku, his classmates, and the remaining pro heroes will battle against the villains in a final confrontation.
According to My Hero Academia producers, season seven will feature some of the most intense fights in the anime’s entire run. But fans of My Hero Academia have even more to look forward to, as series creator Kohei Horikoshi recently announced that a new movie is also in development. Kohei Horikoshi made this announcement to Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, saying that the new movie will feature an original story that occurs before the events of My Hero Academia season seven but after season 6. Per his statement the movie will explore the broken hero world following the devastation in season 6.
You can read Kohei’s statement below:
Hello everyone, I’m Kohei Horikoshi, author of My Hero Academia.” “A fourth movie for [My Hero Academia] has just been confirmed! And that’s thanks to your support. Thank you so much! Bones and Toho are already working on new seasons of the anime nonstop. So I was really surprised when they told me there would be a new movie. I couldn’t help but think back to my childhood when a new Dragon Ball movie was released every year. Those made me so excited that I remember sitting in the movie theater with my heart racing like crazy. “So I hope the new generation of kids worldwide can enjoy this movie just as much as I did back then.”
