A new visual for My Hero Academia the Movie: The Two Heroes has been released, showing off the film’s two original characters, Melissa and Devitt, along with All Might and the students of Class 1-A. Along with that is a synopsis providing a tease of additional information:
Take hold of your fate in a life threatening situation! Deku is wearing a mysterious item on his right arm as his stands next to Melissa. Behind them stands a giant 200 story tower as Bakugo, Ochako, Iida, and Todoroki, and other familiar faces come full force! All Might’s friend David is also present. What kind of meaning does his facial expression give off?
My Hero Academia Movie will open in Japanese theaters on August 3, 2018. In terms of plot, it will take place overseas on a giant manmade floating movable city called I Island after the Final Exam Arc, during another summer in the “Forest Training Arc” which Deku and All Might travel to. Melissa is a a quirkless girl whom Deku meets on I Island and Devitt is Melissa’s father and a friend of All Might in his younger days. Devitt is also scientist who makes hero support items and Melissa works hard to follow in his footsteps. The film will show All Might in his younger days as a pro hero.
The original creator of My Hero Academia, Kōhei Horikoshi, is credited with the original work, character designs, and as chief supervisor for the movie.
