'My Hero Academia' Movie to Premiere at Anime Expo 2018

The first movie based on the popular anime series My Hero Academia will premiere at this year's Anime Expo in July ahead of its release in the fall.

On Thursday, July 5, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes will premiere at the Los Angeles anime convention. Free admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis for badgeholders starting at 12:30 p.m. PDT, with a panel of special guests appearing after the film ends.

The list of scheduled guests include Japanese voice actors Daiki Yamashita (Deku), Mirai Shida (Melissa Shield), Katsuhisa Namase (David Shield), as well as English voice actors Justin Briner (Deku) and Colleen Clinkenbeard (ADR director and voice of Yaoyorozu).

Here's the official synopsis for My Hero Academia: Two Heroes.

"The climactic finals are over, and U.A. is getting ready for the summer training camp. Deku and All Might receive an invitation from a certain person to go overseas to a giant artificial moving city called I-Island. This island, a kind of "science Hollywood" that gathers the knowledge of scientists from around the world, is holding an exhibition called I-Expo showcasing the results of Quirk and hero item research. In the midst of all this, Deku meets a Quirkless girl named Melissa and remembers his own Quirkless past. Out of the blue, the impregnable security system the island boasts is hacked by villains, and all the people on the island are taken as hostages! Now, a plan that could shake hero society has been put into motion! The man who holds the key to it all is the number one hero and Symbol of Peace, All Might."

Season 3 of My Hero Academia is currently airing in Japan and on streaming services including Funimation Now, Crunchyroll and Hulu.
