My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising Film to Open in the United States and Canada on February 26, 2020

FUNimation Entertainment has announced 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, 2020. The film will have both subtitled and dubbed screenings. Advanced ticket sales will start on January 31, 2020.

FUNimation describes the film:

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.

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising opened in Japanese theaters on December 20, 2019, and ranked at #3 in its opening weekend.
