The movie is set to feature an original story in the anime timeline. It will be produced by Bones and animated by TOHO Animation.
Author Kohei Horikoshi’s comment in the magazine was as follows:
“Hello everyone, I’m Kohei Horikoshi author of My Hero Academia.
A 4th movie for MHA 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 my so excited that I remember sitting in the movie theater with my heart racing like crazy.
So I hope the new generation of kids around the world can enjoy this movie just as much as me back then!
It’ll take place after the War from season 6, meaning that the collapsed society will be the stage this time.
After having been through so much and learning so many things, who will Deku and his friends fight against this time? What will they protect?! Look forward to it!”
No release date or official plot has been revealed yet.
About My Hero Academia
The My Hero Academia TV anime is based on Kohei Horikoshi’s manga of the same name.
Kohei Horikoshi launched My Hero Academia in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine on July 14, 2014.
The 37th volume of the manga was released on February 3, 2023.
The manga is published in English on Viz Media’s manga reading platform and Shueisha’s Manga Plus platform.
Viz Media describes the manga as:
What would the world be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called Quirks?
Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study?
The Hero Academy, of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless?
