OtakuFeed found out from Variety that Friday Legendary’s Hollywood live-action movie adaption of Kōhei Horikoshi My Hero Academia manga will be directed by Shinsuke Satō (live-action Bleach, Alice in Borderland, Kingdom, Death Note Light up the NEW world, Gantz, I am a Hero).

Alex Garcia and Jay Ashenfelter are supervising the project for Legendary Entertainment, while Ryōsuke Yoritomi, the manga’s editor-in-chief, will supervise the project for Shueisha. TOHO will publish the film in Japan.

Horikoshi issued the manga series in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in July 2014. The manga’s 31st compiled book volume was issued in Japan on August 4. Viz Media distributes the manga in English digitally and in print in North America. Shueisha’s MANGA Plus service also issues the manga in English digitally.

The anime’s first 13-episode season was premiered in April 2016. A two-episode initial video anime for the franchise was premiered in Japan in August 2020, and Funimation and Crunchyroll aired the episodes.

 Funimation and Crunchyroll are both airing the anime with English subtitles. In addition, Funimation is streaming the season’s English dub. The season started streaming on Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block on May 8.

My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes’ Mission, the third anime film in the My Hero Academia franchise, opened last Friday and sold about 720,000 tickets to get about 940 million yen (about US$8.51 million) from Friday to Monday
