Ready to meet The Three Musketeers? A third My Hero Academia movie is officially on its way, announced this week by the series’ official Japanese Twitter account and in Weekly Shonen Jump.
The film was first teased on November 23, with three mysterious images that look to feature series characters Deku, Bakugo and Todoroki. When stitched together, they reveal a phrase, reading “He Will Meet ‘The Three Musketeers.”
Speculation ran that this was a hint toward a third film for the My Hero Academia franchise, and that hunch was confirmed today. Movie 3 will come to theaters in Japan in Summer 2021.

In addition to revealing the release window for the film, some production staff was also confirmed, many of which have previously worked on My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising and the anime series.
Director Kenji Nagasaki returns to helm this third entry at Bones, with scriptwriter Yousuke Kuroda, composer Yuki Hayashi and character designer Yoshihiko Umakoshi also returning.
