The long-awaited fourth installment of the My Hero Academia series, My Hero Academia: You’re Next, will hit North American theaters on October 11, 2024.

An announcement made exclusively to Deadline says the film will be shown with both English subtitles and a dub from Toho International (Godzilla Minus One).

My Hero Academia: You’re Next’s storyline is set in a dystopian society overrun by villains. The plot revolves around Izuku Midoriya, a student at UA High School who strives to fulfill his ideals of heroism. He encounters a villain who imitates the hero he once idolized, according to the official synopsis.

Toho International President Koji Ueda expressed enthusiasm about expanding their role as film distributors in the United States following the success of Godzilla Minus One.

He said, “With the success of Godzilla Minus One, it’s clear that American moviegoers want to experience Japanese theatrical releases the way they were intended – on the big screen with friends and other fans. This has encouraged us to bring additional Japanese films and iconic franchises to U.S. theaters, and we look forward to bringing My Hero Academia: You’re Next to fans nationwide this October.”

The North American release date was announced during the My Hero Academia special event at Anime Expo 2024 in Los Angeles, following an earlier announcement that the film would be released in Japan on August 4.

My Hero Academia began as a manga in 2014, achieving global success with over 100 million copies sold worldwide and multiple appearances on The New York Times Best Seller list. It was subsequently adapted into an anime series in 2016 and has spawned three previous theatrical films: My Hero Academia: Two Heroes (2018), My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising (2019), and My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission (2021).

Netflix has also been confirmed to be involved in a live-action adaptation of My Hero Academia, with Legendary Entertainment producing and distributing the series, with Joby Harold writing the script and Shinsuke Sato directing.
