My Hero Academia will be explored by Netflix in the form of a new live-action film, which Joby Harold will write and Legendary Entertainment will produce. Here is what we currently know.
Khei Horikoshi is the author of the manga series My Hero Academia, which is featured in the Weekly Shnen Jump publication. One of the most well-known Japanese fictional properties today, nearly 65 million copies of the manga alone were in print as of January 2022. The anime is currently in the middle of its sixth season, and each week, a sizable number of viewers return to watch new episodes.
Izuku Midoriya, a “Quirkless” boy living in a world populated with superheroes and other superpowered beings, is the protagonist of the novel. Midoriya enrols at the famous U.A. High School, Japan’s top hero school, in order to pursue his dream of becoming the best hero in the world.
Who is behind Netflix’s live-action My Hero Academia film?
Joby Harold has agreed to write. The writer, director, and producer is best known for his recent work on Disney’s Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series, as well as his collaboration with Zack Snyder on Netflix’s Army of the Dead. Transformers: Rise of the Beast and Atlas, a Jennifer Lopez film, are among the upcoming projects.
Shinsuke Sato (best known for his work on Netflix’s Alice in Borderland) is also a part of the live-action film. The new project is produced by Mary Parent and Alex Garcia of Legendary Entertainment. They are the same production company that is responsible for Netflix’s God Country and Gundam.
Is My Hero Academia available on Netflix?
Currently, Netflix isn’t the ideal option if you want to catch up on the anime before the film comes out. The primary anime series and its spin-offs have seasons 1-6 available on Netflix in Asian countries like Netflix Japan and Netflix India, whereas seasons 1-2 are only available in a few countries like the UK, the Netherlands, South Africa, and France. The main show is available to watch in the United States on Hulu and Funimation, while some of the spinoffs are available on Starz. With one major exception, Netflix will own the global rights to the new film. It won’t be uploaded to Netflix Japan; Toho Co., Ltd. will be in charge of distribution.
