‘My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission’: What Is the Movie’s Runtime?
My Hero Academia fans are eagerly anticipating the anime’s sixth season, and they have a new movie to enjoy while they wait. My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission hits U.S. theaters on Oct. 29, and the film promises to ramp up the action following My Hero Academia Season 5. Although it won’t directly tie into the popular anime series, World Heroes’ Mission tells a full story that touches on the original show’s major themes. How long is the new movie?
Deku goes undercover in the 3rd ‘My Hero Academia’ movie
Those wondering what the new My Hero Academia movie is about might be surprised to learn it sees Deku and his friends going undercover — primarily because he’s wanted for murder. The trailer and synopsis don’t dive deeper into that premise. However, it’s probably safe to assume the film’s villain is responsible.
According to Crunchyroll, the Big Bad in My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission has a vendetta against Quirks. And he’s got an entire organization aiding in his efforts to eradicate them:
“When a sinister organization threatens to wipe out all superhuman powers, the fate of the world is on the line. With two hours until the collapse of civilization, Deku, Bakugo, and Todoroki manage to work as a team, but there’s still one problem. Deku’s on the run for murder.”
It sounds like the heroes will have their hands full, meaning it could take a while to stop the villain’s plot. So, what kind of runtime should moviegoers expect from the third My Hero film?
How long is ‘My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission’?
The new My Hero Academia movie may have a lot going on, but its runtime is about average for an anime release. According to Fandango, it clocks in at one hour and 44 minutes. Heroes Rising was about as long, while Two Heroes is the shortest of the three films, boasting a one-hour and 35-minute length.
There’s no post-credits scene for World Heroes’ Mission, so those wondering if they should stick around don’t necessarily need to — though it’s always interesting to see who’s involved in a film’s creation.
Where to watch ‘World Heroes’ Mission’
As of this writing, the new My Hero Academia film is playing exclusively in movie theaters. It should move to streaming platforms sometime after its theatrical run. Both Two Heroes and Heroes Rising eventually debuted on Funimation. World Heroes’ Mission is likely to follow a similar release pattern. That means a Blu-ray and DVD are probably on the horizon as well.
For now, fans will need to head out to theaters to see the latest addition to the anime’s movie lineup. On the bright side, those who can’t make it don’t need to see it to understand My Hero Academia Season 6 — though hopefully, it’ll be available on VOD before the new episodes arrive.
