It was a little over a week ago that I shared the Official Dub Trailer for the Sony Pictures Releasing feature “My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising” and now my fellow geeks, the moment has arrived and this film is in theaters for a limited time. Let’s review the premise and incredible voice casting (I’ve listed both the Japanese and English players) after the dynamic poster down below.
The Premise: A group of youths aspiring to become professional superheroes, fight in a world full of people with abilities, also known as quirks. Deku and his fellow classmates from Hero Academy face Nine, the strongest villain yet.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though we had mentioned enjoying the trailer back in that post, there is no way that I will be checking this out in the theaters. Most of it is based on the level of overall exhaustion being dealt with after four days of the annual Toy Fair. Yes I went all four days and according to my mobile device clocked something like 28 miles. I barely had the strength to make the coffee this morning but I did have to rally to get this announcement up for you. So what do you think my readers? Will you be checking this one out while its in the cinemas? I believe that the run is limited so you better decide quick if you find this interesting. You can chime in down below in the comments. As I close up, I offer a shameless plug suggesting that you click and follow our Official Social Networks of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube to see some of the Toy Fair stuff that has already gone online. See you next time.
