The original My Hero Academia movie, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, is joining the lineup at Crunchyroll. Both subbed and dubbed versions will become available on August 17 at 8:00 PM EDT. It is being streamed for people in America, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Caribbean, Ireland, the Nordic countries, Australia, and New Zealand.

The movie hit the big screen in Japan five years ago and ultimately brought in more than 1.64 billion yen (approximately $14.47 million) during its theatrical run there. It also played in North American theaters in the following months, bringing in $5,768,366 between viewers in America and Canada. As part of the release, a red carpet event was held in Los Angeles.

Funimation gave this description for the movie:

The climactic finals are over, and U.A. is getting ready for the summer training camp. Deku and All Might receive an invitation from a certain person to go overseas to a giant artificial moving city called I-Island. This island, a kind of “science Hollywood” that gathers the knowledge of scientists from around the world, is holding an exhibition called I-Expo showcasing the results of Quirk and hero item research. In the midst of all this, Deku meets a Quirkless girl named Melissa and remembers his own Quirkless past. Out of the blue, the impregnable security system the island boasts is hacked by villains, and all the people on the island are taken as hostages! Now, a plan that could shake hero society has been put into motion! The man who holds the key to it all is the number one hero and Symbol of Peace, All Might.

It was made at BONES with Kenji Nagasaki helming the project as director. My Hero Academia mangaka Kohei Horikoshi was involved, working on character designs and taking on the job of being the chief supervisor.
