My Hero Academia will make a home with Netflix: what we know, so far, about it

Netflix’s penchant for live-action manga remakes isn’t going away anytime soon, as far as we can tell. Nor should it have to, since fans for this niche exist in abundance.

The streaming service has revealed that it has tied up a partnership with Legendary Entertainment to make a live-action movie based on My Hero Academia.

Shinsuke Sato, responsible for Alice in Borderland or Bleach, will direct and produce, while Joby Harold, known for Obi-Wan Kenobi, will handle the script for this new film.

Basically, it will all revolve around Deku, a boy who wants to enroll in UA High School, only to become a superhero later, despite lacking the charcteristic powers of one.

Netflix doesn’t have a set release date, but we expect it to happen soon

There’s no mention of casting or an official release date for this Netflix project, in case you were wondering. All that is known is that if it happens, it will happen.

Toho, which is in the anime niche of sorts, will distribute the film in Japanese theaters. As explained by IndieWire, this wonderful news comes four years after Legendary announced plans for a film, in this vein.

Just like previous adaptations, Netflix has plenty of reasons to create a title based on My Hero Academia.

The streaming giant will thus secure the loyalty of a fan base, as it has done with everything it has released in this spectrum so far.

The launch will also give it a chance to bring home some of its subscribers, those who have lately migrated to “other shores”.

Whether or not the new film will be worth your attention remains to be seen – literally and figuratively. A final conclusion can only be drawn once it is released, obviously. Until then, all we can do is enjoy the news.
