The My Hero Academia phenomenon is back in theaters! After Two Heroes in 2019 and Heroes Rising in 2020, it’s time for World Heroes Mission in 2022.

FROM WHAT AGE CAN YOU SEE THIS FILM?
Like Two Heroes and Heroes Rising, World Heroes Mission is recommended From 10 years old. Indeed, although it is very colorful and looks childish in its graphics, the animated film can sometimes be quite violent, with some intense fight scenes that can offend a young audience.
Superheroes hurt themselves fighting relentless villains, sometimes leaving feathers, tears and blood behind. In addition, the plot revolves around a terrorist organization that seeks to exterminate all people with Quirks. A rather dark story if ever there was one. For this reason, World Heroes Mission is not intended for audiences under the age of 10.
However, this dark side of the story is counterbalanced by much funnier moments, especially through the new character, Rody. The latter, who has an unusual Alter that we let you discover, will befriend Izuku Midoriya, hero of the saga.
Of course, Bakugo and his legendary bad mood will also bring his share of laughter. His duet with Shoto Todoroki will inject a good dose of adrenaline into the spectators.
THE SUPERHEROIC PHENOMENON
As a reminder, My Hero Academia is a manga created by Kohei Horikoshi in 2014. With 50 million copies sold, it is one of the best-selling titles internationally. The story takes place in a world where 80% of the population has superpowers called Quirks.

The manga has been adapted into an animated series. The latter currently has 5 seasons. A sixth will arrive in the course of 2022, broadcast on the DNA platform. It will follow the story of World Heroes Mission.
