The PVR Pictures distribution group announced on Twitter on Wednesday that it will release the My Hero Academia: Two Heroes anime film, based on Kōhei Horikoshi's My Hero Academia manga, in Indian theaters on February 12.

My Hero Academia: Two Heroes opened in Japan in August 2018, and earned 500,320,000 yen (about US$4.49 million) in its first three days to rank #4 in its opening weekend. The movie has since earned more than 1.64 billion yen (about US$14.47 million) at the Japanese box office.

Funimation released the film in the United States, and it describes the story:

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.

Horikoshi is credited with the original work, character designs, and as chief supervisor. Returning staff members included director Kenji Nagasaki at BONES, scriptwriter Yousuke Kuroda, character designer Yoshihiko Umakoshi, and composer Yuki Hayashi. TOHO distributed the film in Japan. Masaki Suda performed the film's theme song "Long Hope Philia." amazarashi's Hiromu Akita wrote and composed the piece.

Horikoshi drew the "All Might Rising" one-shot manga for the "Vol. Origin" books that were given out to the first million theatergoers in Japan. Viz Media released the 10-page manga for free in English on its website. The Blu-ray Disc and DVD release of the film included an anime adaptation of the bonus manga.
