The PVR Pictures distribution group released the My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising (Boku no Hero Academia the Movie -Heroes: Rising-) film in Indian theaters on Friday. As of press time, the film is listed for screenings in Mumbai, Delhi and NCR (National Capital Region), Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Chennai, Pune, Kolkata, and Kochi. The film will screen in Japanese with English subtitles.

The company describes the film:

All Might and Deku accept an invitation to visit I Island where they battle against a villain who takes the island hostage.

The film opened in Japan in December 2019, and ranked at #3 in its opening weekend. The film has earned 1.5 billion yen (about US$14 million), and has sold more than 1.21 million tickets. The film's 4DX screenings began in January 2020 in 81 theaters in Japan.

PVR Pictures began screening the My Hero Academia: Two Heroes anime film, the previous film in the franchise, in Indian theaters on February 12.

As with the previous My Hero Academia: Two Heroes film, original manga creator Kōhei Horikoshi had overall supervision of the film, and handled the original character designs. Kenji Nagasaki and Yousuke Kuroda returned from the series and the previous film as the director and scriptwriter, respectively. Yoshihiko Umakoshi returned to design the characters, and Yuuki Hayashi once again composed the music. BONES animated the film. Rock band sumika performed the theme song "Higher Ground."

Theatergoers in Japan received an exclusive short manga by Horikoshi titled Boku no Hero Academia Vol. R (My Hero Academia Vol. Rising) as a limited-supply bonus.

Horikoshi had previously teased that the film will be the last one for the franchise, as "there won't be a third film. Probably." He explained that the second film can be described as a kind of a finale for My Hero Academia. That is because its story uses one of the concepts he had wanted to use in the manga's final battle. As such, he proclaimed that the second film would be more "Plus Ultra" than even the first one.

A third film is in the works with a planned opening in Japan this summer.
