Obi-Wan Kenobi Writer’s Live-Action My Hero Academia Movie Finds Home At Netflix

Obi-Wan Kenobi writer Joby Harold’s live-action My Hero Academia movie finds it’s home at Netflix, as reported by Variety. After, everyone clambered to get the film, it turns out Netflix has won the rights to this live-action adaptation of the popular Manga property. It was announced that renowned Japanese filmmaker Shinsuke Sato (Alice in Borderland) would direct and executive produce the live-action movie back in August 2021.

Joby Harold is in charge of the screenplay. Harold’s last work was being the last of many hands on the script for Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Though I know almost nothing about My Hero Academia, I know how popular the Manga is. Even as someone who never got into Anime or Manga, I still know the name My Hero Academia. However I won’t embarrass myself and try and act like I could tell you a single character or plot point from the story.

Though what I can do is copy this explanation from the Variety article. Does sound an interesting premise to me, perhaps I’ll check out the movie when it arrives.

“My Hero Academia” follows superhero fanboy Izuku Midoriya (aka Deku), who was born without a “quirk” — the type of “exceptional ability” 80% of Earth’s population has manifested — therefore crushing his dream of going to U.A. High School, the most prestigious hero training academy, and becoming the next “All Might,” or the greatest hero the world has ever known. But, after a chance encounter with All Might himself, Midoriya vows to work as hard as he can, quirk or no quirk, to become a symbol of peace and a beacon of hope for the world.

At the moment there is no indication of when this movie will film. Ergo, we can give no idea of when this may make it to the streaming giant. The movie will also be released theatrically in Japan.

I can’t say that I am a huge fan of Joby Harold’s work so far, there’s been some good and some rough for me. However that is all subjective to ones own tastes.
