The movie’s official website has revealed that Ryo Yoshizawa (Bleach, Tokyo Revengers) has joined the film’s cast as Rody Soul. Soul was designed by series creator Kohei Horikoshi.

While much about the upcoming film remains a mystery, we now know it will follow heroes Deku, Bakugo and Todoroki (with new suits!) as they look to take down a mysterious organization known as “HUMANIZE,” who are looking to take out Quirk holders.

They then meet Rody who gave up on his dreams to make a living and finds himself distrustful of heroes, though he keeps that a secret. The group will work together to stop the attacks.

My Hero Academia: World Heroes Mission Rody Soul

My Hero Academia THE MOVIE: World Heroes’ Mission arrives in theaters in Japan on August 6.
