In less than 24 hours, fans of Deku, All Might, and the rest of the gang will head to theaters to see the thirdÂ My Hero AcademiaÂ film on the big screen. TitledÂ My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission,Â the movie focuses on Todoroki, Izuku, Bakugou, and a character named Rody.
During a recent press junket, we had the opportunity to speak with the entire English voice cast and get a plethora of perspectives on the newest adventure in theÂ My Hero AcademiaÂ franchise.
After sharing our chats with Deku voice actor Justin Briner and Bakugou voice actor Clifford Chapin, we're thrilled to bring you our conversation with Endeavor voice actor Patrick Seitz. He goes into great detail about the relationship between his character and Todoroki, his son, as well asÂ the differences between a movie likeÂ World Heroes' MissionÂ versus the series itself.
You can find the transcript of Patrick's commentsÂ below, and the full video interview can be found by scrolling to the bottom.
Patrick Seitz: It's weird, 'cause it's such an ensemble show. And then, in a movie, you have to hit the ground running so hard, and there's not a lot of time toÂ soak in the antecedent action. But I feel like for both of them, [Endeavor & Todoroki], the work they've been doing and the things they've been experiencing in the show properÂ definitely inform what they're doing in the movie.
Even if they're notÂ holding up traffic with a stop sign and be like, "okay, we got to work on our issues." I mean, they'reÂ doing their own thing separately, but I feel like the dividends are there from the moments they've had in the show proper.
Whenever you have a situation where you got a one-off movie, youÂ hit the ground running.Â It's not a pocket universe, but really is justÂ an hour and a half, two hours unto itself where you can do what you want to do, give them the big spectacle, give them the huge screen. And you've done so much work in the series itself that you don't need to move all those relationships forward.
AtÂ the moment, you can really say, "okay, it's my cheat day. I'm going to eat whatever I want." And that's not to say there's no value or nutrition;Â it's just to say, "Hey man, if you want your breakfast to be ice cream, you can." I mean, that's what a movie is to me, ice cream for breakfast, and also maybe ice cream for lunch and maybe some ice cream for dinner, to round it out and be three for three.
ButÂ I mean, you can capitalize on all the work you've been doing in the show proper and be like, "okay, what one big story do I want to tell atÂ this momentÂ and just swing for the fence and really capitalize on the time and the spectacle of it?" So just put them in this particular sandbox and let them go. And IÂ feel like the movie really does that.
I mean, going into it, you're like, "okay, I know who these people are. TheÂ work has been done. We can see how they are reacting to this specific challenge,Â which is nice. I mean, I love it when the work is being done. I also like it when they're like, "okay, so stuff happens." It's the "stuff happens" time.
