EXCLUSIVE! MY HERO ACADEMIA: Endeavor Voice Actor Patrick Seitz On How The Film Differs From The Series

Ahead of tomorrow's theatrical release of World Heroes' Mission, we spoke exclusively with the cast, and Endeavor Voice Actor Patrick Seitz detailed the differences between the series and the new film.

Interviews Opinion

In less than 24 hours, fans of Deku, All Might, and the rest of the gang will head to theaters to see the third My Hero Academia film on the big screen. Titled My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission, 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 the My Hero Academia 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 as the differences between a movie like World Heroes' Mission versus the series itself.

You can find the transcript of Patrick's comments 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 to 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 proper definitely inform what they're doing in the movie.

Even if they're not holding up traffic with a stop sign and be like, "okay, we got to work on our issues." I mean, they're 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, you hit the ground running. It's not a pocket universe, but really is just 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.

At 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; 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.


But 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 at this moment 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 I feel like the movie really does that.

I mean, going into it, you're like, "okay, I know who these people are. The work has been done. We can see how they are reacting to this specific challenge, 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.

What do you guys think of these comments from Endeavor Voice Actor Patrick Seitz? Are you excited to check out My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission this weekend?

Continuing our coverage in support of the new film My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission, this chat features voice actors David Matranga and Patrick Seitz, who respectively play the characters of Todoroki and Endeavor.

We had a great time chatting about their experience with the new film as well as the familiar relationship between Todoroki and his father, Endeavor. David also goes into detail about his character's relationship with Bakugou, which pairs perfectly with our prior chat with voice actor Clifford Chapin, who brings Bakugou to life.  

Meanwhile, Patrick explains the difference to him between this My Hero Academia film versus the series as a whole, and why he thinks the movie equates to ice cream for breakfast.

My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission hits theaters tomorrow, October 29th.
