Even though the Naruto manga came to a conclusion this past spring and the anime is still several chapters away from reaching its end, the Naruto franchise is still thriving with an assortment of video game, movie, and manga releases coming out in the near future. As you can see, series creator Masashi Kishimoto isn’t going the Dragon Ball route of making fans wait to see more of their favorite shinobi.
Boruto: Naruto the Movie continues where The Last: Naruto the Movie leaves off by focusing on the new generation of Leaf ninja, specifically Naruto’s son, Boruto, and Sasuke’s daughter, Sarada. The film takes place years after the end of Naruto and is being tied into the Start of a New Era Project to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the Naruto franchise. As seen in the trailer, the plot will focus on Boruto’s training with Sasuke in his attempts to surpass his father’s legacy.
Boruto: Naruto the Movie will be in Japanese theaters on August 7th, and while there’s no current information on an American release date, I think it’s safe to assume it’ll be dubbed and released before too long.
