Boruto Naruto the movie is due to premiere in Japanese theaters on August 7 of this year.
The future of the Naruto franchise depends on the success of this movie.
But for the moment Kishimoto-sensei himself has no plans for a continuation story in manga beyond Naruto Gaiden.
And I can hardly blame him, working for 96 hours a week, for 16 years straight and ultimately getting backlash from fans that didn’t get their ship pairing made a reality.
And in the process he left out in the open quite some questions that we may not see answered for a long, long time.
Finally the movie got a US release date on October 10th, Naruto’s birthday, as Kishimoto-sensei will attend NY Comic Con during those days.
Among other good news is that we’ll definitely know more about Mitsuki and his abilities in this movie:
Deemed as a brilliant shinobi, Mitsuki remains a mystery with his calm and composed behavior, quite the contrast to Boruto and Sarada. Seemingly his main ability is to stretch his limbs to imprison his oponents.
Does this sound quite familiar to you??
