Yosh! The latest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump has just hit shelves over in Japan and, with every weekly release, comes some awesome news about out favorite Shonen titles.
This week, the pop culture world gets another great look at the upcoming film Boruto: Naruto The Movie. Now that our heroes (Naruto and his pals) have grown up, gotten married, and had kids, it’s up to the next generation of Shinobi to get strong enough to defend the village.
It seems as though most of the characters from the original Naruto series all got together and started having children at the exact same time because most of their kids are now in the same class.
In Boruto: Naruto The Movie, we will follow the new Team 7 which is now made up of Boruto who is Naruto and Hinata’s son, Sarada who is Sasuke and possibly Sakura’s daughter (read the Manga), and Mitsuki who looks oddly a great deal like the antagonist of The Last: Naruto The Movie.
Whether or not there’s a connection between the two is still more or less unknown but many people believe this young Ninja to be related to the white-haired, moon-dweller who once threatened the world as a whole.
Though the Manga featuring these characters has already begun and the first few chapters have already been released around the world alongside the designs of these new characters, this magazine scan shows, in full, just exactly what they’re going to look like in the upcoming movie.
Boruto with his tracksuit, Sarada with clothes similar to her Medic mother, and Mitsuki with more traditional attire, these three are the new Team 7 and they look like they’re going to kick some serious but in the upcoming movie which is set to open in Japanese theatres on the 7th of August, to then be shown down here in Australia thanks to Madman Entertainment sometime after.
