Basically, up until this point we’ve been given all the information about the upcoming Boruto movie that we need, apart from who the bad guys are…well today that’s exactly what has been revealed.
I dont like to know too much about a film before going into it because, well…I want to actually enjoy the twists, turns, and shocks, I don’t want all that to be ruined by some pre-release promotional garbage.
Thankfully, most things about Boruto: Naruto The Movie have been kept secret. Though I’m hoping we’re not given much more info than this: Momoshiki and Kinoshiki from the Otsutsuki Clan who will attack Konohagakura to attempt to extract Kurama (the Nine-Tails) out of Naruto and use him for their own evil deeds, much like countless Naruto enemies who came before them.
This news, shown in Shueisha’s latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, also revealed who will voicing the two evil Shinobi: Hiroki Yasumoto will lend his gruff talents to Momoshiki and Daisuke Namikawa will lend his to Kinoshiki.
Yasumoto you’d know from his work as Yasutora Sado from Bleach, Elfman from Fairy Tail, Hozuki from Hozuki No Reitetsu, and many others. Namikawa you’d know as Giotto from Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, Young Hoenheim from Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Yu Narukami from Persona 4: The Animation, and much more.
The film opens in Japanese theatres on the 7th of August and will get one-shot screenings in both Australia and North America sometime after that so keep an eye on the site for dates, times, and locations when they’re made available.
