Boruto: Naruto the Movie Trailer reveals lots


New Generation, Old Moves, New Boruto

The follow-up to the massively popular Naruto series is Boruto: Naruto the Movie. Apart from the title having a massive identity crisis, the feature film will follow on from the last chapter of the manga series that ended late last year. Many familiar faces will be reappearing in this film along with their offspring. Boruto: Naruto the Movie will focus on Boruto (Naruto's son) as he trains for the Chunin exams with fellow shinobi Sarada (Sasuke's and Sakura's daughter) and newcomer Mitsuki.

I was very skeptical about this movie when it was first announced, but it turns out that the teacher of the new generation squad is Sasuke Uchiha! Revealed in the trailer; Sasuke will be training Boruto's team just like Kakashi did with Team 7 back in the day to prepare them for the Chunin exams. Unfortunately, the trailer revealed too much as it appears Boruto will be able to master both Chidori and Rasengan unless it's a fake out in the real movie. 

2 million copies of a one-off colored manga written and drawn by Masashi Kishimoto will be available for movie goers titled The Day Naruto Became a Hokage. They did a very similar promotion when The Last -Naruto the Movie- was released last year. Japanese rockers KANA-BOON will be doing the theme song for the movie with a track called "Diver"

Boruto: Naruto the Movie will be released 7th August in Japan.
