Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie is certainly shaping up to be an interesting movie! Based on the scans, drawings, and posters released, the latest Naruto movie is taking us through what seems to be an alternate universe, possibly set through some kind of genjutsu! Naruto’s parents – Minato and Kushina – are alive, Ino looks conservative, Hinata is booming with confidence, Sasuke is a playboy, Guy is laid back, Kakashi is full of hot-blooded passion, and Shikamaru doesn’t seem as smart.
And in a new partial scan we get to add to the list: Tsunade is flat chested, Shizune is large chested, Tonton looks ferocious, and Sai, well, we don’t know what’s going on with Sai there, but he doesn’t look like the Sai we’ve come to know and love.
Additionally, here is a partial scan featuring Sasuke and Hinata from the movie:
Lastly, below you will see a drawing of Minato and baby Naruto. It’s unclear if this is an official sketch or fan art, but it was released by the movie’s distributing company, TOHO.
