Baby Naruto, he’s so cute, taking what may be his first steps from Father Minato to Mommy Kushina! The drawing below is from Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie’s character designer, Tetsuya Nishio. The movie takes Naruto and Sakura into an alternate reality world set by genjutsu by Tobi. It’s unclear if these drawings will make their way to the movie in animated format, but it certainly does give the movie feel. Not just because these are the character designer’s work, but because in Road to Ninja, life seems opposite for everybody.
We have to wonder if we will get to see an alternate Naruto in the movie, one who had parents, in addition to the one we all know in love. Or will our Naruto just be tricked into actually believing Minato and Kushina are alive? The extent of Tobi’s genjutsu hasn’t been revealed, but that is one of the reasons why we at Anime Games Online can’t wait to watch what looks to be the best Naruto movie yet!
