Considered to be the pinnacle of all the works of “Naruto” creator Masashi Kishimoto, fans are sure to see impressive fight scenes in the upcoming “Boruto: Naruto the Movie.”

And scans about the movie by Weekly Shonen Jump (WSJ), via ShonenGamez, went rounds on the Internet recently showing Momoshiki Otsutsuki targeting Naruto Uzumaki after all, kidnapping him in the climax of the Chuunin exams. The reason could be Momoshiki’s intention of becoming the most powerful ninja in the Shinobi world.

In the “Boruto: Naruto the Movie,” Momoshiki’s intention was different with Kaguya Otsutsuki’s. While Kaguya aimed to take all the Chakra in the world to bring back the 10-tails Jinchuriki, Momoshiki wanted to get every trickle of Chakra and become, somewhat, a god.

Kidnapping Naruto, since he had Kurama’s Chakra, and sip them out would definitely fulfill Momoshiki’s evil plan. But since he does not yet have the 10-tails Jinchuriki, he used red Chakra pills as his cheap imitation of the beast’s power.

The WSJ scan also highlighted the annual Chuunin exams in which Boruto Uzumaki, Sarada Uchiha, and Mitsuki (who was shockingly Orochimaru’s son) would team up to pass the tests. It also showed the competitive Sarada declaring her eternal dream: become Konohagakure’s next Hokage.

The scan also featured Boruto able to pull off his version of little but powerful Rasengan, which helped him pass various Chuunin exams in the “Boruto: Naruto the Movie.” His Rasengan was the result of training under Sasuke Uchiha – Naruto’s friend and powerful rival.

Currently, Lionsgate is reportedly working on a live-action film adaptation. The company was rumored to have asked Michael Gracy, Avi Arad, and Ari Arad to direct the film, Design & Trend reported.


Although this surely is exciting, the company is yet to release an official statement. So, take this with a grain of salt.

“Boruto: Naruto the Movie” is set to hit U.S. theaters on October 10.
