'Boruto: Naruto the Movie' debuts new Masashi Kishimoto art

The official website for Boruto: Naruto the Movie has unveiled the new main visual for the film drawn by series creator Masashi Kishimoto. According to Crunchyroll, the poster will appear in theaters across Japan beginning June 27.

A sequel to 2014’s The Last: Naruto the Movie, Boruto: Naruto the Movie centers on the son of Naruto Uzumaki, who wants to surpass his father’s deeds. Kishimoto served as the film’s chief production supervisor, and is credited with its story, script and character designs.

Boruto was introduced in the final chapter of the Naruto manga, which was published in November, and appeared in both The Last: Naruto the Movie and the spinoff manga miniseries Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring.

It was announced earlier this month that Boruto: Naruto the Movie will receive a comedy manga tie-in, set for release Aug. 1, just ahead of the film's Japanese premiere.

Kishimoto is scheduled to make his first-ever appearance outside of Japan in October at New York Comic Con.
