’Boruto: Naruto the Movie’ was made in 2015 in Japan. It is an animated film and directed by Hiroyuki Yamashita. The plot is based on Masashi Kishimoto’s manga and anime called Naruto.

The manga version is made of redesigns and new concepts that could be included in later arcs. The anime shows some plot elements that were deleted from the writer’s original draft for the film.
The anime focuses on the main character Boruto Uzumaki, Naruto’s son. He had to leave his family due to being the leader of the ninja village they lived in. Sasuke Uchiha suddenly returns to the ninja village to warn the inhabitants about two beings who could harm them and become a big threat. They could destroy the peace in the world that ninjas had set in the previous years.
Kishimoto had a huge role in the making of anime, writing the script, details about each character and screenplay. He has faced some difficulties so many staff members helped him with the project and created some new scenes in the movie.
This movie slowly became the franchise’s highest ranking film. It includes good animation and fight scenes as well as a decent presentation of Boruto’s character. It was criticized mostly for the unexplored relationship between Boruto and his father.

After being warned by Sasuke, Boruto asks him if he could teach him to become stronger than Naruto. Sasuke helps him learn the Rasengan technique and to learn for the upcoming ninja test, Chunin Exam.
