Announced at Jump Festa on Saturday

The staff of the Naruto anime franchise announced at the Jump Festa event on Saturday that a new anime film project will launch in 2014. More information will be in future issues of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine.

Until now, there has been a new Naruto film every year since 2004. The ninth film, Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie, opened in Japan on July 28 and became the highest grossing film in the franchise. Viz Media has released several of the films in North America, including most recently, Naruto Shippūden: The Will of Fire in October.

Another anime franchise based on a Shonen Jump manga, One Piece, moved from an annual film schedule to one feature every few years with the 2009 release of its 10th film, One Piece Film Strong World.
