posted on by Tiara Hamilton
Film slated for release December 6 in Japan

Yahoo Japan began streaming a full trailer for the upcoming The Last -Naruto the Movie- on Friday. The video features the theme song "Hoshi no Utsuwa" (Vessel of a Star) by Sukima Switch.

The text at the end reads: "This is Naruto like you've never seen in the movies, until now."

Weekly Shonen Jump and Jump J Books describe the story of the movie and its novelization:

The moon has begun moving closer to Earth! As it is, the moon will crumble and meteorites will rain down on Earth's surface. As the last days of Earth approach, Hanabi Hyūga is abducted by a mysterious man in Konoha, and Naruto, Sakura, Sai, Shikamaru, and Hinata set off on a rescue mission! Can Naruto and the others overcome this crisis?

The Last -Naruto the Movie- will open in Japanese theaters on December 6, and it will be the first Naruto film in two years. The film is also part of the larger "Naruto Shin Jidai Kaimaku Project" (Naruto's New Era Opening Project) marking the 15th anniversary of the original manga. Manga creator Masashi Kishimoto is credited with the original story, character designs, and chief story supervisor of the film. In particular, he is drawing new designs for the title character in the movie, as well as for other characters. Tsuneo Kobayashi (The Twelve Kingdoms, Emma: A Victorian Romance, Kurokami The Animation) is directing the film, and Sukima Switch is contributing the main theme song as well as voice-acting ninja.

Those who see The Last -Naruto the Movie- in theaters will receive a bonus Official Movie Book Naruto Hiden Retsu no Sho. The book is a spinoff of the Naruto: The Official Character Data Book series. The limited-edition official fan book in theaters will include a manga, drawn exclusively for the movie by original Naruto manga creator Masashi Kishimoto. Weekly Shonen Jump teases that the back of the book will feature a mysterious illustration.
