The Official Guestbook Shinden Fū no Sho book that began being passed out to visitors on Saturday to the Naruto-ten exhibition in Tokyo's Mori Tower revealed a new character for the upcoming Boruto -Naruto the Movie- film named Mitsuki (seen left in the image below.) The character's name literally means "full moon" in the Japanese language.

The character is described in the book:

An enigma shrouded in many mysteries. A boy with a composed expression... His slightly-long white hair has a waviness to it.

Yūko Sanpei will play Boruto (pictured top left in image below) and Kokoro Kikuchi will play Sarada (pictured top right). Junko Takeuchi will return to play Naruto Uzumaki, and Noriaki Sugiyama will return to play Sasuke Uchiha.

Original Naruto manga creator Masashi Kishimoto is credited with the original story, script, and character designs, as well as the chief production supervisor, for the film. Hiroyuki Yamashita (Naruto Shippūden episode director, Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie animation director) is directing the film, and Ukyō Kodachi (Chaos Dragon, Neppu Kairiku Bushi Road) is collaborating with Kishimoto on the script.

The film will open in Japanese theaters on August 7.

Boruto -Naruto the Movie-, the upcoming film sequel to the Naruto manga and The Last -Naruto the Movie-, will tell the story of [Highlight white text to read spoilers] Boruto, Naruto Uzumaki and Hinata Hyūga's son who appeared in the 700th and final chapter of the manga. Kishimoto noted, "I conceived a story in which Boruto and [Sasuke and Sakura's daughter] Sarada appears. Sasuke and Sakura also appear." He also conceived of Boruto's special fighting move.
