It’s For Real! Boruto -Naruto The Movie Has A Sequel!

Last year, fans of Naruto and Naruto  Shippuden enjoyed the spin-off film, Boruto -Naruto The Movie.  

To recap the movie:

Boruto is the son of the Seventh Hokage Naruto. However, instead of being in awe of his famous father, Boruto completely rejects Naruto. 

Like his father Naruto before him, Boruto appears to be an unruly son. However his one and only goal is to surpass his father, who is highly respected as a hero. To this end he meets Sasuke, his father's old friend and requests to become his apprentice. It is with this request that a new generation of Hidden Leaf Village Ninjas adventures begin. 

Fans will remember that by the end of the movie Boruto was totally in awe of his father, Naruto,  and because of the adversaries the two of them faced together, they now have the making of a good and lasting  father and son relationship. 

In addition, and  according to Anime News Network, because of the success of the Boruto -Naruto The Movie,  not only is there a sequel in the making for a 2017 release, but there will also be  a Manga.  As for the title Boruto -Naruto the Movie- Sequel is all we have at this writing.
Also according to Anime News Network,  the Japanese website CinemaToday uploaded the poster for the Boruto -Naruto the Movie- sequel on Monday. The poster listed the main cast members for the film as: 

Yuko Sanpei as Boruto Uzumaki
Kokoro Kikuchi as Sarada Uchiha
Junko Takeuchi as Naruto Uzumaki
Noriaki Sugiyama as Sasuke Uchiha

Kikuchi previously played the young Boruto in The Last -Naruto the Movie-.

All this said,  how great it would be if this upcoming  movie sequel and the manga lead to a Boruto anime series.

Coming This March 2016 From FUNimation Entertainment: The Boy and the Beast

The Boy and the Beast

In select theaters starting March 4, 2016.

The latest feature film from award-winning Japanese director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, Wolf Children): When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he’s taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who’s been searching for the perfect apprentice. Despite their constant bickering, Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely pair will be put to the ultimate test—a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage. - From FUNIMATION FILMS

 Director: Mamoru Hosoda

About the Mamoru Hosoda:

Masterful animator and director Mamoru Hosoda has been called “the preeminent director of theatrical animation in Japan today, the obvious spiritual heir to Hayao Miyazaki.” (Brain Camp, Otaku USA Magazine) This is high praise indeed, but Hosoda’s stellar body of work certainly merits any and all plaudits. Trained as an oil painter at Kanazawa University of Arts and Crafts, Hosoda honed his considerable skills working at famed anime production houses such as Toei and Studio Ghibli. His directorial credits include The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars, and Wolf Children, all three of which received the Japan Academy Prize for Best Animated Film

In a futuristic Japan, the Sibyl System is charged with keeping the peace. Using extensive surveillance and biological monitoring to gauge the likelihood that individuals will commit a crime, the police are able to use weapons called Dominators to remove potential criminals from the population before they become a problem. Confident with the success of the System within their own borders, the Japanese government has begun to export the technology to other countries, planning to ultimately spread the System across the globe.

When the state of SEAUn brings the Sibyl System in to test its effectiveness, it becomes a haven of peace and safety—for a time. Eventually, terrorists from SEAUn begin appearing in Japan, somehow slipping through the System’s security and attacking from within. Desperate for answers, Inspector Akane Tsunemori is sent overseas to bring the terrorists to justice. But when her investigation forces her into a standoff with an old ally, will she be able to pull the trigger?
