The Naruto ninja world It's full of places, characters, and techniques that make it possible to tell a large number of stories. Masashi Kishimoto has explored this reality in part, and continues to do so with Boruto: Naruto the Next Generations, the reins of which he recently took over by replacing writer Ukyo Kodachi.

However, this expansion was also made in the Naruto anime with the various, often unsuccessful fillers and with feature films. Between the first series and the Shippuden series, Studio Pierrot has produced 11 Naruto films.

  • Naruto - The Film: Spring in the Snow Country
  • Naruto - The Movie: The Legend of Gelel's Stone
  • Naruto - The Movie: Guardians of the Kingdom of the Crescent
  • Naruto Shippuden - The Ghost Army
  • Naruto Shippuden - The Master and the Disciple
  • Naruto Shippuden - heir to the will of fire
  • Naruto Shippuden - The Movie: The Lost Tower
  • Naruto - The Movie: The Bloody Prison
  • Naruto - The Way of the Ninja
  • The last one: Naruto the movie
  • Boruto: Naruto the movie

But among the productions on this list, What are the canon Naruto movies? and that relates to the story of the manga? The first nine Naruto films are not canonical, although the ninth (The Way of the Ninja) is overseen by Masashi Kishimoto himself. Different question for the last two, who instead position themselves in the narrative universe.

The last one: Naruto the movie is established during a few years after the events of Chapter 699 Boruto: Naruto the movie is located after chapter 700 and acts as a folder for the new series dedicated to the son of Uzumaki.
