Back in December, we reported that there was a fifth Naruto Shippuden (or eighth Naruto movie) in the works. Not much information was released, and still details are a bit sparse, but the Japanese television network, TV Tokyo, has released a title – Naruto Shippuden Movie: Blood Prison! The headline of the movie is “Naruto is Jailed, What on Earth Happened!?” As you can see from the trailer below there is some kind of incident with the Raikage that leads Naruto to jail on the account of “murder”.
Along with the release of Naruto Shippuden Movie 5: Blood Prison, there will be a short special that will go along with it titled “Naruto vs Konohamaru: The Burning Chunin Exam”. Not much is known about that either, but based on the title, we can predict both Naruto and Konohamaru have the Chunin Exams on their mind. Generally the short specials that come out with the Naruto Shippuden movies are humorous, so we don’t anticipate anything serious.
Both Naruto Shippuden Movie 5: Blood Prison and the Naruto vs Konohamaru special are slated to hit Japanese theaters July 30, 2011.
