Boruto: Naruto the Movie Cast, Screenshots Revealed

Those looking forward to the adventures of Boruto, son of Naruto, take note: the main cast and a set of screenshots for the upcoming Boruto: Naruto the Movie have been revealed.

Boruto will be played by Yuuko Sanpei, known for her roles as Nozomi in Precure and Renton in Eureka Seven, while Sarada will be played by Kokoro Kikuchi (Airgear’s Akito).

Oddly enough, Kikuchi played Boruto in last year’s The Last: Naruto the Movie.

“I’m truly happy to have the chance to become a part of the Naruto family. The manga is so legendary – as is Boruto’s father – so I feel a lot of pressure. The fact that I get to play the part of Boruto still hasn’t really sunk in,” commented Sanpei.

Said Kikuchi: “Back in high school, a classmate introduced me to the world of Naruto. It was like nothing I’d ever read, and even 15 years later, I’m really moved by it. Sarada is a character that’s one part cynic, one part hard-working and cute. Everyone, please look forward to it!”

Boruto: Naruto the Movie will debut in Japan this August 7, while the Naruto Gaiden spinoff manga will hit Shonen Jump April 27.
