The first full trailer -- and a second teaser trailer -- for the Japanese animated film Boruto: Naruto the Movie have been unleashed.
The two trailers feature our newest generation of ninja, which includes our titular hero Boruto, along with his teammates Sarada (who's controlling a Sharingan) and Mitsuki, as disciples of Sasuke for the Chūnin Exams. We also have a look at Momoshiki, the mysterious dude who launches a surprise attack on the Hidden Leaf Village. Have a look (If your Japanese is a bit rusty, fear not! Anime News Network has provided a very handy English translation for the full trailer below):
Narrator: In the place where leaves dance, the fire still burns. The fire casts shadows over the village, and the leaves bud once more.

Sasuke: So, you're Naruto's son?

Naruto manga creator Masashi Kishimoto is writing the original story and script. He also does the character designs and is the chief production supervisor. Hiroyuki Yamashita (Ninja: Naruto the Movie animation director) is directing the movie, while Ukyō Kodachi (Chaos Dragon, Neppu Kairiku Bushi Road) is co-writing the script with Kishimoto. Here’s a movie synopsis:

He ends up meeting his father's friend Sasuke, and requests to become... his apprentice!? The curtain rises on the story of the new generation written by Masashi Kishimoto!
Boruto: Naruto the Movie will open in Japan on Aug. 7.
