What Naruto Movies Are Canon

By Kevin

Naruto is a popular cartoon series that produced several movies.

Only two of these movies are considered canon: The Last: Naruto the Movie (2014) and Boruto: Naruto the Movie (2015).

The other nine Naruto films are considered fillers, not canon, and lack any involvement from the series writer, Masashi Kishimoto.

These non-canon movies feature original stories created especially for the films and do not impact the main Naruto storyline.

While the films recognize the chronology and events of the Naruto series, neither Naruto nor Naruto Shippuden references the events of the movies.

The Last: Naruto the Movie, based on a story by Kishimoto, serves as a conclusion to the manga Naruto Shippuden.

Boruto: Naruto the Movie, co-written by Kishimoto, introduces viewers to Naruto's next generation before the release of the Boruto manga.

Despite not being canon, many Naruto movies, such as Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow and Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie, offer entertaining and unique stories within the Naruto world.
