Returning home to Konohagakure, the young ninja celebrate defeating a group of supposed Akatsuki members. Naruto Uzumaki and Sakura Haruno, however, feel differently. Naruto is jealous of his comrades' congratulatory families, wishing for the presence of his own parents. Sakura, on the other hand, is angry at her embarrassing parents, and wishes for no parents at all. The two clash over their opposing ideals, but are faced with a more pressing matter when the masked Madara Uchiha suddenly appears and transports them to an alternate world.

In this world, Sakura's parents are considered heroes—for they gave their lives to protect Konohagakure from the Nine-Tailed Fox attack 10 years ago. Consequently, Naruto's parents, Minato Namikaze and Kushina Uzumaki, are alive and well. Unable to return home or find the masked Madara, Naruto and Sakura stay in this new world and enjoy the changes they have always longed for. All seems well for the two ninja, until an unexpected threat emerges that pushes Naruto and Sakura to not only fight for the Konohagakure of the alternate world, but also to find a way back to their own.

Ending Theme

This is going to sound pathetic but I cried at this movie. It's strange because watching the original show, you know the common story (Naruto, no parents, rejected by everyone, all that stuff) but I think this movie was the first time you really see how much it affects him and how much Sakura takes for granted. When watching, you really see how much Naruto would have been loved by his parents and it makes it all the more bittersweet.

It also explains that one very random episode in Naruto Shippuden of a "different Sakura" from another world coming in, so kind of glad that clarified ...

They did it. They finally fucking did it. This is a real, actual movie with real, actual stakes for the characters and without a fucking escort mission. It's not even half bad!

The theme they picked (Yes! A real, actual theme!) was the dangers of taking our relationships for granted. I don't relate to it super well, because my parents were awful, but I liked the direction for Naruto. The scenes with his folks were excellent. The bits they allowed Sakura to have with her parents were nice, too.

Sakura gets the short end of the stick, as expected. Despite participating in the isekai plot as much ...

This is the ninth Naruto movie, made around the time when the Ninja War began. The main idea behind the plot is interesting, as Naruto and Sakura are sent to an alternative dimension where there is no war. That is supposed to show what Madara plans to do if he plan succeeds and thus excuse his satanic plans.

Sadly this is still a kids’ show, thus the whole thing ends up being nothing more than a badly written fanfic. I mean, really, you are watching this just because you are aware of how one-dimensional everybody is and want to laugh with a “what if” anecdote. You ...
