The fourth trailer of "Boruto: Naruto the Movie" was unveiled recently showcasing more about what fans will be able to expect from the movie and the characters.
In the trailer, we see Boruto in battle using the gentle fist style against who appears to be Shikadai. At the end of the trailer, the aura of mystery surrounding Mitsuki thickens when he reveals who his parents are to Boruto and Sarada, leaving them in shock and leaving fans in the shadows.
The relationship between Boruto and Sarada heading into an intimate direction is also hinted in the trailer when Boruto is shown blushing from being too close to Sarada.
"Mitsuki", which means "Full Moon," is a new character in the series. Fans speculate that his name hints his ties to Toneri, from The Last: Naruto the Movie, and his appearance helps support that theory.
Here's what was written in the Official Guestbook Shinden FÅ« no Shobook: "An enigma shrouded in many mysteries. A boy with a composed expression... His slightly-long white hair has a waviness to it."
Some believe he will be an asset to Boruto instead of an enemy or rival, but some also deem that he will play the role of anti-hero, same way Sasuke and Orochimaru did.
What remains to be seen is what role Mitsuki will play in the trio's dynamic. Will he be like Sasuke, defecting and following his own path, or will he be like Sai was to Team 7, completely supportive.
If he is in fact revealed to be a member of the Ootsutsuki clan, as hinted by his name, then it is likely that he will have a much bigger role in the series instead of simply being the third team member.
According to information from Naruto Reddit, Masashi Kishimoto is expected to make an announcement on July 29 regarding Boruto: Naruto the Movie. Fans believe this will be about the plot surrounding Boruto, Sarada and the other Konoha shinobis.
The film will open in Japanese theaters in August 7 and tickets will go on sale on June 27.
