Behind the Scenes "Naruto Shippuden: Road to Ninja" Pics Show Happy Namikaze/Uzumaki Family

Character designer Tetsuya Nishio sketches out the smiling clan

Masashi Kishimoto and the makers of this summer's Naruto movie, Road to Ninja, are apparently having a lot of fun with what is increasingly obviously a warped reality version of the cast. The production's official Twitter account has lately been offering a look at the feature's happy Namikaze/Uzumaki family. 

 

The anime film is scheduled to hit Japanese theaters on July 28th.
