After one whole year, our favorite ninja anime, Naruto is returning, and this time, fans will be able to relive the arresting story and action in real life, as Naruto will have its first ever live action play in 2018. Naruto series is still not dead, and this announcement bolsters this fact but, somehow the first poster of the film has managed to baffle the audiences. The first ever Naruto Kabuki play in 2018 is expected to be a huge success, and ever since the announcement was made, fans lost their control. If you’re unfamiliar with Kabubi, don’t worry, we got you covered.
Kabuki is basically traditional Japanese drama which is performed by talented men artist, and the play is full of excitement, and it’s accompanied by high-end music, action, dance and many more. It started way back in 1600, and still, it has its importance.
Poster of First Ever Naruto Kabuki Play:
Currently, Naruto’s Kabuki is under work in Japan, and they are preparing for it very seriously, to give fans the same experience as the original series. As of now, it’s confirmed that Hayato Nakamura will play the role of the Uchiha Prodigy, Sasuke Uchiha and Minosuke Bandou will play the role of the Seventh Hokage, Naruto Uzumaki. Since this is Naruto’s first Kabuki play, many fans are stranger to this concept, and that’s why the first poster has raised many eyebrows.
The poster features both Naruto and Sasuke but, their attires are nothing like the ones which we’ve seen in the actual anime, and it looks like, they are paying more attention to historical details, which didn’t bode well for the fans. Also, the two faces in the background are supposed to be the face of one of the greatest shinobi who wreaked havoc and almost wiped all the nations in the Great Fourth Shinobi War, Madara Uchiha. But, honestly, does it really look like the badass?
Fans started laughing at this idea, and the facial expressions are out of this world, he looks anything but, Madara.
This is not the first time that an anime is getting a Kabuki play as, the most popular manga series from Japan, One Piece is responsible for the popularity of anime-inspired Kabuki plays. Hopefully, the live play of Naruto goes well and doesn’t disappoint the fans.
