Naruto, which started airing twenty years ago on October 3rd, 2002, is one of the most popular entertainment franchises in the world. To celebrate the 20th anniversary, many new projects are being announced.
As a part of numerous new projects that are already announced, including the opening of a new Naruto website, Sasuke is getting his manga adaptation, multiple new Naruto illustrations, and now, a 10-minute promotional video that summarizes the critical events in Naruto has been released.

The creator of the Naruto manga series, Masashi Kishimoto, commented that Naruto anime is made to be enjoyed not only for Japanese people but by overseas fans as well. He further said that various projects will be announced in future so please look forward to it.
Fans are loving the newly animated Naruto scenes, and if the production committee decides to remake the whole Naruto series, it is undoubtedly going to be breaking some streaming records.
Naruto anime is based on the manga of the same name, written and drawn by Masashi Kishimoto, who began publishing the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1999. Fifteen years later, he ended the manga series in 2015. The manga series has been collected into 72 volumes.
Pierrot Studio picked up the manga for an anime adaptation, broadcasted in Japan from 2002 to 2005, having a total of 220 episodes. A sequel anime series titled “Naruto Shippuden” started airing in 2007 and ended in 2017 after 500 episodes. The anime series is available on Crunchyroll for streaming.
