(劇場版NARUTO−ナルト− 疾風伝, Gekijōban Naruto Shippūden?)
The opening scene of the movie shows a prediction of what should happen in the future
of the movie. It shows Naruto battling a monster, only to be killed by it. A funeral
is held for Naruto in his home village, to which Sakura Haruno, Rock Lee and Neji
Hyuga are shown to attend, along with others. The setting then returns to a few days
previous, where a man named Yomi attacks a shrine to retrieve the spirit of Mōryō,
a demon who attempted to take over the world and create his "Thousand Year Kingdom".
Since he is lacking a body, Yomi offers his as a temporary substitute until they can
retrieve Mōryō's original one.
The only threat to Mōryō's plan is a priestess named Shion, who has the ability to
seal his spirit away once more. He raises a stone army from their slumber to attack
the rest of the world while his four subordinates go to eliminate Shion. They are
given special chakra creatures to enhance their strength.
To deal with the threat, Konohagakure sends out many advance teams to stall the stone
army. Naruto, Sakura, Lee and Neji are sent to guard Shion and deliver her to the
shrine where Mōryō's body is kept. They fend off Shion's four would-be assassins,
and, afterwards, Shion prophesies Naruto's upcoming death. Shion's total acceptance
of "fate", as well as her selfish attitude, provokes Naruto into antagonizing her. As
they head for the shrine, they are again ambushed by the assassins and, ultimately,
Shion is killed.
This turns out to be a ruse: the dead "Shion" is actually her servant acting as a
decoy. After Neji orders Naruto to escort Shion to the temple alone, Shion explains
that her predictions work by using others' lives to protect her own. Naruto insists
that he will not die, and likewise will keep Shion safe.
With teamwork, Sakura, Lee and Neji defeat the assassins, and at the mountain temple
where Mōryō's body is kept, Naruto and Shion find the stone army waiting. Naruto
holds the army back while Shion heads inside to begin the sealing ritual. Yomi is
already inside, and tricks Shion into beginning the technique with him inside the
barrier, allowing Mōryō's spirit to reunite with his body. With the stone army
being destroyed by Kakashi, Shikamaru, Guy and Temari, Naruto comes to rescue her.
About to see her prediction of his death(the opening scene) come true, Shion uses her
power to change Naruto's fate. She is able to tap into her true powers, intending to
kill herself and Mōryō to save Naruto (with whom, she has developed feelings for).
Naruto stops her seconds before her death, and creates a gigantic Rasengan with their
combined chakra (Chō Chakra Rasengan [literally: Super Chakra Spiraling Sphere]) to
After the ending credits, Naruto asks Shion what she intends to do now. She replies
that Mōryō was a demon created by the dark thoughts of men, and that there is bound
to be another Mōryō someday. Because of this, she says that she must continue the
line of priestesses that will suppress demons like Mōryō. Shion then asks Naruto if
he will help her (a double entendre asking if he will father her child), much to the
shock of Sakura, Kakashi, and Lee. Naruto, clueless as usual, agrees without
realizing the second meaning of her question.
