Fans of Naruto, the hit manga series that graced the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine every week, were dealt a heavy blow back in November 2014 when the epic series ended after 15 years.

While they may have closed the book on the manga series, thankfully it’s not the last chapter in the Naruto franchise, as all our favourite characters will be returning, this time on stage in a live action spectacular set to tour Japan from 21 March 2015.

Billed as a musical that covers the breadth of the manga series from volume 1 – 27, the organisers are promising plenty of dance, songs, drama and acrobatics on stage. The following cast images give us a first look at the amazing costumes we can expect to see, including impressive attention to detail that brings each character out of the manga world to live and breathe among us.
