After the release of "Boruto: Naruto the movie", fans have been wondering if there would be a sequel. In fact, in his interview to Anime News Network, Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto said that there are several possibilities regarding the Naruto series. "There is nothing firmly in the works at this time. Just that there is always the possibility," he said. However, the latest news surrounding "Boruto: Naruto the Movie" suggests that a spinoff is not in the works as "Naruto Shippuden: Itachi Shinden aka The True Legend of Itachi" will be released in March 2016.

According to reports, Takashi Yano's "True Legend of Itachi" will be adopted into the anime world. The anime will focus on the two novels based on Itachi.

The anime series will trace the life of Itachi as a four-year-old who joins the Ninja Academy. The plot will preoccupy itself with the character of Itachi, who hopes to become the first Uchiha Clan member.

The second novel in the Itachi series titled "The True Legend of Itachi: Dark Night" will also be incorporated into the anime series. The storyline is based on the events that led Itachi to kill the Uchiha Clan while sparing Sasuke.

Apart from this, a new manga set in the Naruto universe will also premiere in 2016. This will focus entirely on Naruto's son Boruto. According to News Hub, Masashi Kishimoto will participate in the adaptation, which will be featured in the Weekly Shonen Jump in spring 2016.

"The new Boruto manga will be written by Ukyo Kodachi and illustrated by Mikio Ikemoto," the website reported.
