Naruto Shippuden: The Movie
The adventures of adolescent ninja Naruto Uzumaki continue in the fourth movie based on the popular anime character created by Masashi Kishimoto. In this adventure, the mighty Naruto must protect a priestess from a demon, and to do so, he must die. Or at least, this is what the young leader believes when the priestess foresees his death. Convinced he can only save the priestess -- and the world -- by sacrificing himself, Naruto faces his fate.

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Naruto Shippuden: The Movie is a 2007 anime movie featuring the titular teen ninja whose TV show is on Disney XD in America. For younger viewers not well-versed in anime -- especially those who might have a hard time keeping up with the English subtitles -- the intricacies of the plot could be a bit much to comprehend. There is animated and martial arts-style violence throughout, including a scene in which a warrior slits open his chest so a spirit can enter him. In another scene, a young character behaves in an intoxicated manner after eating a chocolate ball filled with whiskey. There also are a few rare instances of Naruto cursing: "bastard," "hell," and "damn." With all this taken into consideration, this movie is best for older tweens and up, especially for those who are big anime fans.
