Naruto will be having its third stage musical this year, and this time, Akatsuki is joining the battle for Live Spectacle Naruto: Akatsuki no Shirabe. This third play will be featuring a different story that the two previous runs, and they have now revealed three new character visuals for Naruto, Sasuke, and Itachi.

Koudai Matsuoka as Naruto Uzumaki

Ryuuji Satou as Sasuke Uchiha

Shinji Rachi as Itachi Uchiha

If you take a look at the costumes, it seems like the play’s story is taking place AFTER the time skip, which means the play should now be somewhere along the start of Naruto Shippuden. The previous plays were pre-time skip where Naruto and the other gennin were still kids. They also revealed the play’s visual:

The play will be held at the AiiA 2.5D theater in Tokyo from May 19 to June 4, 2017, before heading to Osaka’s Mielparque Hall on June 16-22. The play will finally return to the AiiA 2.5D theater  from July 29-August 6. While the first play visited Singapore, Malaysia, and Macau, there is still no word if the play will be shown outside of Japan.
