While American Naruto fans will be able to enjoy the ninja’s latest film, The Last: Naruto the Movie, in theatres, it appears that Canadians will miss out.

In an email exchange with Eleven Arts, the film’s North American distributor explained that there are no plans for a theatrical release of The Last: Naruto the Movie north of the border. However, Eleven Arts did mention that if there was a demand for the film, their decision might change. A “Demand it” link on Eleven Arts’ web site allows visitors to petition the film be shown in a city of their choice. If enough requests are received, it’s possible The Last: Naruto the Movie will be shown in Canada.

The most recent Naruto movie to be screened in Canadian theatres was Road to Ninja – Naruto the Movie back in September 2014.

Naruto is back on the big screen for a limited time release this summer! The English dub of Road to Ninja – Naruto the Movie will be screened at select theatres in major cities across the United States on Friday, August 29th, 2014.

Before the birth of Naruto, the Nine-Tailed Fox demon ravaged the Village Hidden in the Leaves, released by a mysterious masked shinobi. Together Minato Namikaze, the Fourth Hokage, and Kushina Uzumaki, his wife, subdued the beast, sealing it in their newly born child: Naruto. With the village saved, the defeated shinobi disappears.

With Naruto grown up, another threat has emerged — the return of the Akatsuki. The group once considered dead, is once again conquered, but this time by Naruto and his friends. While the village rejoices over the victory, Naruto encounters a shadowy figure, the very same shinobi behind the death of his parents.

Tickets for Road to Ninja – Naruto the Movie can be purchased starting Friday, July 11th, 2014. A Canadian schedule was not mentioned in the press release.
