Will the anime have a different story than the latest movies? The movies were too rushed, and they got a bit too far from the anime story.
Edit: One of the things I want to find out is if the time-skip would also be in the Anime.

    They were "rushed" in relation to the Anime, but the manga ended in November of 2014. Naruto the Last was released approximately 6 months later, so they were continuations of the manga, completely unrelated to the anime's time schedule. The anime is finally ending this week as i have heard, almost 2 years after the manga, but can only do so because much of the content in the last 2 years was filler.

Interestingly, even though almost all the Naruto movies are fillers, they are part of the storyline. Check this post.

The exceptions are the latest two movies. "The Last: Naruto Movie" is officially classified as chapter 699.5 in the Naruto manga, while "Boruto: Naruto the Movie" is in the beginning chapters of Boruto manga.
