I barely started watching anime, and Naruto was the first anime I watched. I'm currently in the middle of Naruto Shippuden (episode 71).

Before I go on, do I have to watch any of the movies, or can I watch them anytime? If it's necessary, what's the order to watch the movies?


1 Answer 1


u/IdRatherBeLurking's comment on Reddit shows the episode number that you should have watched up to before-hand. That's if you don't want any spoilers. Quoted below;

Part 1

  1. Clash in the Land of Snow - after episode 101

  2. Legend of the Stone of Gelel - after episode 160

  3. Guardians of the Crescent Moon Kingdom - after episode 196


Some of these films don't directly follow an episode, so I've deduced where they are in chronological order based on release date.

  1. Naruto Shippūden the Movie - after episode ~23

  2. Bonds - after episode ~70

  3. The Will of Fire - after episode ~121

  4. The Lost Tower - after episode 169

  5. Blood Prison - after episode ~221

  6. Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie - after episode 271

  7. The Last - Naruto the Movie - between chapters 699 and 700 of the manga

Sahan De Silva's comment is right by saying that it won't confuse you regarding the storyline as they are their own short stories.
