The ever-popular Naruto anime recently celebrated its 20th anniversary a few months ago, but the celebrations aren’t over just yet. Now, it was revealed that the original Naruto anime will get brand-new episodes soon.
These upcoming episodes were revealed via the anime’s official website. And while there’s not a lot of info yet, these episodes promise to be brand-new, meaning they’ll likely be either original stories or remakes of certain episodes.
Naruto Anime 20th Anniversary Remake Video
If you ask any anime fan about the first series that they watched, chances are that many will mention Naruto, the iconic Shonen Jump series that began back in 2002.
The show wasn’t just a big hit in Japan, in fact, it might be one of the most popular anime internationally, as it was shown on TV on many networks around the world.
Because of how beloved it is globally, lots of fans were hyped to see the 20th-anniversary remake video that was released a few months ago.
This special tribute features the series’ iconic scenes which were remade by studio Pierrot.
The original Naruto anime ran continuously instead of being a seasonal show. This meant the quality sometimes dipped.
Because of this, fans were delighted to see the remake video, with many hoping an actual remake will be made.
Now though, while a full remake project hasn’t been mentioned, fans are still getting a treat, as new episodes that are part of the original anime are in the works.

The announcement was made just recently via an update on the official Naruto website.
There, it was mentioned that a new anime project will begin to celebrate the series’ 20th anniversary.
Specifically, there are four planned episodes that are part of this new project.
It’s not confirmed exactly what these episodes are, but it is confirmed to be a new thing.
Given how the announcement was worded, these four new episodes may feature anime-original content.
However, it’s also possible that these episodes will be remakes of pivotal Naruto scenes or even full episode remakes.
Whatever the case may be, Naruto fans will have something to look forward to in the latter part of the year.
This is a nice consolation given that Boruto will reportedly go on an extended hiatus soon.
