The film was made to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the franchise. This film is also the first film to be an official part of the Naruto storyline and is set between the last two chapters of the original manga series.


The film starts off with the explanation of Otsutsuki Kaguya consuming the chakra fruit, the birth of the Ten-Tails, the Sage of the Six Paths stopping the beast and creating the tailed beasts. Then, it moves forward over the fight between clans around Otsutsuki Asura and Otsutsuki Indra to Uchiha Madara and Senju Hashirama, and the end of the conflict between Naruto and Sasuke.

Before enrolling in the Ninja Academy, a young Hyuga Hinata is seen being bullied by boys over her Byakugan, calling her a monster, which causes her to cry. Then a young Uzumaki Naruto shows up and tells them to back off, proclaiming he'll be the future Hokage; however, the boys outnumber him and easily beat him up and destroy his red scarf. Hinata thanks Naruto for his efforts and Naruto lets her keep his scarf since it's ruined, unaware that this was when the young girl's affections began for Naruto. Sometime later at the Ninja Academy, Umino Iruka tells his students to write down the name of the person they would want to be with if the world was to end that day. Though Naruto tries to act tough towards Haruno Sakura, she ignores him for Uchiha Sasuke, as do most girls. Hinata is unsure who to write, and sees Naruto making a paper plane with his paper. As Naruto's paper plane flys out the window, Hinata watches Naruto being scolded by Iruka. Naruto states he has no friends or family, and the world isn't ending. Upon seeing this, Hinata happily writes Naruto's name on her paper.

In the present time, two years after the events of the Fourth Shinobi War, at an unknown location, Hyuga Hiashi and his guards are confronted by Otsutsuki Toneri, who asks him for his answer to an unknown proposition, stating the fate of the Hyuga Clan depends on his answer. Hiashi declines his offer and battles Toneri, only to be overwhelmed by his puppet army and trapped in a cave.

In Konoha, Naruto is invited to teach Ninja Academy Students taijutsu, much to the joy of the young boys. The lesson is interrupted by the crowd of young girls that greatly admire Naruto, much to his confusion. Yamanaka Ino and her team spot this, noting how popular he's gotten since the war. He has since then received various gifts from villagers from Konoha and abroad from young women smitten with him as the hero of the world. Later, Sarutobi Konohamaru meets with Naruto and wishes to take him to his late grandfather's old storage shed, claiming there is something for him.

Elsewhere in Konoha, Hinata is knitting a red scarf in remembrance of one Naruto used to wear back in the Ninja Academy, so she can give it to Naruto at the Rinne Festival as a personal gift of love when she confesses her love for him. She is later found by Sakura, who encourages her to give it to him and win his heart.

Meanwhile, Hatake Kakashi, Gaara, Terumī Mei, A, and Onoki, have an emergency meeting in regards to the threat of the moon, which is revealed to be falling out of orbit and onto the Earth. They deduce if nothing is done soon, then the moon will break apart and crash into the Earth and kill all life on the planet.

At night, Hinata finishes her gift for Naruto and attempts to give it to him, but her shyness stops her from doing so. Her little sister, Hyuga Hanabi, playfully encourages her to give it to him while warning her sister that there are various girls after him now as well. She meets Naruto, Sakura, Ino and Akimichi Choji at Ramen Ichiraku. Just as she sits down to eat, three kunoichi show up while one wraps her arms around his and another offers him food. After seeing this, Hinata decides to leave, and Sakura tries to stop and tells Naruto to walk her home. However, he doesn’t understand why he has to given Hinata’s powerful abilities, and Hinata leaves with Sakura chasing after her. Sakura tells Hinata that Naruto is very dense about love due to not having anyone in his life to express it for him and assures Hinata she'll be able to win him over if she’s confident enough.

Meanwhile, various puppets secretly invade Konoha, raid the Hyuga Estate and kidnap Hanabi. On the outskirts of the village, Sai, who has been painting a portrait and noticing the moon’s descent towards Earth, sees Hanabi’s captors flying overhead and gives chase. However, after a quick chase, the kidnappers shoot down Sai with a chakra blast.

Back in Konoha, in front of Naruto's home, Hinata practices her confession, but is interrupted by Naruto’s arrival. She then notices a scarf around his neck and after her stomach growls and Naruto's invitation to eat ramen in his apartment, an embarrassed Hinata runs off, much to Naruto's confusion. As Hinata sits on a park swing, she wonders who gave him the scarf and begins to cry uncontrollably, thinking he must be happy that way, and that she has lost her chance to be with Naruto. Just then, Toneri appears before Hinata, stating that he came for her. She is rendered unconscious by Toneri, who affirms the strength of her Hamura Chakra as Naruto shows up and gives chase. Naruto is able to save her from the puppet army, but the scarf she knitted is ripped as a result of her chakra being distorted. Toneri leaves a message that the end of mankind is approaching and he will return for Hinata. As he leaves, Naruto and Hinata witness a meteor crash outside the village.

After Hanabi's capture by Toneri, Naruto, Hinata, Sakura, Sai, and Nara Shikamaru are deployed by Kakashi to go and rescue Hanabi. Shikamaru is also given a special clock held only by the five Kage, which apparently is counting down to doomsday.

As the group follow Toneri's trail, courtesy of Sai, Hinata finds Hanabi's kunai and puts it in her bag where Naruto sees the ripped scarf. They eventually find a cave with a secret path towards Toneri's location. Hinata is unable to use her Byakugan due to the lake distorting her vision for an unknown reason. Naruto proceeds to make sure his scarf is not wet proclaiming it to be special to him, leading Sakura to state it can't be that important and Hinata will feel upset. Sai realizes that the water is incapable of making them wet.

They dive into the lake, only to discover it is a genjutsu set by Toneri. They are all trapped in their various own memories from the past. Naruto recalls his fight with Inuzuka Kiba in the Chunin Exams. Then Hinata's scarf begins to wrap around Naruto and her memories flood into his. Naruto then visits past thoughts once again, except he views it from Hinata’s perspective. Naruto views the earliest memory, the question when Naruto was in the ninja academy “Who would be the last person you would spend your days with, if the world were to be destroyed?”. He notices that Hinata wrote “Uzumaki Naruto”, he sees when Hinata gives him the medicine in the chunin exam as Kurenai says “She’s giving her medicine just to you!”, and another memory when Hinata overcame her shyness and tried to save him from Pain and ended her speech by saying “..Because I love You, Naruto!”.

The final flashback he views is a recent memory where he sees Sakura and Hinata talking after Hinata leaving Ichiraku, he notices that she wanted to give him something: her scarf, and this is when he realizes that Hinata has always loved him. Hinata and Sakura's talk about giving him her scarf. Naruto is left utterly bewildered by how much she's loved him for so long. All of these previous memories were genjutsu traps by Toneri, in which Sakura saves them all with her advanced powers of disarming genjutsu.

As the team all jump into the dry spring, Naruto shows how shy he is for the first time with Hinata then proceeds to jump into the dry spring. As they descend further, Hinata is found by Toneri who calls her the “Byakugan Princess” and announces his desire for them to be wed. Hinata refuses demanding the safe return of her sister. Toneri then reveals he has taken her sister’s Byakugan and if Hinata agrees to his proposal, he will spare both Hinata and Hanabi’s lives and, eventually, return Hanabi’s Byakugan. While Sakura, Sai and Shikamaru fight against The Gatekeeper of the spring, Naruto comes back to protect Hinata and fights Toneri only for the two to realize “Toneri” is a puppet. The puppet Toneri explains he will return in person to hear Hinata's answer. Now knowing Toneri is targeting Hinata, Naruto proclaims he will not let Hinata out of his sight, now having realized his own romantic feelings for her as well.

The team arrives outside the cave seeing an artificial sun inside the moon. They make their way to an abandoned shinobi village of the Otsutsuki clan. After taking Hanabi's Byakugan, Toneri remarks that they are incredibly “pure”, and implants them in his own empty eye sockets, awakening the Tenseigan sealed by Hamura's descendants over the last millennium. He tells his guards he will go after Hinata, but not till his eyes are adjusted. Later that night Naruto spies on Hinata making him a red scarf, thus he decides not to wear his current scarf since he felt bad about not realizing it sooner. The next day, Hinata notices Naruto isn't wearing his scarf anymore.

As Naruto and Hinata spend more time with each other, Naruto begins to slowly realize that he has fallen in love with Hinata and she remains humorously oblivious to his feelings. As they search the ruins, Shikamaru realizes Toneri’s plan and that he is the orchestrator of the falling moon. With Hinata’s arrival, a monument of the clan awakens for her revealing a puppet, calling her the “Byakugan Princess”, shows Hinata a vision only she can see of Hamura. Hamura awakens her latent Hamura chakra, transfers his own and orders her to stop Toneri as only she can destroy the Tenseigan as she is the “Byakugan Princess” and that Toneri, a member of the Otsutsuki’s Branch House, has misinterpreted his Celestial Decree. When Hinata awakens, she tells the others what she saw was “nothing”.

After the ordeal while everyone is in a separate room. Naruto decides to go speak with Hinata. Upon coming into her room he noticed that she's still working on the scarf, but he keeps this to himself. While getting Hinata's attention Naruto wants to ask her about something, but Hinata ignores it since she's working on a new red muffler for Naruto.

Later that night, Naruto follows Hinata to a pond, seeing her knit away at the scarf. Naruto consoles her when Hinata thinks she's a horrible big sister since she just knits a scarf rather than spending more energy to find her sister. Naruto disagrees, recounting the amount of time and energy she’s been putting into finding Hanabi. When Hinata thanks him for his reassuring kindness, Naruto accidently reveals his new found feelings for Hinata greatly shocking her. However, the tender moment is interrupted with Toneri’s arrival who Hinata freely goes with after giving the scarf to Naruto. Confused and heartbroken at Toneri’s declaration that Hinata is about to become his bride, he gives chase only to have his vast chakra drained and turned against him. The resulting explosion of Naruto’s vast chakra destroys a massive part of the Moon and destroys Hinata’s scarf yet again leaving her heartbroken at Toneri’s assault on Naruto forcing him to put her into a slumber.

Back on Earth, the various hidden villages defend themselves against the crashing meteorites as they protect civilians all over from Toneri’s genocidal assault. As Rock Lee and others fail to completely destroy a huge meteor, Sasuke arrives and saves Konoha from certain doom revealing he rescued Hiashi. Sasuke declares he’ll defend Konoha since Naruto is away and gives the Konoha ninja a much needed break. Elsewhere, as Naruto is being healed by Sakura, she notes his injuries are quite serious. Naruto mutters Hinata's name, and Sakura notes that he has finally realised his feelings for her.

Back on the moon at Toneri's palace, Toneri marvels at Hinata's beauty as she sleeps. Wanting to know more about her, he reads her mind only to see that she's only thinking about Naruto, much to his confusion and jealousy. When she awakens, she finds her sister safe but even while in her comatose state, Hanabi grabs Hinata silently begging for help. Toneri arrives and gives Hinata a vast army of puppet maids to do her bidding and gives her a tour of his palace. Here, Toneri tells her about his clan and how they used the Tenseigan against their enemies and, seeing mankind using Chakra as a weapon, he intends to wipe them out for as per Hamura’s Celestial Decree.

While sharing dinner, having tea and even showing the Mausoleum of Hamura with Hinata, Toneri request Hinata make him a scarf like she made Naruto and orders her to never question his plans to destroy Earth again. While Toneri rests from his inability to control the Tenseigan, Hinata attempts to destroy the Tenseigan by herself as per to Hamura’s request. However before she can destroy the Tenseigan, she is caught by Toneri's puppets. She fights off the puppets but she is stopped by Toneri. Angered by her “lies and betrayals” Toneri destroys her scarf in a jealous rage proclaiming he knew fully well she made it for “him”. He then proceeds to seal her soul into a portrait so her brainwashed body can still go through with their wedding.

After a three day recovery process, Naruto wakes up and becomes depressed about Hinata's choice, leading Shikamaru and Sai to scold and make fun of him in hopes of reigniting his drive only to fail. Shikamaru takes Naruto to Sakura revealing that she was severely weakened due to saving his life in hopes she can heal his heart (something he admits Sai and himself are nowhere near capable of). Sakura talks with Naruto and helps him realize that Hinata truly loves him, stating she noted the feelings he had for herself were just another way to compete with Sasuke but Naruto's feelings for Hinata are far more genuine and deeper than they ever were for herself and Hinata’s love for Naruto is far more genuine. With new-found strength, Naruto leads the charge into Toneri's moon base.

Naruto's team invades the palace and they split with Sai and Sakura going to rescue Hanabi, while Shikamaru and Naruto go after Hinata. As Shikamaru holds off Toneri's puppets, Naruto arrives just in time to disrupt the wedding angering Toneri. To humiliate Naruto, Toneri forces the brainwashed Hinata to attack him but he manages to remove the orb in her body. Annoyed with his constant interference, Toneri attacks Naruto but his latest Tenseigan pulsation allows Hinata to break free from Toneri and lead Naruto to the altar of the Tenseigan. With their combined effort, they are able to destroy the altar, revealing numerous Byakugan's sealed inside and halt the moon from plummeting to the Earth. After regrouping with everyone, Sakura presents Hinata with the remnants of her scarf, to which Naruto reveals he knows it was for him after seeing her memories. Despite being ruined, Naruto happily takes it, which leaves Hinata on the brink of tears of joy. Just then, Shikamaru notices the clock isn't stopping for some reason.

Back on Earth, A and Killer B use a massive chakra cannon to destroy the meteor's heading for Earth and upon learning of the moon still approaching, intends to use the cannon to destroy the moon. Kakashi is then told by Hiashi that he is certain that Toneri took his daughters to the moon and others announce they see Kurama battling on the moon confirming Hiashi’s theory. Despite now being informed that Naruto and his team are on the moon, A wishes to destroy the moon regardless. The other Kage are against this (angry that A once again has a weapon of mass destruction secretly hidden away) and order him to wait an hour as they feel Naruto can stop the moon given his actions during the previous war.

At the destroyed Tenseigan altar, Toneri, furious at Hinata and Naruto’s actions, has managed to unlock the Tenseigan, allowing him to continue his Celestial Decree. He summons a giant golem that battles with Kurama, and unlocks the Tenseigan Chakra Mode allowing him to capture Hinata and throw her into a cage so she can watch him kill Naruto who he has grown to despise, a huge duel ensues. Toneri reveals his newfound power to slice the moon in half. Near the end, Naruto grasps the last remaining shred of the scarf Hinata had made for him and seemingly redirects and channels his chakra shroud into his the scrap in his right fist and delivers a devastating punch, which is enough to depower Toneri and pin him against a wall. With his defeat Kurama uses this chance to destroy the statue with a Tailed Beast Ball and Hinata retrieves Hanabi's Byakugan. Despite his defeat, Toneri refuses to give up and summons all the Byakugan eyes around him to grant him power to kill Naruto by draining his chakra, but Hinata stops him from absorbing his Chakra any more. Toneri is unable to maintain his form and is about to burn in the sun until Naruto saves him.

With the hour up, A prepares to fire the cannon, but B refuses to kill Naruto and the others much to A’s frustration. Luckily, Kurama writes on the moon a "Mission Complete" symbol (much to the fox's annoyance as he admits his penmanship is terrible), signifying everyone safe and the disaster averted. A global declaration is made that Naruto, Hinata, Shikamaru, Sakura, and Sai have saved the planet from extinction.

Before returning to earth, Hinata takes Toneri to the sight of Hamura's soul and reveal the truth to him. Seeing this, Toneri apologizes for his actions and chooses to stay on the moon to atone for his sins and promises that “the moon will never approach Earth again” despite Hinata and Naruto offering Toneri a place on Earth. Later, Hinata asks Naruto about his scarf he was using earlier to which he reveals it was knitted by his late mother, Uzumaki Kushina for him before he was born, which is why he was so protective of it, leaving Hinata relieved and embarrassed for her actions. As they all head home on Hanabi’s request, Naruto proclaims to Hinata he wants to spend the rest of his life with her moving her to tears. As they leave through the portal they then see past memories of their childhood and life in green bubbles.

Then Hinata and Naruto are shown in the same hand held poses, as they begin to get younger through past memories with Naruto wearing the red scarf. From current Naruto and Hinata then Shippuden Naruto and Hinata, Pre Teen Naruto and Hinata and finally young Naruto and Hinata running hand in hand. Hinata falls but is caught by Naruto who tells her to grab a hold of him and not to let go, to which she happily states she never wants to. He uses a Rasengan to break him and her out of the dry spring cave. Then Naruto and Hinata fly out of the cave, leaving the others behind at the exit as they burst into the sky. While floating in the sky with the moon behind them, lean in and share their first kiss. The last words before the credits are of Naruto saying “Hinata…. Thank you.”

The movie ends with a series of flash-forwards of Naruto and Hinata's wedding. Naruto has his rose put on by Iruka, all of the males of the Konoha village are wearing suits and the females are all wearing Kimonos. Including picture of Sasuke continuing his journey. Then it further flash forwards to Naruto and Hinata having a peaceful morning with their two children, Uzumaki Boruto and Uzumaki Himawari who playfully order their father to play with them instigating the happy family into a snowball fight.
