Meanwhile, Naruto’s original voice actor, Junko Takeuchi and Boruto Voice Actor Yuko Sanpei had this to say about the New Arc:

“Wow! Child Boruto meets and talks with Child Naruto! Boruto is smart, while Naruto’s unpredictability is No.1. What kind of relationship will the two build? Don’t miss it. ^_^”

Junko Takeuchi

“It is a so exciting new story development, like not jut one, but many dreams come true. I can’t wait to see how you react when it is aired. We have become so passionate in voice recording sessions without thinking. Please be excited about it.”

Yuko Sanpei

“The anime staff have sincerely answered to my crazy idea, ‘It must be exciting if Boruto and Naruo in his childhood meet.’ In addition to Boruto, Naruto, and Sasuke, I have heard that other familiar characters will also return! Please enjoy watching this festival!” ~Masashi Kishimoto
