The live-action Naruto stage musical has now crossed into Shippuden’s story for its third run! And after revealing the leads, as well as the Akatsuki and Hebi members, the Live Spectacle Naruto: The Akatsuki Investigation play has now revealed even more characters in costume.
Yui Itou as Sakura Haruno
Yuuki Kimisawa as Kakashi Hatake
Rei Fujita as Captain Yamato
Ryou Kitamura as Sai
Seshiru Daigo as Tsunade
Hiro Yuumi as Orochimaru
Ryousuke Okada as Kabuto Yakushi
Koudai Matsuoka and Ryuuji Satou are also reprising their roles as Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha respectively. Meanwhile, Shinji Rachi is joining the play for the very first time as Itachi. However, actor Ryousuke Okada is replacing Tatsunari Kimura as Kabuto Yakushi for the play.
The first stage play run also included stops in Macau, Malaysia, and right here in Singapore. Unlike the first two runs, the play will feature a different story, this time it would center around Akatsuki. In other words, the play would now shift to the story of the early part of Naruto Shippuden.
The website has also revealed that this new play will begin its run starting May 2017. However, they still haven’t announced if they will be going on tour outside of Japan, just like when they visited Singapore for the first run.
