Here's the character designs from the trailer, as best as I could get them.
The masked guy seems to be Naruto (the arm wrappings give it away). He's got unique markings around his eyes like for Sage Mode, and his cheek markings seem a bit different, too. Though... the symbol on the back of his jacket reminds me of the Sage of the Six Paths.
The other character... maybe Sakura's parent? I can't really tell if it's a man or a woman, but it looks like they're standing in front of Sakura in a protective way.
I wish the images were a bit clearer, I could maybe read the notes on the character design sheet.
Hinata looks like she changed places with Ino. Showing more skin and that confident grin is a lot more Ino-like. Sex kitten Hinata indeed. Now look at Ino. Her hair and outfit are different. She is now covered up and has almost a timid expression on her face. She is much more like Hinata.
The other weird thing is Shikamaru sticking his tongue out. That is usually a trait of a wild character like Kiba or Deidara. Kiba also looks more reserved for him. Perhaps he is now like Shikamaru.
It seems like this is some sort of AU where Naruto's parents lived and all of Konoha is different. Or maybe a genjutsu by Tobi. Whatever the case, Kishimoto looks to have created the most eagerly anticipated Naruto movie.
Sasori has an eye patch in that teaser trailer. That along side Kiba's markings and Hinita's attire, it does seem to support the theory of an alternate universe.
I'm not a
bigfan of alternative universe stories personally because they seem random to me. But if an alternative universe can give us a good Naruto movie finally, I can withhold my negativity.
Okay...Road to Ninja? Seriously? LOL
Well, Ino looks cool at least. I like the alterna-hairdo.
Sasori doesn't have an eyepatch in it. I paused right when he was on screen. The images of the Akatsuki members are just bits of stock character art that zoom past the camera. Nothing out of the ordinary about their designs.
Yeah I guess you're right now that I look at it on a bigger screen and longer than a split second.Originally Posted by Googlez_kun
I still see half his eye ball, I guess that black shit overlapping half of his eye threw me off. Must be beyond horrible shading.

It seems we have somewhat of a plot. But no real details.
A dozen years ago a huge monster called the 9 tails fox demon was unleashed by a mysterious masked man. The village of Konoiha was attacked by this monster and was on the verge of being destroyed. There was only one way to save the village. The Fourth Hokage Minato, together with his wife Kushina, sealed the demon into their son who was just born. Those two sacrificed their lives, and saved the village, entrusting its future to Naruto.
Some time went by until members of Akatsuki, a menacing group of terrorists, composed of Pain, Konan, Itachi, Kisame, Sasori, Deidara, Hidan, and Kakuzu, assaulted the village of Konoha. Naruto and his friends barely succeeded in stopping them. But just as the Konoha ninja are being praised for their victory, these Akatsuki members seem to return back from the dead . In the meantime, Naruto, who doesn't know his parents' face, can't help it to feel very lonely. Just around that time the masked man shows up in the village of Konoha. The mysterious new eye technique of this man then strikes both Naruto and Sakura.
Now, his terrifying ambition is revealed ! Is he targeting the 9 tails?
What will happen to Naruto Sakura, and their friends?
The fierce fight is inevitable! The conflict is at its climax !
Nothing just another garbage movie with 10 minutes of action and 50 of blablabla
