Naruto the Movie: Blood Prison (劇場版 NARUTO-ナルト- ブラッド・プリズン Gekijōban Naruto: Buraddo Purizun) is a 2011 Japanese animated film based on Masashi Kishimoto's manga and anime series. It was released in Japan on July 27, 2011, in North America on February 18, 2014 and in Indonesia on April 19, 2015. The theme song "Otakebi" is performed by Yusuke Kamiji.
Naruto Uzumaki is arrested and sent to Physalis Castle (鬼灯城 Hoozuki Jou) in the Hidden Grass Village, after he is mistakenly declared responsible for attacking the Fourth Raikage.
Mui (無為), the head of the prison, places the Sky Prison Control (天牢を使う Tenrou o Tsukau) seal on Naruto and limits his chakra. Spending a few days in jail, Naruto learns from ANBU member Ryūzetsu (竜舌) that Mui used Hot Water villager Kazan to frame Naruto, and Mui's son Muku (無垢) was sacrificed and sealed into the Box of Paradise ten years ago. During the prison riot, Mui uses Naruto's fox chakra to unlock the box, only for the resurrected Muku to be possessed by the demon Satori (悟り) and invade the castle. Naruto and his friends fail to defeat Satori, but Mui seals it within Muku with the formula. Muku reverts into a human, forgives the dying Mui and returns to the box. As the group recapture the survived prisoners, Ryūzetsu dies using Dragon Life Reincarnation to save Naruto. The heroes then interred her and Mui, and place the sealed box at sea.
Tsunade informs the team that Naruto's false arrest was rehearsed.
The film was released on DVD on April 25, 2012.
