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 into the criminal containment facility called the Hoozuki Jou (鬼灯城?, lit. "Physalis Castle") in the Hidden Grass Village, after he is mistakenly declared responsible for attacking the Fourth Raikage at the Hidden Cloud Village.
There, Mui (無為?), the head of the prison, places the Tenrou o Tsukau (天牢を使う?, lit. "Sky Prison Control") seal on Naruto and limits his chakra. That night, Naruto uses a clone as a decoy to escape from prison, but Mui secretly takes his clone to have the Nine-tailed beast's chakra extracted which leads him to the real Naruto, and he is recaptured and placed in solitary confinement, before delaying Mui's plan. During his time in prison, Naruto meets and befriends Ryuzetsu (竜舌?), a female ninja in the Hidden Grass Village, who explains that Mui used Kazan from the Hot Water Village to frame Naruto and Mui kept the Box of Enlightenment for any wishes. Ryuzetsu plans to avenge her childhood friend and Mui's son Muku (無垢?), who was sacrificed and sealed into the box ten years ago. Naruto decides to work together with her. They initiate a prison riot to distract the guards. At the laboratory, Mui extracts the Nine-Tails chakra within Naruto to unlock the box. Mui opens the box to resurrect and release Muku from it, before being possessed by the demon, Satori (悟り?). He attacks his father, transforms into a monster and goes on a rampage. Naruto fails to defeat it in Sage Mode, but is assisted by his friends in the Leaf Village and Killer Bee. Naruto and Ryuzetsu help Mui recover to seal Satori within Muku with the Tenrou. Muku, reverting to his human form, forgives the dying Mui and returns to the box. As Killer Bee and the leaf ninjas recapture the survived prisoners who are free from the Tenrou, Ryuzetsu dies using a life transferring technique to save Naruto.
After placing the box into the sea and burying Mui and Ryuzetsu, Naruto and allies return home. Tsunade informs the team that Naruto's false arrest was rehearsed.
The film was released on DVD on April 25, 2012.
