Weekly Shonen Jump has launched an online "countdown to the next generation" of Naruto.

The countdown's website features the Naruto logo, as well as several silhouettes of characters from the franchise.

The countdown is set to end at the conclusion of the Naruto stage event at Jump Festa on Dec. 19, where we assume we'll receive new information. The teaser seems to be hinting at a new manga or film starring the characters featured in Boruto: Naruto the Movie.

Creator Masashi Kishimoto ended his 15-year run on the original Naruto manga in 2014, and followed that up with the Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring one-shot sequel. He contributed character designs and worked on the script and as the chief production supervisor on Boruto.
