''Naruto: The Legend of the Stone of Gelel'' is the second ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'' movie of the franchise, released in 2005 and meant to take place after Episode 160.

The film begins with an attack by a mysterious knights on the Sand Kingdom though Gaara manages to ward them off. Elsewhere Naruto, Sakura and Shikamaru are on a simple catch and retrieve mission to bring back a ferret to its owner. However en route, the same knights attack the trio with Naruto himself taking on the leader, Temujin. Their battle winds up knocking both of them off a cliff and getting picked up by a caravan of people seeking a new homeland. Eventually Temujin head back to his boss, Haido, who is hoping to find the mysterious Gelel Stone so he can create a utopia. Of course, all isn't what it seems and the stone's power could lead to widespread destruction if Naruto and his friends don't stop it.
