New TMNT Movie

Via @TheyreNotJustToys

We are getting a brand new TMNT Movie!!!

There has not been a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie that I did not like. While the original is the best and Secret of the Ooze is my favorite, I thoroughly enjoyed every single one of the other 4 films. Though I definitely see why so many were disappointed with the recent live-action attempts and probably why Nickelodeon and Point Grey Pictures are going the CGI route for their All-New TMNT movie The theatrical motion picture will be directed by Jeff Rowe and written by Brendan O’Brian.

I’m not at all sure how Seth Rogan, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver will be involved since they’re not credited as writing or directing. But I am excited and expecting Shrek-level humor to come out of it. Our EiC is less enthused, but I’m hyped. This is not the same movie as the 2D film of Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film set to release on Netflix. That’s pretty much all the important information, there’s not much else provided. We have no news on the cast, which iteration will be the inspiration, or a release date. We just know it’s happening. If you think there’s more, feel free to check out the official press release below:

BURBANK, Calif.-June 30, 2020-Nickelodeon and award-winning Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver are jointly announcing today that production will begin on an all-new CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theatrical motion picture. Marking the Nickelodeon Animation Studio’s first-ever CG theatrical production, in partnership with Ramsey Naito, Executive Vice President, Animation Production and Development, overseeing production for Nickelodeon. Josh Fagen is overseeing for Point Grey Pictures. Paramount Pictures will handle worldwide distribution of the film. 

 

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theatrical motion picture will be directed by Jeff Rowe (Gravity Falls, Connected, Disenchantment) and written by Brendan O’Brian (Neighbors, Sorority Rising, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates).

 

Said Brian Robbins, President, Kids & Family for ViacomCBS: “Adding Seth, Evan and James’ genius to the humor and action that’s already an integral part of TMNT is going to make this a next-level reinvention of the property. I’m looking forward to see what they do, and I know that Ramsey Naito and her team are excited to take the Nick Animation Studio into another great direction with their first-ever CG-animated theatrical.” 

 

Considered one of the most popular kids’ franchises, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a classic, global property created in 1984 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird.  It first debuted as a successful comic book series and then became a hit animated TV show, a live-action television series and later spawned numerous blockbuster theatrical releases. The property is a global consumer products powerhouse, winning in every category that has hit shelves to date—with toys, apparel, video games, DVDs and more—and generating billions of dollars at retail. 

 

Nickelodeon brought the franchise to life again in 2012 with the CG-animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and then reimagined the Heroes in a Half-Shell with the 2D-animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 2019.  As previously announced, as part of a separate deal, Nickelodeon and Netflix are partnering to produce an original animated 2D film based on the current Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.
