After announcing the all-star voice cast last Saturday, Nickelodeon has released the first trailer for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem CG-animated film.
As you can see from the Mutant Mayhem trailer, the look and feel of this new TMNT CG-animated film is clearly influenced by the Sony Animation Spider-Verse films. While the Michael Bay produced live-action TMNT films left a sour taste, the reactions are overwhelmingly positive.
Here’s how Nickelodeon describes the film:
In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, after years of being sheltered from the human world, the Turtle brothers set out to win the hearts of New Yorkers and be accepted as normal teenagers through heroic acts. Their new friend April O’Neil helps them take on a mysterious crime syndicate, but they soon get in over their heads when an army of mutants is unleashed upon them.
Nickelodeon Movies and award-winning Point Grey Productions’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver are producing the all-new iteration. The film marks Nickelodeon’s first-ever CG-animated theatrical production, in partnership with Naito and Jason McConnell, who are overseeing production for Nickelodeon. For Point Grey, Lukas Williams is co-producing and Josh Fagen is overseeing. Paramount Pictures will handle worldwide distribution of the film, which is slated to hit theaters August 4, 2023.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is directed by Jeff Rowe (The Mitchells vs. the Machines, Gravity Falls, Disenchantment).
