Cowabunga! Ninja Turtles - Some of my favourite childhood superheroes will be making it to the big screen next year! TMNT movie will be the first all CG-animated movie in the history of the franchise. (CG = computer graphics)

Strange events are accouring in New York City, and the Turtles are need more than ever, but Raphael, Donatello, and Michaelangelo have become lost and directionless. With the city at stake, it's up to Leonardo and Zen Master Splinter to restore unity and ninja discipline to the Turtles.


Apple has just launched the new teaser trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Watch it at the official website!

Leonardo


Last year, Kevin Munroe has been signed to write and direct a new CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. Kevin is best known for his animation work for video games, television series, and comic books for Disney, Warner Bros., the Cartoon Network, WWE, Fox Kids, The Henson Company, Kids WB, Dark Horse Entertainment, IDW Publishing, and Nickelodeon. He developed the screenplay in consultation with Turtles comic book co-creator Peter Laird.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have enjoyed over 20 years of success in the U.S. and around the globe from their TV series, films, toys, and comic books.

Raphael

  • Recently, Kevin Munroe was present at the Comic-Con in San Diego and revealed five minutes of footage from the anticipated film, which is set after the second live action movie.

  • He said that the film will feature hidden jokes from the comics and animated series.

  • Splinter will be voiced by Japanese actor Mako. The other voices will be announced in a month, but they are not-so well known celbrities.

  • Shredder is not the villain in the story, though he does make an appearence, which might set up the conflict for the sequel. What a disappointment! He's the coolest TMNT villain ever! :(

  • Expect Casey Jones and April to develop a relationship.

  • Marco Beltrami is doing the score, and they are looking to create a "theme" for the Turtles CG movies, something memorable like the "Batman" theme.

  • One of the scenes shown features a turtle dressed up for a kids party, and the kids beat him up, with one of the little girl kicking him in the balls. Alot of action scenes were also shown, like the Turtles on skateboard, hang gliders, etc.

  • The movie features a bat character and a female ninja chracter.

  • There is a human villain, who may or may not be named Winter.

Donatello

Warner Bros. Pictures will handle domestic distribution of the first all-CGI-animated film in the popular "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" franchise, while The Weinstein Company will take international territories. An overseas release date have not been announced so far. Hopefully TNMT will be released in Malaysia theatres coz I'm itching with curiosity!

Michaelangelo

"'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' represents a brand that is widely recognized all around the world, and we think this new CG version will be a huge hit among audiences everywhere," said TWC co-chair Harvey Weinstein, who made the announcement with Warner Bros. Pictures president of distribution Dan Fellman.
