Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may have fizzled out in the box office, but Seth Rogen is ready to give the Heroes in a Half Shell a whole new revamp with the animated TMNT: Mutant Mayhem. Just in, we have a new trailer, and it gives us a look at a new take on Leo, Don, Raph, and Mikey.
The official description reads:
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.
With Rise of the TMNT having some clear influence from anime, it looks like Mutant Mayhem is going to be embracing the stylized comic book appearance that was made popular by Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Though the Shredder is usually the antagonist for every new batch of turtles, it looks like the gang is going to be taking on other mutants like themselves, including Bebop and Rocksteady, as well as a bunch of other weirdos voiced by a star-studded cast which includes Paul Rudd, Maya Rudolph, Seth Rogen, John Cena, Hannibal Buress and more.
Did I also forget to mention that Jackie Chan is going to be Master Splinter? This movie is going to be off the hook.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem comes to theaters on Aug. 4.
