Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie may have just premiered on Netflix, but Seth Rogen is set to make a reboot of the Turtles that is set to hit theaters.
We’ve had rumors about the film for a while, but Rogen has now officially announced the title and release date. Check out the promo for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem which is set to come out August 04, 2023.

We don’t have any official details on the story, but last year, Rogen did give us a unique teaser in the form of a page from Leonardo’s notebook:

Not only does it inform on the character of the teenage Leonardo, but we also have confirmation of April O’Neil as a character, plus a classification of mutants.
With TMNT being a kids’ franchise, we should expect a reboot every few years—the same with characters like Batman or Ben 10. While I am excited for Rogen’s take on the Heroes in a Half Shell, I do suggest that fans check out Rise of the TMNT, which has some great animation, and a very unique take on the Turtles, with them having some swapped out weapons as well as mystical powers.
We don’t know exactly how Rogen plans to embrace his versions of Mikey, Leo, Donny, and Raph, but I’m always eager for a special twist to the classic Turtle formula.
