The brand new animated TMNT movie from producer Seth Rogen is titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, and the official teaser trailer has arrived this morning.
Mutant Mayhem will be unleashed in theaters on August 4, 2023, and this first trailer gives us a good idea of the art style and overall tone of Rogen’s take on the material.
The plot, you ask? “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.”
Micah Abbey, Shamon Brown Jr., Nicolas Cantu and Brady Noon will voice the roles of Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael, respectively. The cast also includes Jackie Chan as Splinter, Hannibal Buress as Genghis Frog, Rose Byrne as Leatherhead, John Cena as Rocksteady, Ice Cube as Superfly, Natasia Demetriou as Wingnut, Ayo Edebiri as April O’Neil, Giancarlo Esposito as Baxter Stockman, Post Malone as Ray Fillet, Paul Rudd as Mondo Gecko, Maya Rudolph as Cynthia Utrom, and Seth Rogen as Bebop.
Jeff Rowe (The Mitchells vs. the Machines) directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, which is produced by “The Boys” duo of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
Brendan O’Brien wrote the screenplay.
The new animated project is a co-production between Nickelodeon Animation Studio through their Nickelodeon Movies banner, Paramount Animation and Point Grey Pictures.
