Today Nickelodeon released the first trailer for the next incarnation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. These turtles are a bit younger, not as polished in their ninja skills and are not a cohesive team. It is a whole new look, lineup of their roles and more. This time around we have four different turtles. By different I mean the species for each turtle is distinct. I think that they picked great species to represent each turtle, especially for Raphael. He’s definitely a snapping turtle. My first thought on the new designs was that I wasn’t that impressed but the more I see them in action I like the look, especially Raphael. He’s my second favorite turtle but after this series, he may become my favorite. You can see the trailer below. Then below that is the full release from Nickelodeon.
I personally think that the 2012 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series is the best there has ever been. From the voice actors to the animation and the stories, these have been excellent cartoons. I did not know that the show was ending and today I learned that an All-New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series is coming. Where the 2012 series was very much honoring the past and paying homage to so much of the Turtles’ lore I am being cautiously optimistic about this next series. The voice cast is all new. I enjoy much of what each person in the cast does. the only person I am not familiar with is Kat Graham. The new show is called Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Did you know that that was also the titles of the first two episodes of the first season of the 2012 series? Strange.
the series is being directed by Rob Paulsen s voice directing the series. That at least is great news. Rob has so much experience with the Turtles in that he voiced Raphael in the original and Donatello in the 2012 series. So, I’m cautiously optimistic of this news. Read more about it below.
