Nickelodeon Announces Release Date for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Nickelodeon has just sent out a press release announcing the premiere date of their uch awaited CG-animated refresh of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. The premiere date is scheduled for September 29, 2012. The premiere will be marked by a 1 hour special event starting at 11 AM.
The 26 x 30 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series will feature a star studded cast that includes Jason Biggs (American Pie) as Leonardo, Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings) as Raphael, Greg Cipes (Teen Titans) as Michelangelo and Rob Paulsen (Planet Sheen) as Donatello. Paulsen also voiced the original Raphael from 1987-1996 in the very first TMNT series.
Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a reboot of the franchise, but will not be as drastic as the recently shut down (and much maligned) Michael Bay reboot. The series will follow the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as they emerge from their hidden lair in the sewers for the very first time, ready to confront the wondrous and hostile world of New York City and face enemies more dangerous and pizza more delicious than anything they could have imagined. Funnier and with more Ninjutsu than ever before, the show will explore the companionship of four teenage brothers learning to rely on themselves and one another as they unravel the mystery of their existence and grow to become the heroes in a half-shell that they are destined to be.
