Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles gets first trailer


Nickelodeon has released the first trailer for their newest animated take on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The 26-episode 2D animated Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will debut later this year, and here’s the first teaser:

 

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reimagines the characters in a new way, featuring jagged-shelled Raphael as a snapping turtle, wielding twin tonfas as his weapons; Leonardo as a red-eared slider, using an ōdachi sword; Donatello as a soft-shell turtle, sporting a tech-bo staff and interchangeable battle shells; and Michelangelo as a box turtle, arming himself with a kusari-fundo. Along for the adventure is the Turtles’ most trusted ally, April O’Neil, a street savvy native New Yorker and Splinter, a mutated Russian blue dwarf rat father figure and sensei to the Turtles.

The series stars the voice talent of Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raphael, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Leonardo, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donatello, Brandon Mychal Smith (You’re The Worst) as Michelangelo, Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April O’Neil and Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Splinter. WWE Superstar John Cena lends his voice as villain, Baron Draxum, an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants.

The new series is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano (character designer, Samurai Jack) and Ant Ward (supervising producer, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) at Nickelodeon in Burbank. Veteran animation industry voice actor and Turtles alum Rob Paulsen is voice directing the series.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will launch later this year. In the mean time, fans can check out the official website from Nickelodeon.
