Can it be? Are we going to see a successful Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles story line!? The fan base seems to be slowly crawling back into the sewers for the disappointing attempt of live action films from Paramount Pictures. Yes, all in all the movies may have made some money from the first TMNT having a budget of 125 million dollars, and grossed 493.3 million dollars. While the second TMNT: Out from the Shadows budget was 135 million dollars, and grossed 245.6 million a serious decrease.
For the fans sake… I would love to see a fun loving, true to the story, and successful Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creation. Thankfully Nickelodeon announced Rise of the Teenage Mutant Turtles 2D animated series. The series is set to premiere in fall of 2018 and the show will have 26 episodes total. The two Gentelman taking on this series will be Andy Suriano(Samurai Jack Character Designer), and Any Ward (Supervising Producer on the current Teenage Mutant Turtles series).
IGN writer Alex Gilyadov reported “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Turtles will expand the mythology of the Ninja Turtles by featuring new villains and a “more mystical New York City,” as the four protagonists discover a magical world beneath the city’s streets while also gaining strange new mystical ninja powers.” The description for the series definitely brings some new light to the franchise, and it will be a very exciting wait to see a new crew begin the story of the Teenage Mutant Turtles.
