What is the movie about?
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is an original story following the crime-fighting Ninja Turtles as they protect the sewers and streets of New York City. 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 (Edibiri) 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.
The film gets released on August 4, 2023, and the first teaser trailer will be released on Monday; Jeff Rowe (The Mitchells vs. the Machines) is directing.
“We are beyond thrilled by this world-class cast we’ve assembled to bring these iconic, beloved characters to life in a new chapter of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe,” said Nickelodeon Animation and Paramount Animation President Ramsey Naito in a statement. “This really sets a new bar for this globally celebrated franchise, and we can’t wait to show audiences this film.”
