Nickelodeon To Bring Back Ninja Turtles, Make Us Whole Again

Thursday, March 10 by

This is what industry insiders refer to as a “teaser” trailer. Consider me teased. They’re all there! Monet, Picasso, Van Eyck, and Rembrandt. Man, those crazy turtles haven’t changed a bit! What’s that food they all went crazy for? That’s right. Beef stroganoff. I can’t believe I remember that after all these years!

Nickelodeon is rebooting the series (with a 2012 air date, per this teaser) with 26 all-new episodes, and fortunately, from the few images we see, it still looks pretty cartoon-y. Entertainment Weekly aslo suggests it will be “funnier and ninja-ier.” That’s all well and good, but can the promise that it will be the funniest, and/or ninja-iest? Only time will tell.

Not much else is known, nor can be conveyed. It appears that, after 20 or so years, they still live in New York City. They didn’t really strike me as the type to move to Greenwich after making it big, so it’s nice to see that I was right on that one. This series is so rife with nostalgic meaning to so many that you can bet your bottom dollar that we’ll see Shredder, Splinter, April O’Neil (the part Lindsay Lohan was born to play), Foot Soldiers, Krang, and the rest of the gang.

(Teaser here, because EW is too selfish to share)

Expect the dynamic of the group to stay the same, with Leonardo the leader, Donatello the brains, Michelangelo the party dude, and Raphael the hothead. I bet other entertainment reporters had to “do research” and “fact check” those roles. Not this guy. Not this guy.

    tmnt has been rebooted so many times now, it’s hard to get excited, but the artwork looks cool.
