Animated show Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to get its own movie. Here’s what we know so far, including release date, cast, & story.
Despite its TV show being canceled after two underperforming seasons, theRise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtlesmovie is set to hit the big screen, and here’s what we know about it. The show was meant to have a third season, but after failing to draw in audiences and sell enough toys, Nickelodeon decided that it should be scrapped. However, it was later revealed that the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie would indeed return and be a continuation of the TV show.
Rise of the TMNT was a weak reboot and the fourth animated show about the crime-fighting turtles. The four brothers – Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelango – were revamped, receiving new looks, weapons and even mystical powers. After its mixed reviews, turning it into a Netflix movie perhaps comes as a bit of a surprise, especially with the number of inconsistent TMNT movies there have already been. The most recent was Batman Vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles which was released in 2019 to some good reviews. There have also been a number of live-action versions, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016), which received much a much worse reception.
