To say that the newest reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is dividing fans is an understatement. There’s a good chance that the Comic-Con trailer for the show is only going to make that divide even wider. Nickelodeon is gambling pretty heavily with a totally new design aesthetic that has many asking why there are frogs running around with turtle shells. Add to that a lack of classic bad guys like Shredder (now replaced by a new villain who is voiced by John Cena), and it has gotten pretty dicey.
We haven’t been blown away by the animation yet, but we aren’t going to have a true sense of the show until we give it the standard three-episode probationary period. That’ll start when Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles airs a sneak peek on this Friday night at 9:30 on Nick!
The first OFFICIAL TRAILER for the brand new series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is here. Watch Raph, Leo, Donnie and Mikey as they use their new powers and weapons to take on a new group of mutant villains that are big, bad, and….from NEW JERSEY?! This one’s turtle-y action packed.
