What if we got a period piece TMNT film that actually takes place in 1984?

You wouldn't have to adapt or modernize as much and focus on translating the storytelling of Mirage into something that works as a film. They could even use older film stock or digital effects to create a vintage look similar to those of Kung Fury or Black Dynamite. Like an adult oriented approach similar to Deadpool but with more grounded humor.

Then if they did more movies, a 'City at War" sequel/finale could take place in '92-'93.
