If you could make a TMNT 1990 Special Edition

In the same vein of how the Star Wars Special Edition came to be, what kind of adjustments would you make?

This means you can add CGI, add deleted scenes, make small audio adjustments, stuff like that.

You want all red bandanas? Go nuts.
Blood? Make it rain.

Just curious what you guys would do, if anything at all.

Off the top of my head...

-Tighten up some lip syncing.
-Add blinking eyes.
-New orchestral score. I love John Du Prez’s score, don’t get me wrong, but I wouldn’t mind hearing something a bit more timeless as an alternative.
-Add blood where appropriate (Leo slices some guys pretty good in the movie)
-Re-add the scene where Shredder fights the foot soldiers.
-Re-add the scene of Mikey unable to cope with Splinters disappearance.
-Add a CG wide shot of the fight on the streets before the rooftop showdown to show the scope of the action.

This one ventures more into a fan-edit than anything but I’d like to keep Shredder completely mute until “Ah, the RAT! So it has a name. …It had a name.” I like the idea of Shredder being this imposing SOB who enters the roman without saying a word everyone goes silent.

Thats… about it, really.

Insert the following scenes.

Casey helping Raph walk around the house after his beatdown.

Casey and April come back from the grocery store.

Extended blindfold fight scene where Leo teaches them how to fight blind folded.

Raph finally learns how to fight blind folded in the barn.

Casey falling down the well.

Raph and Casey extended chase.

Extended apartment fight

Unconscious Raph being escorted to the van.

Extended angry Mikey barn scene.

Donnie upset barn scene.

There might be more so put them all in or have them on the Blu-ray as deleted scenes.

* Digitally make all the bandannas red.
* CGI blinking eyes.
* CGI some better lip movement in places.
* With CGI, digitally construct some actual impact to the weapons fighting. Quick shots of Leonardo slashing down Foot, etc., with digital blood.
* Extended/deleted barn stuff.

That's all that comes to mind, really, in terms of what could be done to it without massively ripping it apart or fundamentally changing it.

Oof, most of these sound awesome. The movie has a great foundation, but really could use some tightening, added scenes, and yes, blood. I probably wouldn't alter the musical score unless I had something really interesting in mind though.

Pull up Leo's plastron.
Seriously, it looks like it's falling down like a bridemaid's strapless dress after the open bar portion of a wedding reception.

I'd add in Shredder fight the Foot, restore Tatsu killing that kid and add Mikey's voice to the barn roof scene.

And Of course "all red feature", same movie but the masks are recolored red.

I don't think redoing the lipsynching and adding eye blinking would add much to the movie. Too good lipsynching can make things look odd and off putting.

And add as much as possible to bonus features, original trailer before the voice actors where in, deleted scenes, interviews and bts videos/photos.

Nothing, leave it as was.
Because the crossovers doing nothing else than messing up the timeline and other stuff of the 1987-1996 series, I've given up writing fanfiction about it. Instead, I'm trying to reboot the TMNT as many other fanfiction writers do:

Hopefully, stories will later appear at

I wouldn't EDIT the actual film in any way except to maybe add the supposed deleted scenes with Mikey in the barn etc and to darken or erase those areas where the turtle actor's faces are visible. I would add the nonexistent 2 hour documentary on the making of the film that needs to happen, the Steve Barron commentary on the German release and probably just a trailer and actor bios. Maybe include a few key issues of Mirage on a second disc that directly inspired or made it into the film.
