Would 4 Kids-inspired films work?

Does anyone think it would work to have a TMNT film series, which instead of being directly Mirage-based, borrows a lot of plot elements from the 4 Kids series, whoch aired between 2003–2009?

I wouldn't really be opposed to it. We still see the influence of 4Kids' show 9 years after it ended, several of it's original characters are in use and there's just something about the writing style that seems to have stuck. Not to mention how lot Mirage Studios concepts seem to have been permanently filtered through it.

To me, it felt like that the 2007 film was inspired by the 4Kids series to a certain extent.

YES YES YES. hahaha I'd love to see some 4Kids storyline get taken to the next level. I.e. Ninja Tribunal? Fast Foward?

Its the cloest mirage adaptation we've got.. thus far. Except for maybe the first live action movie.

Yeah that definitely felt like an amalgamation of the 4Kids and also previous live action movies. It was probably purposefully vague...

I always felt the 2007 movie was like a big 4kids episode.

So ya it’d work fine. Lots of material you could use from the series.

Make shredder human, allow for a slightly darker story line and allows characters to be killed- and YES! This would be the best approach.

IDW is the best version of TMNT

If they make a TMNT reboot movie retelling the shredder battle/origin, I won't buy a ticket.

I'd rather see a film at least attempt to do Utrom Shredder "better". There's a way, 4Kids just did badly. It's part of the package of the 4Kids show.

Just avoid making him a Villain Sue...like the plague.
Give him some aspects to one-up on the Utroms - give them some areas of major "Woah guys, that's messed up, you're sure you're in the fight here?"
Let Karai put her foot down on Leonardo's "but your honor!" lectures; he should lose that one against her, if he's going to lose at anything.

Overall, just...tighten the leaks that 4Kids had.

It has pretty much been proven that it works since the original 1990 movie took a lot of inspiration from the Mirage comic and added some Fred Wolf in there.

So yeah, another question we could think about is if it would work best as live action movie, a classic 2D animated movie or a CG movie?

Do we know that the Turtles Forever movie did badly financially?

I would like to see them tackle a new CG movie. I mean live action can work but I'd rahter see them go full CG. Not doing it in the style of the 2012 cartoon but maybe find a nice balance between Mirage and the IDW comic.

That CG movie really flew under the radar. I mean, it was talked about for a while, but after its debut in cinemas... it's like it never existed. The general audience does not remember it at all. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the lowest grossing TMNT movie ever. Not to mention the fact tons of people didn't know there was a running TMNT cartoon at the time it came out and kept wondering "where are Bebop and Rocksteady? Why no Shredder?"

The Utroms should have been there. The Secret of the Ooze should have been about the mutagen's extraterrestrial origin, like it was supposed to.

I like the FW cartoon and I went to see the film but it's nothing like the FW film so word of mouth must have caught on. Simples.
