TMNT wishlist for the 2020's

With the Christmas and holiday season being around us, I think it's time to ask:

What would you like to see, TMNT-wise, for the upcoming decade. I'm not talking about Christmas gifts, but productions or events you would like to happen.

It can be a comic series, a cartoon or live-action television series, an action figure series, a film or film series. It can also be a purchase of the franchise, the return of some characters you like, or something else.
Because of continuity and timeline errors, I've given up writing fanfiction based on the 1987-1996 animated television series. Instead, I'm trying to reboot the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles story, something many other fanfiction writers already do:

Hopefully, stories will later appear at

A live action film with properly grounded grit that has the tone (but not necessarily the same content) of Mirage. Start with street level stuff, then go into space & time travel in future installments. No Fred Wolf stuff.

An anime adaption. Something entirely unique yet inherently Japanese. Go nuts with tokusatsu influence.

New comics that pick up where other things left off. For example, continue the 1987 cartoon or original film series in comic form.

Collectibles based on Mirage, IDW, Archie, specifically, figures which resemble the art style of artists synonymous for illustrating them. Deluxe toys of Rise, 4kids, Next Mutation, would be great.

Overall, for new iterations, I want new material. Things that deviate from the norm & don't recycle old characters/plots, like Super Mutant Turtles Legend, Rise, TNM, Souls Winter. Whatever comes, let it be refreshing. Other than that, a proper Eastman & Laird collaboration AND Vol. 3 finisher are both due in the near future, so that's two fantastic things I need not list!

We’re obviously not getting a new cartoon or movie in 2020 so there’s no point to wish for that. Rise will continue airing its second season and any movie is far off to 2022 at the earliest.

IDW will continue along as usual. We’re getting the official Image conclusion with 3 new issues so there’s that. Post issue 100 I don’t really care about so much but we’ll see where it goes.

I do think we’ll get a sequel to the Batman/TMNT cartoon crossover movie. Hopefully the sequel is better than the comic sequel.

Eastman and Laird reuniting for The Last Ronin is hard to top.

I'd love something aimed at me, in a visual medium. An adult animation or a movie I can really get behind. Something bold and daring, but takes influence from Mirage. That's something I've been waiting for a long time, so an announcement would be incredible.

That's all I really want - The kick-ass TMNT feature film that we all know could exist in the right hands. I want for the potential of the franchise to be fulfilled on the big-screen and to watch the volcanic eruption that envelops the franchise afterwards. A seismic shake-up. Blockbuster films have that power.

If we do get a new animated adult series I hope someone like Tradd Moore or James Stokoe is the character designers and have either the animation team from Rise or the animation team for Primal(Including Genndy Tartakovsky) also I want a liberal adaption of the IDW series as in take some influence from that but don't be afraid to change a few things.

Another thing is that I want a good TMNT game, the one from Plantium was alright but something like Sekiro's combat, Batman's Predator system, Spider-man's Traversal system, and Yakuza style mini games and boom there goes your perfect TMNT game.

Any of the following, a decent movie (sequel if it is good), Netflix series, another animated series.

Of course I woud love to see my favourites again in a DVD special, this is the least likely thing out of all I think would happen.

One thing I'd like to see is an animated theatrical film, something we haven't gotten since 2007.

Honestly, the franchise lends itself really well to animation, and there is so much untapped potential in terms of story and characters.

What they could do without being held back is my question.
Shredder could've done more than blow up the Channel Six building.
I don't mean as far as murdering Splinter, but think of the possibilities if censors were not an issue.
Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

Rise get officially cancelled
a non stinky Turtles movie that is actually good. (not counting the good first 90's one)
a new adult cartoon.

I respect what FW cartoon did for the turtles franchise but it is the most overrated and hard to watch of the 3 turtles cartoons.

Rise must become as serious as the 2003 or 2012 series are also i will kill the turtles and in the next movie i will escape from the technodrome and kill Krang! Fot 2020 the only big thing that might happen is the next live action movie. There will not be another tv series so soon. As all tv series have reached 5 seasons dont expect rise to stop until it also reaches at least 5 seasons if not more but as i said it must become as serious as the 2003 and 2012 series until then.

I've enjoyed some of the more recent games more than most people - Out of the Shadows and the Platinum one, anyway, the Nick ones are kinda crummy - but I'd love a really, really good video game.

Anything else seems too unrealistic to even hope for.
