A Live Action Series?

Not sure if I put this in the right place, so please move it if needed.

Saw this pop up on Tumblr.



Apparently Ciro announced at the panel that there is going to be a Live Action Series with the original 2012 voice cast.

Don't tug at my heartstrings.

I don't wanna get hope until I'm absolutely sure this is not some misunderstanding, or an idea that will never come to fruition.

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.

I was told that Ciro was just throwing out an idea for a cool Netflix show. (would like that too Ciro)
No announcements so that would sound about right.
Gasped when I first saw it though.

Ah, so it was just an idea, damn I thought it was official.

Sorry guys.

So I've seen someone comment anyway (not sure if they were are the SDCC). Don't know for sure myself but is seems to make sense. Course I would have liked it to be true, if he wanted to just call it 'Turtles' that might have meant a little older too.

I think Ciro is working on something else but not sure what it is.

This was quite a pleasant surprise. Granted, I know itís not official, nor did I personally go to ComicCon to be able to confirm this rumor or not, but hopefully it is true, given that, in some ways, I prefer Ciroís direction with the franchise. It would also give reason for him to be there, given the 2012 series is over.

There was also an interview with Bobby Herbeck that worked on the original movies that said they were working with Viacom to try and get a tv series made that went back to the original movie designs or something like that so there might be something to what Ciro said.

I just wish Ciro can make a CG movie based on the 2012 series direct to DVD/blu-ray. The show ended a few years ago now, it's the perfect time to revisit it for a movie taking place after the series ended (well before the timeskip of the last 3 eps, I guess)

The comment section goes to show just how stupid people in this fandom are.

I donít follow you there, but then, I only managed the courage to look at a small number of the most popular comments. Either way, I think we need to remember that itís also a problem with YouTubeís community in general: Iím taking a hiatus from uploading my music there for that reason.

Well, given that a wish for a live action Netflix series has been floated around here before, it's nice to see at least one 'official' TMNT person would also support such a thing. Even if actors have no say in things actually happening or not. (Though I'd definitely want the Turtles to be and sound older than in 2012).

Yeah, if the interest is big enough then a live action might be considered in some form at some point, won't hold my breath for the time being though.

So far as this, had it been an actual thing and the VA's were even available and willing, they could just do a lightly older voice (if the characters were a little older) they aren't teens after all.
Hoon Lee of course would be just fine as we've heard him.

If we got a live action series, the voice actors from the '87 cartoon should voice them.

I disagree. As much as some people love the 87 show, those cartoonish voices would be very jarring for live action

None of the previous cartoon voice actors would really be a good fit IMO.

Do we actually think something live action would work today? The charm in those movies was off the charts. But that was nearly 30 years ago. I just canít see it happening, although Iím not knowledgable at all with what the creators would be able to do with todayís technology.

Believable enough mocap CGI would probably be the better option, but that likely high budget though...eek.
