Turtles Forever - The Direct to DVD 25th Anniversary Special

Anyone heard anything? Anyone, Bueller, Bueller? I mean seriously, it's May the actual factual 25th anniversary of the comic books and...not word one about this. Is there even still a DTV project?

all i wanna know is will it be a series finale or a stand alone movie

O yeah dan also said that it MIGHT be shown on 4kids tv before the dvd comes out

My guess: TMNT Multiverse, as hinted in the newest issue of Tales of the TMNT.

This could be the last time we see the 2k3 universe, as well as the last Turtle animation 4kids will work on.

It brings tears to my eyes thinking about it.

Unless they show it all at once, I'd rather the DVD come out before they air it. Hate when they air something meant to be one thing as parts.


Btw, isn't this the wrong section?

I just wished they would release a teaser picture or show a screenshot or something so we can know what art and animation style that will be used. DC, Marvel, GI Joe, even those Hellboy DTV movies always give something weather it be a clip or a picture either a screenshot or production art.

I'm just praying it doesn't look like Fast Forward or Back to the Sewer.

I agree, they should just give us something other than hearsay to talk about already.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles DTV details.
(DTV = Direct to DVD)
Peter Laird has released a bit of information on the upcoming TMNT DTV Movie on his blog:

"Given some of the unfounded rumors that have popped up in various places on the Web about the upcoming "animated movie" from 4Kids that Lloyd Goldfine made mention of in a recent interview, I feel compelled to clarify this one important point -- this "movie" is NOT just three more episodes added to the end of this current "Back to the Sewer" season. It is a completely separate project, intended from its conception as part of the 25th anniversary celebration. The reason it is being produced in three episode-length pieces is that doing so gives us more flexibility in how we show it. But it is all one story -- you can think of the three pieces as the three chapters in a three-chapter story.

While I am still not going to give a lot away at this point, I can say that this project may make a lot of fans quite happy, as it finally brings together the old and the new. And without being specific, I can also say that this project will also show fans the Turtles as they have never before been seen in animation. -- PL"

Agreed. But, as a slight consolation, Laird has stated a good while ago that this was created with broadcasting in mind. So, I expect it'll be more like a 3-part ep than say Batman: Mask of the Phantasm split into however many pieces.

The original idea was that there was going to be a direct-to-video release in celebration for the 25th anniversary, but it was going to be a faithful, animated adaptation of E&L's TMNT Vol. 1 #1. That idea was heavily modified, perhaps because it would have hurt 4Kids' image as being kid-friendly. So, now there are rumors that it will be a crossover between the classic and 2K3 cartooniverses (or something very similar). While there's less speculation about this particular idea, I fully expect this to include the Shredder Wars briefly seen in the first episode of Back to the Sewer.

The thing I'm probably most curious about this DTV is what kind of animation style it's going to have. I highly, highly doubt we'll get the BTTS look, and Laird said it's the Turtles in a way we haven't seen before, so I'm thinking we may get a whole new look here.

So it'll have "characters from the past clashing with characters from the present," and according to Goldfine it's the favorite part of the 2K3 universe that he's worked on (this may be just to build hype, but still).

The whole project is very exciting to think about, but it sure would be nice to be tossed another bone.

Well, more specifically, the plan is to air the three episodes on the CW4Kids, so the content has to fit those restrictions accordingly. Nothing harsher than what we saw in the first few seasons of the 2K3 series I'd imagine.
