No me gusta. The title makes it sound like it would focus on her origin and how it relates to the Kraang. That art direction looks kind of... simple?

Could still be cool though, I will assuredly be checking it out.

Pretty sure that's just fan art on her part.

Even though that is a drawing from one of TMNT's animators, my first thought was that it was just a fun doodle. There's a lot of them on Nasus's Twitter.

Actually, what if it's a series of shorts, like what 2003 did? And plays within commercial breaks or just randomly on Nick?

*runs here from Tumblr.* Ah, I see you all have gotten the news...

Yeah, it doesn't surprise me that there'd be a spinoff, though I always thought it'd be with more of a minor character. April is just too major. Personally, I was placing my money on Fugitoid. Think about it: Intergalactic scientist. Has his own space ship. Travels the galaxy. It'd be like an animated Doctor Who for a slightly younger audience. I could even see Mona Lisa being his companion/body guard. I have this feeling that Fugitoid isn't a capable fighter.

Still, my idea may not work depending on what direction the writers want to take Fugitoid. Apparently, Fugitoid is a walking atomic bomb, so something tells me a self-sacrifice might be in store for season 4. Plus, we don't know if Mr. Tennant would be available to provide the voice full-time. I'm sure the British Isles are keeping him busy.

Let's just hope this isn't some lame attempt to broaden the female demographic of the fandom. I seriously think more girls are into this show than guys.

Calm down, we hardly know anything about it. Don't judge a book by it's cover. Don't just say it's a bad idea when we have very little details on what it is.

There's this thing on this forum we have called spoiler tags and I recommend you use them.

What did I spoil? People already know Fugitoid and Mona Lisa are joining the show and I don't think the atom bomb thing was that much a spoiler.

It's still a spoiler and something I'd rather find out watching the show. You should have put it in spoilers since that info was leaked from a book.

Actually, the atom bomb part was never mentioned in the book. That was what they talked about at the SDCC panel and it was on his character sheet. But I get what you're saying and I'll try to be more careful.

Why do you overreact over nonsense? This is probably a one-off special like the Half-Shell Heroes thing airing in November. Its nice to see the show might have a bunch of spinoffs at certain points.

My personal best-case scenario: a live-action series in the vein of kids-oriented Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures. My personal worst case scenario: the current show, exactly, except starring April.
Sarah Jane Adventures was terrible. You'd actually want that?

Not sold on the art style at all.

That said, the idea of a short spin off examining her origins would be interesting - especially as it would add a level of depth to her character without pulling too much attention in the primary Nick show.

I think this will be an interesting one to keep an eye on

I would be interested if they keep the same animation for the main series but if they turn it into some cutesy 2D animated show then I will not be interested.

Once again, the artwork TigerClaw posted was fanart. Not what was in the actual news update.

That's a little comforting. As fan art, fine, works for that. If it had been design for a special/series...please no.

Well, to be fair... it IS art created by one of the show's animators.

TBF to TigerClaw, I kinda attribute that to how he tends to post something official. So when he posts something that looks straight out of Deviantart, tumblr, etc. people will confuse it as official.
