Q: Seth Rogen is producing a new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” What’s the plan for re-booting the series?

A: It’s animated, and it goes back to the roots of the Turtles. Seth and his producing partner Evan Goldberg were brilliant choices because no one can tell stories about being teenagers better than those guys. They’re passionate and super nerdy about the Turtles. It’s going to work for kids, parents, Gen Z-ers and Millennials. We have plans to do multiple animated movies this way, but one day we might go back to a hybrid live-action version of the Turtles.

Can't wait to see what they think the roots are...that probably totally isn't it. I mean, it was never even about them being teenagers, so that's already a poor start. (Viacom/Paramount/Nick, can you maybe stop handing the job of TMNT movies to man-children who never mentally outgrow being age 17?)

Its probably gonna be based on the 87 series.

You could argue the roots are the Mirage comics, But to the general public, It was the 87 series that put TMNT on the map.

It sucks but for a lot of people the 87 series IS the "roots" of the turtles. The Mirage comics is assumed as an early failed attempt, a false start.

That's their problem.

I think that's taking it a bit far. The comic was wildly successful, for what it was. That's why the cartoon was able to exist in the first place.

Although I agree that the 87 version is the widely recognized & celebrated one.

Unfortunately it's not too far from what some people tend to believe. I recently came across a Youtube commenter who thought Mirage only had a single issue and that it was meant to parody, get this, The Dark Knight Returns.

I have no idea why he didn't know Mirage volume 1 lasted 62 issues, even less why he thought it would be a parody of a comic that came out two years later. Both claims are extremely wrong and refuted with a google search. If I had to guess, these kinds of people don't really care enough to even check basic facts, which is really sad...

They dig for the roots, but ended up in a pile of compost.

For the ten or so people that were still insistent that they were still making the live action reboot that's pretty confirmation right there that it's dead in the water.

It really shows just how far the franchise has fallen that even Sonic The Hedgehog of all things can get a live action series but the best TMNT...a franchise that was once a pop culture juggernaut, had two pretty successful revivals and had a bunch of successful live action features can get is some crappy animated movie that hardly anyone cares about.

A successfull franchise cannot be successfull... forever. Stuff comes and goes, my friend. We better deal with it.

Not really? Since it was/is Platinum Dunes still on that and piped up about it again last year that Colin and Casey Jost were chosen to write it.

Granted that was last August so who knows what has happened between then and now. Maybe it stopped. Or... the writing part tends to be quiet, so who knows.

Yes, I'm sure they've been slaving hard over the script for 2 years.

Well since a potential PD film was last mentioned last August with the announcement of the Jost brothers supposedly being tapped to write... whether it's dead in the water or not, pretty sure 10 months does not equal 2 years.

This CGI one sounds like it's happening and we heard of it first when, around 2 years ago, maybe more? And we know practically nothing aside from a date and leaked art that may or may not be how it ultimately looks.

Only one I assume is legit dead is the prior script they supposedly had Andrew Dodge and Lindsey Beer writing.

It’s interesting that they even make a point to mention live-action. Clearly, it’s something on their minds.

True. In Italy the Mirage series was first published in 1993 but only the first 3 or 4 issues. A more proper release only came in 2007 or 2008.

I'm sure a lot of USA kids never heard about ninja turtles before 1987 as well.

Yeah, other than those kids who had the freedom to read/view things that were meant for older people and had access to Mirage, most US Turtlemania era fans were likely too young for the comic in Mirage's early years. Other than owning one collected volume of TMNT Adventures, I didn't grow up reading comics either, so it was a while before I knew of Mirage.

Mostly derivative of that Variety article:

https://www.looper.com/888156/seth-r...o4F_WuaqcaANoY

But apparently it will be the most teenaged teenager thing ever, by post-teenager people who know how to write for teenagers in the most teenaged ways ever.
