Last month we posted about the Internet’s reaction to the new look of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Nickelodeon’s upcoming show. Now, the 26-episode Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series finally has a trailer. Surprisingly, the pizza-loving, half-shelled heroes don’t look half bad.
As you can see from the video below, the action scenes in Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are actually pretty slick and frenetic, with a lot of colour and bold lines. Maybe we were wrong. Maybe this new concept does work.
Of course, the art isn’t the only change the new series offers. There has also been a reshuffling amongst the team, with Raphael now as the leader and oldest brother. Also, if you look carefully, you’ll notice that each turtle is now represented by a different species and a very distinctive look. Josh Brener voices Donatello, a soft-shell turtle. Omar Miller voices Raphael, a snapping turtle. Brandon Mychal Smith is Michelangelo, a box turtle. Ben Schwartz stars as Leonardo, a red-eared slider.
