The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be next seen on the big screen in TMNT: Mutant Mayhem, which will release in August.
The beloved Mutant Ninja Turtles are returning to the big screen in the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, which will premiere in Finland on August 11. Animation director Jeff Lowe stated in an interview with Empire that he took inspiration from Stephen King among others for his film.
“We wanted it to be like Stand By Me and Lady Bird, but with ninja racers. They show that unapologetic confidence that teenagers have: When you’re a teenager, you don’t know things better, but You do it with an incredible ‘we can do it’ energy,” says Lowe.
Stand by Me, directed by Rob Reiner and released in 1986, is based on the Stephen King short story The Body. Lady Bird, on the other hand, is an authentic portrayal of teen angst directed by Greta Gerwig in 2017. Stand By Me – The Last Summer is currently streaming on See More, Lady Bird on Prime Video, HBO Max and Viaplay on Alyssa Wihde.
Micah Abbey, Shamon Brown Jr., Nicolas Cantu and Brady Nunn voice the racers in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem. Other voice actors include Rose Byrne, John Cena, Jackie Chan, Ice Cube, Natasia Demetriou, Ayo Adebiri, Giancarlo Esposito, Post Malone, Brady Nunn, Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Maya Rudolph.
The film was produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
