Hi! I am the Managing Editor for Nerdbot.com I enjoy watching anime, learning about new things and keeping up with Nerd Culture. I love writing and hope to introduce people to things that they may not have known about before through my articles.

If you had the chance to go to Comic Con this year you may have had the opportunity to see the new Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer. If you didn’t or you missed it, because lets face it there is a lot to overwhelm the senses at Comic Con, here it is.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles premieres Monday, Sept. 17. In the half-hour launch episode, “Mystic Mayhem,” the Turtles discover for the first time that they’re not the weirdest things in New York. Though the series is not set to debut until this fall you can watch the first five episodes right now if you have the Nick app.

I was able to watch the first episode and from what I can tell this will be a fun and fast paced show. The art style is clean while at the same time more so reflecting the comic book art. They brought back a remixed version of the original theme song for the theme of this show!

Nickelodeons site tells us:

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles follows Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo on all-new adventures as they seek to unlock the mystical secrets of New York City. From the tallest skyscraper to the dankest sewer drain, the Turtles will encounter absurd new mutants and battle bizarre creatures all while enjoying their favorite slice of pizza. Tapping into mystic, ninja powers they never knew existed, the four brothers must learn to work together and navigate the perils of the modern age and hidden realms in order to fulfill their destiny to become a team of heroes.”

Andy Suriano is the executive producer on the show and you may know him from his contributions to the character designs in Samurai Jack. He will be working alongside Ant Ward who is the supervising producer for the previous reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and helped make that show so successful.

The cast is nothing short of extraordinary crediting:

Kat Graham as April O’Neil

Josh Brener as Donnie

Ben Schwartz as Leo

Brandon Mychal Smith as Mikey

Omar Benson Miller as Ralph

Eric Bauza as Splinter

John Cena as Draxum

…and more recently announced

Johnny Rotten as “Meat Sweats”

I am curious to see how the general reaction to the change in style will go over since we have had so many adaptation. Especially that of April O’Neil which you can read about in our article about fictional characters that won’t stop changing. In my opinion they are trying to grow up the characters with the new fan base. Kids who have started watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the 2012 generation of the show.

Kids will be graduating from this..

To THIS!

I am personally excited to see this new telling of the characters come to life again. I will be keeping you all updated on any news regarding anything Nickelodeon from now on so stay tuned and don’t touch that dial!

Are you excited to see the Turtles back in another incarnation? Tell NerdBot in the comments!
