Paramount’s debut trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; Mutant Mayhem offers a look at the iconic franchise’s redesigned characters.
Producer Seth Rogen’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles offers new and detailed views at April O’Neil and Splinter, as well as Rocksteady and Bebop.
These images were taken from the first trailer for Mutant Mayhem. These stunning screenshots depict April O’Neil’s meeting in person with the Turtles. They also show Splinter’s new Jheri curl and a more stoic Rocksteady and Bebop. There have been many iterations, some of which were brought in after Nickelodeon purchased Nickelodeon’s franchise for $ 60 million back in 2009. However, the images reveal the full creativity of the forthcoming stylistically reimagined feature from Jeff Rowe (director) and Kyler Sparrow (writer). You can see the new images below.

But soon, an army of mutants takes over.
Who created TMNT Mutant Mayhem and who did it?
Seth Rogen acts as producer for the animated feature. His long-time writing partner and producer, Evan Goldberg, is also involved. Spears and Rowe take the helm of the new animated feature as relative newcomers. Spears had previously directed the animated film The Mitchells vs the Machines which was written by Evan Goldberg. Spears served as a storyboard art director. They worked on Brendan O’Brien’s screenplay Bad Neighbors and created Mutant Mayhem.
Many fans have taken to Twitter to express their appreciation for Mutant Mayhem’s initial trailer. They are praising its art style, character designs, and the realistic portrayal of half-shell heroes by the teens. Others have expressed concern about the absence from the official cast of Casey Jones, the fan-favorite vigilante. It is notable because the film’s cast list of characters seems deep into the franchise. It is not known if the character will make an appearance.
Fans can also look forward to seeing the Turtle clan on the big screen in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Mutant Mayhem hits theaters on August 4.
