Seth Rogen announced in 2020 that he was producing a new animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and today, Paramount Pictures released the first trailer for it…and it looks great!
What’s especially notable about this trailer is the animation style, which is quite unique for both the TMNT franchise and animation in general. It’s reminiscent of stop-motion mixed in with the comic-style vibes of Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse, although it’s also very much its own thing.
Check it out for yourself below in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem trailer below:
As you can see, the movie is clearly harkening back to the comic book origins of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with its visual style, and the action looks great. The voice cast is great, too, although that’s not surprising considering how stacked the cast is.
Here’s who you can expect to hear in the movie:
- Brady Noon – Raphael
- Micah Abbey – Donatello
- Nicolas Cantu – Leonardo
- Shamon Brown Jr. – Michelangelo
- Jackie Chan – Splinter
- Eyo Edebiri – April O’Neil

- Hannibal Buress – Genghis Frog
- Rose Byrne – Leatherhead

“In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, after years of being sheltered from the human world, the Turtle brothers set out to win the hearts of New Yorkers and be accepted as normal teenagers through heroic acts,” the trailer’s description reads. “Their new friend April O’Neil helps them take on a mysterious crime syndicate, but they soon get in over their heads when an army of mutants is unleashed upon them.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem hits theaters August 4, 2023.
