The shell-slinging heroes of New York City are back in the newly released trailer for “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem,” set to hit theaters on August 2, 2023. Directed by Jeff Rowe and Kyler Spears, and written by Seth Rogen, the film reinvents the beloved characters Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Raphael for a fresh generation of fans.
Micah Abbey, Shamon Brown Jr., Nicolas Cantu, and Brady Noon lend their voices to the titular turtles, with a star-studded supporting cast including Jackie Chan, Ayo Edebiri, Rogen, John Cena, and more, bringing life to the TMNT universe’s colorful characters.
Set against the gritty backdrop of New York City’s sewers and rooftops, the film sees our heroes taking on the nefarious Superfly, a gigantic talking fly who aims to overrun the city with his band of mutants.
The turtles, after years of living away from human society, strive to win the hearts of New Yorkers and be accepted as normal teenagers through heroic acts, aided by their new friend, April O’Neil. Yet, they find themselves in deep water when a mutant army is unleashed upon them.
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. 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.
This latest iteration stands on the shoulders of a rich TMNT legacy, which started with the comics and moved to the screen with an animated series in 1987 and live-action films in the 1990s. “Mutant Mayhem” hopes to captivate audiences with its modern take on this classic franchise.
