I like where popular animation style is going since Into the Spiderverse did something new, and this is following suit. I'm sure it won't be my favorite iteration of TMNT, but I'm at least intrigued.

Yeah, Spider-verse and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish did well with their more alternative CG animation styles, I'm glad to see that trend catching on a bit. I like the super high budget Pixar look too, but everything looking the same but not as "polished" was getting old. I'd say Kubo falls into that as well but I guess that actually was stop motion.

Too little to tell anything about this from the trailer but I like that it remembers the series is about, above all else, character.

Agreed about the animation style. It looks good. Thought Iím not sure Iím sold on Splinterís afro.

I assume this will end up on Paramount+ at some point so Iíll check it out there.

Definitely a pass for me. Not a fan of the animation ( I prefer the 2007 style).

I actually didnít mind the trailer. The comedy kind of works for this type of a movie. The animation style is different and not my first choice but the character designs overall donít bother me (Splinterís afro is a tad off putting though).

I've been getting back into TMNT the past year or so and I'm glad to see there's all kinds of projects still going. I watched the trailer this morning and I think it could be a lot of fun.

Iíve kind of gotten back into them recently as well. Back in 2020 when the 1990 film celebrated its 30th Anniversary I watched it and realized how good it really is. Iíve watched it again a couple times since and really have gained an appreciation for it.

Also the new game Shredderís Revenge came out and was a fun throwback to the classic games as well as The Cowabunga Collection allowed me to revisit the classic games.

In addition I got the first two volumes of the original comics and have been reading through them. I wouldnít mind reading some of the newer comics and have heard good things about one of the recent arcs (The Last Ronin).

Iíve also checked out a bit of the 2012 series and while itís aimed at a younger audience itís fairly decent from what Iíve seen.

Animation looks great, something new. And Afro Splinter!

Yeah, I binged the 2012 series last year and had fun with that, plus I've been picking up the Best-of compilation TPBs from IDW.

I'm not a fan. It doesn't look badly made and I do appreciate the rough sketch aesthetic reminiscent of the old Eastman & Laird comics, but the tone isn't for me. I'm sure it'll do well but I'm not who this is for.

Any chance we'll get a collected TPB of The Last Ronin? I really like the story , but don't feel like shelling out the money for all of the issues.

I dig the trailer and the animation style. I like that they actually sound like teenagers.

Dunno about a TPB, but the
hardcover edition hardcover edition
is fantastic and well worth it.

Watched TMNT tonight. Itís a pretty enjoyable movie overall. The rain fight scene between Leo and Raph is a definite highlight. It also strikes that balance just right of being a little on the dark side but not so much so where kids canít watch and it still has moments of humor. Pretty underrated little film and itís too bad it wasnít more well received.

I found the opening tagline odd - ďA new generation of heroes will rise straight from the sewerĒ.

TMNT has been around for decadesÖ

Eh, they're new interpretations. I don't think we've ever seen them at this level of pure goofball teenagers.

Yeah, I'm gonna see this in theaters and I am definitely buying the "Art of" book. I love the artwork.

Looks pretty decent. Again I wish the Turtles werenít permanently regulated to being strictly a kids brand but I guess it is what it is.

Hard pass for me. But I'm sure this will thrive.

In other news, it seems there's a new live action TMNT in early development and word is the tone will be that of the 1990 movie. If true, that'll be more my style.

The fact that this property can be reinterpreted so many different ways is why it always manages to thrive. This current interpretation may not be for me, but I'm glad it exists for those who're sure to love it.

Love the use of A Tribe Called Quest's 'Can I Kick It?' in the trailer.

Hoping this one is fun!
