Since the 1980s, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been a big part of pop culture. Even though they have mostly been on TV with shows like Rise of the TMNT and the CG series, people were very excited when Seth Rogen said he would be involved in bringing the heroes back to the big screen.
Rogen announced the main cast of the planned Mutant Mayhem movie, which he is executive producing, at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards. Micah Abbey (Meet the Voxels) does the voice of Donatello, Nicolas Cantu (The Fablemans) does the voice of Leonardo, Shamon Brown Jr. (The Chi) does the voice of Michelangelo, and Brady Noon (The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers) does the voice of Raphael. Master Splinter will be voiced by Jackie Chan, and April O’Neil, a human friend of the Turtles for a long time, will be played by Ayo Edebiri (The Bear).
The movie shows how the Turtles keep trying to help New York City and want to be known for their bravery. But when they and April go after a new group of criminals in the city, monster bad guys show up and start making trouble. As usual, the Turtles have to put things back in order.
The Turtles will face monsters who have been in the show before. The cast includes Hannibal Burress as Genghis Frog, Rose Byrne as Leatherhead, Natasia Demetriou as Wingnut, Paul Rudd as Mondo Gecko, Maya Rudolph as Cynthia Utrom, Post Malone as Ray Fillet, Ice Cube as Superfly (an original creation for the film), Giancarlo Esposito as Baxter Stockman, Seth Rogen as Bebop, and John Cena as Rocksteady.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem won’t come out until August 4, but the first video will come out on March 6. With such a great group and the promise of a first look, Turtles fans can’t wait for the movie to come out.
