Titled Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie, the Nickelodeon pic picks up the turtles when a mysterious stranger arrives from the future with a dire warning. Leo is forced to rise and lead his brothers, Raph, Donnie, and Mikey in a fight to save the world from a terrifying alien species…the Krang! The movie is directed by Ant Ward and Andy Suriano, written by writers Tony Gama-Lobo and Rebecca May, and produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studios. The voice cast stars Ben Schwartz, Omar Benson Miller, Brandon Mychal Smith, Josh Brener, Kat Graham, Eric Bauza, Haley Joel Osment. The Rise of the TMNT movie has a runtime of 1 hour and 22 minutes.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie is based on Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Nickelodeon's 2D-animated follow up to the network's CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. Premiering in 2018 and running for two seasons, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an action-comedy series follows the band of brothers as they discover new powers and encounter a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City.

The series stars the voice talent of Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raph, a jagged-shelled snapping turtle; Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Leo, a red-eared slider turtle; Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donnie, a soft-shell turtle; Brandon Mychal Smith (You're The Worst) as Mikey, a box turtle; Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April O'Neil, a street savvy native New Yorker; Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Splinter, father figure and sensei to the Turtles; and WWE Superstar John Cena as the villainous, Baron Draxum.

Nickelodeon and Netflix first announced plans for Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie as well as a animated movie inspired by The Loud House in February 2019, as part of Nickelodeon and Paramount Global's broader efforts to tap into Nickelodeon's intellectual properties (IP) to continue producing new content for digital and linear platforms. Nickelodeon and Netflix expanded on their pact to form a new, multi-year output deal to produce original animated feature films and television series - based both on the Nickelodeon library of characters as well as all-new IP - for kids and families around the world.

The Loud House Movie premiered on Netflix on August 20, 2021. The Rise of the TMNT flick was originally slated to premiere around the same time, but was postponed until this year.

Leading up to the debut of Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie, Netflix will be adding season one of Nickelodeon's 2012 CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series and the freshman season of the network's 2D-animated Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on May 31.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie is one of several TMNT projects in the pipeline: Nickelodeon Animation is partnering with Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver to develop a new CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, "The Next Chapter", which will be released in theaters on August 4, 2023. The pic will be Nickelodeon Animation Studio’s first-ever CG theatrical release. Meanwhile, Colin Jost (Saturday Night Live) and his brother Casey (Impractical Jokers) are also reportedly penning a new live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie for Paramount, although his is still currently unconfirmed. Paramount+ also announced earlier this year that it'll be producing a series of exclusive movies for the streaming service, beginning in 2023, each centering on one of the property’s storied villains in never-before-told tales.
