New 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem' Plot Details Emerge

COWABUNGA! New details about the brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie Mutant Mayhem have been revealed!

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. Their new friend April O’Neil helps them take on a notorious crime syndicate, but they soon get in over their heads when an army of mutants is unleashed upon them. The film is produced by Seth Rogen.

The synopsis was revealed in a recent press release by PeaTos® and Paramount Consumer Products to announce a promotional partnership featuring PeaTos’ Crunch Pizza Rings timed to the theatrical release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem on August 4, 2023.

The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film was announced to be in development at Nickelodeon Animation Studio in June 2020. Jeff Rowe, best known for co-directing The Mitchells vs. the Machines, will direct the film from a screenplay by Brendan O'Brien. Rogen will produce alongside Evan Goldberg and James Weaver through their company Point Grey Pictures. Rogen previously revealed that the film will use the "teenage" part of the title as the "jumping off point for the film."

No casting has been announced for Mutant Mayhem at this time, but Rogen previously revealed in June 2021 that the four turtles will be voiced by teenagers instead of adult actors.

Nickelodeon Animation president Ramsey Naito is leading production for Nickelodeon, alongside Point Grey Pictures’s Josh Fagen. Paramount Pictures will distribute the film globally. The film will be Nickelodeon Animation Studio’s first-ever CG theatrical release.

Kevin Eastman, who co-created Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Peter Laird, has come out in support of the animated reboot. In a recent interview, Eastman revealed that although he wasn't involved in the project, he was nevertheless excited to see what Rogen would do with the famous pop culture characters. "No, I have not spoken to [Rogen], and that's also awesome because I do feel like different parts of the Turtles, different universes that Nickelodeon would bring me to work on," Eastman said. "And so that's what I think is special. Because I don't want him to feel intimidated or think that if he asks me a question, I tell him, 'Well, you should do this,' that he should do that. It's his vision and his idea."

Mutant Mayhem will be the seventh theatrical Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, as well as the first theatrical animated film starring Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael since 2007's TMNT.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem will be the first theatrically released TMNT movie since the 2016 live-action/CGI film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.

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.

Paramount is also working on a live-action reboot of the franchise, with Colin Jost and his brother Casey writing the script for the live-action film and Michael Bay returning as producer from the 2014 and 2016 films.
