Mutant Mayhem: Seth Rogen's 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Film Gets Title, Release Date

Seth Rogen reveals the release date and official title for his upcoming animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, which promises mutant mayhem.


Seth Rogen has revealed the official title and new release date for his upcoming animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie!

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is in theaters one year from today!!!!!" Rogen posted on Aug. 4, 2022 from his personal Twitter account. He also included a photo of an art installation revealing the film's logo, complete with Ooze. 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.

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.

Plot details for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remain under wraps, but 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."

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.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is scheduled to open in theaters on Aug. 4, 2023, having been pushed up a week from its original Aug. 11, 2023 release date.
