Things Are Different With 'Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'

Puberty is rough?

Last year Nickelodeon  announced that they would be rebooting the Teenage Mutant Turtles cartoon, going back to its 2D roots with Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 2018. At the time, it didn't sound like things would be changing too much with this new version, though it was supposed to be a "different direction" that was "younger" and "lighter".

Well, today Nickelodeon held a character art reveal and well, it isn't exactly Bay-TMNT, but well… we're sure they have great personalities? Blame it on secondary mutations? Nevermind, have a look:

And here are the bros in individually. Descriptions are from Entertainment Weekly, their weapns of choice have changed and their roles, a little bit.


rottmnt-raphael.jpgRaphael (Omar Miller) is now the eldest and leader. He uses tonfa and is a snapping turtle.


rottmnt-leonardo.jpgLeonardo (Ben Schwartz) is not only no longer the leader, he now wields only one sword, an ōdachi sword. He is a red-eared slider who is supposed to be a rebellious charmer.


rottmnt-donatello.jpgDonatello (Josh Brener) still has a bo but now it is a tech-bo! He remains the tech guy, and can code. He is a soft-shell turtle.


rottmnt-michelangelo.jpgMichelangelo (Brandon Mychal Smith) is the youngest of the brothers. He now uses the kusari-fundo and is a skateboarder and artist. He is a box turtle.


With the art reveal, we also got a look at two other main protagonists:


rottmnt-april.jpgApril O'Neil (Kat Graham) is, we guess, no longer a lab assistant or reporter? She is just described as a savvy New Yorker and the first human to befriend the turtles.


rottmnt-splinter.jpgSplinter (Eric Bauza) remains the turtles' sensei and a rat.

John Cena will voice the villain Baron Draxum, an "alchemist warrior mutant" who wants to make all humans mutants.

No release date was given, but it was previously announced that the show would debut in the Fall of 2018.
