Turtle power! Just last week we learned about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film in development. But before they make it back to the big screen, our favorite reptiles will hit Nickelodeon in a new animated series called Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And the opening title sequence for the show, including a brand new theme song, just dropped.
For over 30 years, we've been obsessed with these four turtles who fight, skateboard, and keep the streets of New York City safer, all while enjoying pizza whenever they want. And this latest show looks like it just may continue that streak.
Earlier this year we got a sneak-peek of the turtles in action in a trailer for the series, but today on Twitter, the official TMNT account released the opening sequence for the show, which features a reimagining of the original theme song. This jam certainly has a unique spin on the familiar theme, but does seem to match well overall with the tone of the series. And at least it wasn't sung by actual turtles.
Check it out:
As you can tell, the upcoming series will have a different animation style than the previous version, but it still seems to keep the fun banter between the four brothers that TMNT fans have grown to love.
The show will star the vocal talents of Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raphael, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Leonardo, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donatello, Brandon Mychal Smith (You’re The Worst) as Michelangelo, Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April O’Neil, and Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Master Splinter.
Who's ready to follow these turtles into the sewers on their upcoming adventures this September? Cowabunga!
