Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Promo Image Surfaces

Promo art for new TMNT series debuts online.

I don’t know about this.

I love that it’s going to be 2D.  But the recently-concluded CG show was go good and felt like such a definitive take on the Turtles mythos, I’m not feeling very excited about the reboot.

From CBR:

“In Rise of the Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles, the four brothers are each a different reptile, and possess a very different weapon from what we’re used to. The cool but crude Raphael is now team leader, the position previously held by Leonardo. Not only that, he’ll be a snapping turtle who’s ditched his iconic sais for twin tonfas. Leonardo, now a red-eared slider full of charm and “rebel heart,” will be wield an ōdachi sword; Donatello is a soft-shell turtle with a tech bo staff and master coder; and Michelangelo is a box turtle rocking a kusari-fundo with the personality of an artist.”

The leadership tension between Leo and Raph is always at the heart of the family dynamic.  Now we’re seeing the roles somewhat reversed, but Leo with a “rebel heart?”  That will not do.

Also, they change weapons.  And they’re magic.

I like Donnie’s quad copter tho.
