Nickelodeon is bringing together voice cast members, series co-executive producers and special guests on a panel at New York Comic Con 2018 to talk about what fans can expect from the reimagined animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Throughout the convention, attendees can also experience one-of-a-kind activations at its booth (located in the Crystal Palace).
The panel will take place on the Main Stage at the Javits Center on Friday, October 5th at 4:15-5:15 p.m. The panel will include Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raph, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donnie, Brandon Smith (You’re the Worst) as Mikey and Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April. Joining the cast are co-executive producers, Andy Suriano and Ant Ward, and legendary voice director Rob Paulsen. The panel highlights will include never-before-seen clips from the series, special guests and exclusive giveaways.
At the series’ booth, attendees can step inside the Turtles’ secret lair under the streets of New York City for a gif opportunity. They’ll also be able to enter the Loud family’s living room, sit on the couch and take a group photo with Lincoln Loud and his 10 sisters. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will make appearances at Nick’s booth at select times during the convention as well.
There will also be a signing opportunity with the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles voice talent and executive producers at IDW booth.
Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles season one will debut on Monday, Sept. 17, with the global rollout set to premiere this fall across Nickelodeon’s channels and branded blocks in 170+ countries and territories. The all-new original animated series follows the Turtles on different adventures as they master new powers, encounter absurd mutants and battle bizarre villains, each with their own motivations. Ranging from mystics, mutants and madmen, new creatures and villains emerge to take on the brothers in battles across New York City.
The series stars new voice talent Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raph, a jagged-shelled snapping turtle; Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Leo, a red-eared slider turtle; Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donnie, a soft-shell turtle; Brandon Mychal Smith (You’re The Worst) as Mikey, a box turtle; Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April O’Neil, a street savvy native New Yorker; Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Splinter, father figure and sensei to the Turtles; and WWE Superstar John Cena as the villainous, Baron Draxum.
