Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles CG-Animated Movie in the Works

-

Nickelodeon and Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver are teaming up on an all-new CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theatrical motion picture.

The film marks Nickelodeon Animation Studio’s first-ever CG theatrical production, in partnership with Ramsey Naito, Executive Vice President, Animation Production and Development, overseeing production for Nickelodeon.

Josh Fagen is overseeing for Point Grey Pictures. Paramount Pictures will handle worldwide distribution of the film.

The theatrical motion picture will be directed by Jeff Rowe (Gravity Falls, Connected, Disenchantment) and written by Brendan O’Brian (Neighbors, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates).

“Adding Seth, Evan and James’ genius to the humor and action that’s already an integral part of TMNT is going to make this a next-level reinvention of the property,” said Brian Robbins, President, Kids & Family for ViacomCBS.

“I’m looking forward to see what they do, and I know that Ramsey Naito and her team are excited to take the Nick Animation Studio into another great direction with their first-ever CG-animated theatrical.”

Considered one of the most popular kids’ franchises, TMNT is a classic, global property created in 1984 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. It first debuted as a successful comic book series and then became a hit animated TV show, a live-action television series and later spawned numerous blockbuster theatrical releases.

The property is a global consumer products powerhouse, winning in every category that has hit shelves to date — with toys, apparel, video games, DVDs and more — and generating billions of dollars at retail.

Nickelodeon brought the franchise to life again in 2012 with the CG-animated series Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and then reimagined the Heroes in a Half-Shell with the 2D-animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in 2019.

As previously announced, as part of a separate deal, Nickelodeon and Netflix are partnering to produce an original animated 2D film based on the current Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series.
