Continuing the story of Nickelodeon’s hit series, Raphael, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Donatello are back in action and up to their teen antics in this comedic adventure that raises the stakes higher than ever. The Turtles are put to the test when a mysterious stranger named Casey Jones arrives from the future to warn the mutant brothers of an impending invasion by the most dangerous alien force in the galaxy: the Krang! Can the team rise up to become the heroes they are meant to be, or will their teenage foibles get the best of them? What unfolds is the most adventurous, emotional and epic story of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ever told.
The original series was commissioned and produced by Nickelodeon, which also produces and handles the animation for the Netflix feature. Ant Ward and Andy Suriano direct from a script by Tony Gama-Lobo and Rebecca May.
After a long waiting period, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans will be able to see the show’s movie soon! Conceived as a follow-up to the series finale and aptly named Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie, this new adventure will see our favorite anthropomorphic turtles rise to the occasion against some doomsday doom.
Continuing their work on the television series, Ant Ward and Andy Suriano will direct the film. The score for Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie is composed by Matt Mahaffey, who also worked on the TV series and wrote the music for several other Nickelodeon shows including Ni-Hao, Kai-Lan, and Sanjay. and Craig. Moving from writing music to writing the film itself, Tony Gama-Lobo and Rebecca May have taken the helm. Gama-Lobo has done previous work for Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, with writing credit for the second season finale. Rebecca May does not appear to have any previous creative roles within the show, but she (along with Gama-Lobo) previously worked on King of the Hill for a number of years.
