The Next Mutation


Today, I’ve been tagged, mentioned and been repeatedly texted more than I can count regarding the release of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle trailer! If anyone knows me, they’d know I am a huge TMNT fanatic! Thanks to all of you! It’s a heartwarming feeling when people think about you over such topics you’re so passionate about, even it is for four reptilian ninjas!

I FINALLY just watched the trailer over lunch at work… Four times! I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time and all I can say is, “cowabunga!” It brought tears of happiness to my eyes to see my favorite four on screen in what it looks to be like an amazing and most triumphant film. It trailer has “Michael Bay” written all over and for that, I’m pleased. Why? Well, it’s exactly what I expected for I knew how the TMNT, Foot, April and Shredhead looked like ahead of time and what I saw was b-e-a-utiful! Leonardo, Raph, Mikey and Don look truly awesome and terrifying! The trailer is action packed, suspenseful and goofy! Just what a great TMNT film should be!


Now a lot of you will disagree with me. I’ve been a TMNT fan ever since I saw them on tv in 1989. I still to this day, watch every TMNT film including TMNT 2007 and my favorite TMNT film, “Turtles Forever” (If you haven’t seen this film, go out and buy it! Its the greatest TMNT film you can imagine. It’ll bring many tears of happiness to your eyes and you will love and respect the TMNT even more!) I’ve seen the 1996 Mutant Turtles: Superman Legend, 2003 Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation and am absolutely in love with the recent 2012 series. I’ve seen most of what the franchise has to offer! I have the biggest TMNT collection I know personally and you’d think I’d be upset at what is in this new trailer. In fact, I love it. I love the way the Turtles look. The TMNT everyone loves and can’t escape from only existed in one series… The 90s show. You’d be surprised at how many TMNT fans don’t know that the Turtles all had red bandanas in the original comic by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. The TMNT always change their look and forever will and that’s the way it should be, just like the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. Don’t be upset at what was and is now but be happy and enjoy that they are still here and changing, bringing us, the fans a fresh new look ever few years.

Don’t think this film will be aweful. Think of it as a new take of the series for it will always be changing. You can’t drown yourself in the past so Shred some light on these new Turtles and love them. Remember, YOU are the reason they exist. You’ve been there for them from the beginning and you know you’ll be there until the end… If there ever will be an end!
