For the first time in almost a decade, a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film is ready to hit the big screen on August 4. Produced by Seth Rogen and directed by The Mitchells vs. the Machines Jeff Rowe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem isn’t straying too far from the source material established over decades of live-action films, animated TV series, and comic books, but it has a design that makes it stand out visually from all the other adaptations of the past.
Set in the familiar sewers of New York City, Mutant Mayhem sees the Turtle brothers head to the surface in an effort to step out of the shadows, and along the way, they’ll meet familiar allies, take on a criminal syndicate, and tangle with an army of Manhattan mutants.
“In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, after years of being sheltered from the human world, the Turtle brothers set out to win the hearts of New Yorkers and be accepted as normal teenagers through heroic acts,” the film’s official synopsis reads. “Their new friend April O’Neil helps them take on a mysterious crime syndicate, but they soon get in over their heads when an army of mutants is unleashed upon them.”
The latest TMNT film happens to have a pretty stacked voice cast attached to it, as the Ninja Turtles are voiced by Micah Abbey, Shannon Brown Jr., Nicholas Cantu, and Brady Noon. Jackie Chan and Ayo Edebiri voice Splinter and April O’Neil, respectively, while some of the heavyweight villains are brought to life by John Cena (Rocksteady), Seth Rogen (Bebop), and Giancarlo Esposito (Baxter Stockman).
The rest of the cast includes Paul Rudd as Mondo Gecko, Ice Cube as Superfly, and Maya Rudolph as Cynthia Utrom, although there’s no mention of longtime Turtles adversary Shredder in this line-up.
