First Official Full Length Trailer for Nickelodeon’s New TMNT Reboot

It’s been over a year since the first meaningful details about Nickelodeon’s new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot were released, and still we were waiting for some kind of trailer or something to give us a hint about what the show would be like. We knew through interviews with Kevin Eastman and the series creators that it would be anime inspired and entirely CG, which immediately concerned some fans. It was also revealed that the show would feature an awesome cast of vocal talents such as Sean Astin, Jason Biggs and Phil LaMarr. Heck, they even created and revealed the first line of toys that were designed and based on the show, and some of those toys even made it to the aftermarket of eBay well before the show had even aired, let alone before Nickelodeon had revealed much of anything about how it would really look. Thankfully, the long wait for that first look that we’ve truly been craving is finally over.

This first official trailer for the new series runs almost a minute and a half long, giving us a proper look at both the style of the show and its focus. Sure, it’s just a trailer, but we can surmise a lot more about the show from it than we can from all the other details we’ve been given up to this point. Here we see our first look at the new turtles, and if this trailer is any indication, we are in for an awesome show! Nickelodeon definitely chose some awesome voice actors for this reboot, and it shows in the trailer as we can already feel the camaraderie between the turtles. In addition, we also get a look at the new Shredder, and he looks just as menacing as ever. Yes, the anime influences are obvious, but they don’t seem to overshadow the story arch in any way. I don’t know about you, but this trailer has gotten me pretty excited about the new show! What did you think? Let us know in the comments below.
