Turtle Power – New Documentary On the Horizon

While the fate of one TMNT film hangs in the balance, the fate of another has only just begun. Of course, this isn’t any kind of live action affair, this is a documentary about the turtle power documentary horizon. Not exactly the origins that we’ve all been talking about as of late, but rather just exactly how they came into being and how they became so popular. Turtle Power tells the tale of two independent comic artists who came up with an idea that shook the world. I’m sure most fans know quite a bit of the story, but some might be amazed at what they will discover. In the film, creators Kevin Eastman and
Peter Laird will be talking about their experiences with the turtles and sharing video footage from the early days. In addition, the documentary will feature interviews with several people who were instrumental in the creation and over-all success of the franchise, including but not limited to the following:

Kevin Clash

Brian Henson

Steve Varner (Toy Sculptor)

John Handy (Playmates)

Ernie Reyes Jr.

Michael Ian Black

Steve Barron

Brian Tochi

Michelle Ivey

Stephan Reese

In addition to that long list of contributors, Turtle Power marks the first ever reunion of the voice cast for the original animated series, and brings together a lot of the people from the team at Mirage comics that made TMNT possible. The list of stars is simply too long to really do justice to all of them, but suffice it to say that this documentary is really going to go in depth and explore every facet of the story behind the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If you’re a fan, you owe it to yourself to at least check out the trailer for Turtle Power. There’s no official release date as of yet, but it should be ready for release sometime in 2013.
