Garfield/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover coming soon!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will have to order an extra side of lasagna with their pizza soon!
The lazy orange feline from the front of the funny pages Garfield will soon join our mutated shell heads in a multi-platform venture slated to start early 2021.
With news that parent company Viacom has acquired the rights to Garfield, the news doesn’t come as much of a surprise. So far on the table is an ongoing comic series (co-released by Kaboom! and IDW), an animated TV show to air on the Nickelodeon network, and a trilogy of live action films.
While not much is known at time of publication, a cast and director has been announced for the live action movie series.
From the press release-
The film centers around Garfield (Zach Galifinakis), a lazy, lasagna loving house-cat, who suddenly becomes separated from his owner, Jon Arbuckle (Ansel Elgort). While trying to find his way home, he encounters some strange new friends- the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Join Leonardo (Chris Evans), Raphael (Idris Alba), Michelangelo (Pete Davidson), Donatello (Daniel Kaluuya) and their human pals April O’Neil (Ariana Grande) and Casey Jones (Daniel Radcliffe) as they fight past the evil Foot-Clan and Shredder (John Cena) to get Garfield home.
With Tim Burton in the director’s chair and also featuring the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Master Splinter, this adventure is sure to delight families and fans of all ages!
This adds to the list of popular crossovers for the TMNT. They recently wrapped a very popular comic with Batman which turned in to an animated feature. There is also a crossover with the Power Rangers which fans love!
Next year is heating up to be interesting for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! But just in case you weren’t sure…
Stay safe everyone!
