Although the turtles are fighting for shelf space in toy stores around the country, it would appear that they won’t have to fight so hard for screen time when Star Wars: The Force Awakens releases this December. That’s right, we could have the trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 in less than a month. In fact, some reports suggest that it could be here even earlier than that. Unfortunately, all we have to go on right now is Stephen Amell’s cryptic message, which is probably even more informative than Viacom will be happy with.
In a video recently posted to Youtube, Stephen Amell can be seen and heard stating that a TMNT related trailer may be dropping soon. His exact quote is as follows:
“If you’re a TMNT fan, you’re going to want to go to the theater in December for a relatively big movie that’s being released, for a fantastic trailer.”
For all we know, this could be inaccurate. However, being that Stephen Amell is the one spreading this rumor, I’d say there’s a pretty good chance that this information is accurate. Although the video title suggests that it will be shown before Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Amell himself never says the words “Star Wars,” so he could be referring to an entirely different movie. With that in mind, it’s still unclear when and where we can expect to get our first glimpse at TMNT 2, although this is probably an indication that we can expect it to be released very soon.
If the TMNT 2 trailer does get released alongside Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that would be a pretty big deal. Considering that the trailer for the first movie was distributed only a few months before the release of the film, the mere fact that a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 trailer could drop over half a year before it officially comes out indicates that the studio has faith in the sequel. We’ve already noted that there are many reasons to be excited about this TMNT sequel, but if they’ve got enough faith in the film to release the trailer with Star Wars: Episode VII, that’s probably a good sign.
