Cowabunga - The Turtles Are Back.. Again?by πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» Graham Pierrepoint

There’s some pop culture franchises that seem to live forever – perhaps not in one particular form, but in several, evolving across various mediums and shifting forms and looks to better fit the aesthetics of the current time period. Inarguably, one of the longest-enduring franchises of the last 40 years has been Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – a once ridiculous-sounding premise that started life as a fairly gritty comic some decades ago, pizza-eating, giant bipedal turtles with ninja weapons have been a solid part of western culture for an incredible span of time – in fact, there likely won’t be a Millennial alive who can’t remember not being aware of the bodacious green dudes. While still archetypal of the late 80s and early 90s, there have been multiple animated adaptations of the series, and there have been multiple attempts to try and bring TMNT to the big screen – most recently via Michael Bay, with two movies that were met with lukewarm critical reception and clearly enough money to push on forwards. The Turtles movies of the 90s remain the most memorable, however – though that could be about to change.

Against all odds – it seems that we’re set to see another TMNT movie in the next few years. Bay is on board to produce, and Paramount are the studio heads involved – with Platinum Dunes on side to act as the main production company. While the announcement of a third movie after the so-so appeal of the last instalment – Out of The Shadows, in 2016 – is surprising enough, what’s even odder is that fact that there’s no official line as yet with regard to whether or not it will be a sequel to the 2016 movie, or yet another reboot. There’s so much continuity and resetting in this franchise’s universe that it would take an entire afternoon just to summarize it all in simple terms!

The Turtles – Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello – and their rat sensei Splinter – have been around for so long and have been reincarnated so many times that it’s hard to say what will appeal to the most fans in a further adaptation. Something dark, and close to the comics? Something big, goofy and action packed – like the 80s animated series or the 90s movies? It’s a fine balance – and it goes without saying that no two Turtles fans are the same. Stay tuned for news as we have it!
