RISE OF THE TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES' 1st Trailer Has Lots of Big Laughs and Big Baddies

Jul 19 2018 -- 5:13 PM

This fall, Nickelodeon is bringing back our favorite heroes in a half-shell with their all-new animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

But first, the most famous pizza-loving, sewer-dwelling superheroes in the world made a stop at San Diego Comic-Con to release the first official trailer for the show. And it proves that while the guys might not look the same, they still have their trademark sense of humor.

This action-packed, fast-moving look at the show – which also gives us a glimpse of our favorite sensei, Master Splinter – is big on the types of laughs we expect from some irreverent teenagers. It’s also big on villains; or, rather, “big on big villains,”  because these new foes are huge. We are talking about some of the largest, most intimidating bad guys the Ninja Turtles have ever faced. Just how terrifying are they? They’re so scary some of them come from Jersey!

We’re just joking Jersey, you know we love you.

As for Donatello’s proclamation that this “represents a new level of mutant ability,” it certainly appears that the Turtles aren’t the only powerful forces who are rising up, except the bad guys seem to be taking that a little more literally. Fortunately for our green heroes, they also seem to have access now to glowing weapons, and we all know glowing weapons are always more powerful. Or radioactive, one or the other.

When you’re fighting giant mutants, you might prefer a radioactive weapon. Even if it came from Jersey.

What do you think of this first look at the show? Let us know in the comments below.
