Seth Rogen has shared the title of his new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) project and cowabunga indeed!
The Canadian-American actor, filmmaker, and comedian has revealed the film, titled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, will be released on August 4, 2023, one year from the date of the title treatment announcement.
The reboot from Rogen and his producing team will be fully animated and is set to be part of a movie series.
A mural dedicated to the movie has also been unveiled in New York City to coincide with the announcement of its title and release date.
Rogen first revealed that he would be working with Nickelodeon on a new TMNT movie with a tweet in June 2021.
The post showed a page of notes and doodles supposedly written by the turtles’ leader, Leonardo, with the date August 11, 2023, in the corner.

Since then, the theatrical premiere of the film has been moved up to August 4, 2023.
The film will be co-directed by Jeff Rowe, who was previously the writer of the Netflix animated film The Mitchells vs. The Machines.
Rogen’s long-term collaborator Evan Goldberg is tied to the project alongside James Weaver.
The storyboard artist from the series, Kyle Spears, will also work on the new TMNT film.
Details about the plot or cast have not yet been revealed.
