Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Controversial designs or not Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is coming.

From the first pieces of promo art for this new incarnation of the franchise fans have been at odds. Whilst the characters share more in common with their most recent movie counterparts their theme tune does not.

Nickelodeon has released this teaser for the series opening credit sequence and it feature a very familiar tune.

Controversially it would seem that these sequence puts Raphael and not Leonardo at the head of the team. Whilst fans have argued for years as to which sits at the head of the table many mainstream audiences will accept Leo as the turtles leader. But not any more.

We don’t yet know when the series will premiere but we expect to learn more at the Turtles panel at San Diego Comic Con which will be held on Thursday, July 19, 1:45p.m. – 2:45p.m. (Room: 6A).
