Comic News: Nickelodeon Buys Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
But now, news has hit the internet like a tornado with an attitude that Nickelodeon, the TV station most known for its re-runs of classic movies and kids cartoons shorts, has acquired full rights to the TMNT franchise. Nickelodeon has announced its plans to relaunch the Turtles as an animated cartoon show to hit TV’s everywhere by 2012.
In addition to the cartoon show relaunching, a live action/CGI film is also in the works which is promised to go back to the “roots” of Eastman and Lairds original idea for the Turtles. It will be much darker and more mature in content. Keep your eyes out for this!
