San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) 2019: Can we expect a third Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie announcement during 'To Shell and Back' panel discussion?
'Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' co-executive producers Andy Suriano and Ant Ward along with legendary TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman will be part of a panel discussion during SDCC and we are hoping for a surprise
Come the San Diego Comic-Com 2019 next month and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' fans will get a chance to say "Cowabunga."
The much-awaited event will have a panel discussion titled 'To Shell and Back' featuring 'Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' co-executive producers Andy Suriano and Ant Ward along with legendary TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman. While the topic of discussion is pretty much under wraps at the moment, we have a rough idea of what we can expect during the panel discussion.
First up, 'Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles', the animated cartoon series, was renewed by Nickelodeon for a second season consisting of 26 episodes last July. The first season succeeded the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' and spanned 35 episodes.
In all probability, the panel discussion would shed light on character development, and the legacy of TMNT, and maybe at the end of the session give an exclusive sneak peek of the second season.
Or, an announcement of sorts about a live action film reboot. According to Screenrant, Paramount's live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie reboot was slated to start filming in 2019. Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael were featured in live-action movies produced by Michael Bay in 2014 and 2016. But while it gained steam initially, neither was a hit with critics. The second movie 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows', was a disappointment after making $245 million worldwide.
The iconic cartoon follows the story of a ninjutsu master, Hamato Yoshi (Splinter) and his four pet turtles, and who during a fight with an alien race exposes them to a chemical called mutagen causing them to undergo major physical transformations.
Yoshi takes on characteristics of a brown rat and the turtles take on human characteristics. He later trains them in ninjutsu and the four grow up to protect the city from crime and alien invaders.
At this moment, we can only hope that 'To Shell and Back' will have a surprise to dish out when it takes place at the San Diego Central Library from 4-5 pm on July 18.
