    TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: 25TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION

    “SHELL-EBRATE” 25 YEARS OF TURTLE-MANIA
    ON BLU-RAY™ AND DVD AUGUST 4

    Supported by Massive Co-Branded Marketing
    and Promotional Campaigns Throughout 2009


    BURBANK, CALIF. (April 27, 2009) – Warner Home Video (WHV) is “shell-ebrating” 25 years of turtle-mania by introducing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 25th Anniversary Collection on Blu-ray™ and DVD August 4. WHV is honoring the 25th Anniversary of the iconic characters with a tribute to the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic books and products --- the authenticity and strength of the brand has shown true staying power for a quarter of a century. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is beloved by parents, kids, and young adults alike as they embody the values of brotherhood, teamwork, and family … and they’re “totally tubular, dude.”

    Both the Blu-ray and DVD options include all four feature films, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie (the highest-grossing independent film of all time when it was released and the fifth highest-grossing film worldwide of 1990), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (the #1 film at the box office for three consecutive weeks), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Turtles in Time and the 2007 CGI hit, TMNT (the #1 film in the U.S. on its opening weekend). The Blu-ray™ Collection adds retro pizza box packaging, an exclusive reproduction of ”TMNT: The Movie” comic book, an exclusive original sketch with creator Peter Laird’s autograph, collectible character cards and a TMNT beanie hat. The DVD Collection comes packaged in a collectible tin DVD travel case, with four turtle masks and temporary tattoos. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: 25th Anniversary Collection will be available on Blu-ray™ for $84.99 SRP and DVD for $39.92 SRP.

    Since their introduction in 1984, The Turtles have established themselves as a true “evergreen” brand and pop culture icons. Twenty-five years later, they’re also being enjoyed by a new generation of fans through their animated TV series, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Back to the Sewer, airing Saturday mornings in TheCW4Kids block on The CW Network. From their home in the storm sewers of Manhattan, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael battle petty criminals, evil megalomaniacs, and alien invaders, all while remaining isolated from society at large. The Turtles’ bravery and humor continue to resonate with audiences as the four heroes in a half-shell maintain their status as beloved global icons with no end in sight to their pizza-loving, crime-fighting ways.

    Beginning April 23, the official 25th Anniversary Shell-ebration Mobile Tour kicks off in New York City, featuring a TMNT-branded Party Bus complete with media, memorabilia and interactive experiences, that will travel coast-to-coast promoting the brand in 10-15 major cities. Check out the TMNTWebsite (Home - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 25th Anniversary) for video-logs and updates from the mobile tour, upcoming events as well as TMNT partner news and products.

    As much as I want the BD box, I'm going to be looking for a serious discount. 85 bucks for catalogue titles?

    I agree. With a typical 30% online discount, the Blu-ray set would still be $60. For now, I'll stick with my DVDs of the live-action films and my Blu-ray of TMNT (which I just "upgraded" thru Warner's Red2Blu promotion).

    I hope the original film gets a single blu-ray release at some point. I already have 2 and 3 on dvd and TMNT on HD-DVD and those will suit me fine but the original film is one I would double dip on.

    It's interesting that the ad calls the third film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Turtles in Time. I don't recall ever having seen it given a sub-title before. "Turtles in Time" was the sub-title of one of the TMNT videogames, though.

    The Turtles in Time subtitle was used on the video release and on print ads in Canada, where it was distributed by Alliance Atlantis. The poster does not use this title, however.
