Apparently it's so new, even Peter Laird hadn't heard about it untill he read a report on the Toonzone Message Boards. So, no news is forthcoming on plot details.

I'm hoping it'll be theatrical, perhaps animate a storline from the comics alla Return to New York in the style of the new show. Maby carry a PG-13 rating.

?If anyone here knows someone from 4kids and can give us some insite, most appreciated.

If Peter Laird didn't know, it would have to be very early in pre-production. Definitely not a go yet. I doubt there are any concrete plans currently.

Whatever happend to the CGI version that I heard about a while back? Was that just a rumor. The turtles are making a big comeback with the cartoon, toys, and new video game.

I find this to be totally ridiculous. They have a potentially HUGE product by releasing the original TMNT on DVD, and last I heard it wasn't even on the table. Yet, here they are thinking of making a new movie?

Maybe my expectations for today's audience is lacking, but I think that they'd have a better money-maker on their hands by releasing the original series on DVD as opposed to a new movie.

Are you referring to the original animated TV show or the first movie? Because the first movie and it's sequel (not sure about Turtles in Time) are both on DVD, in fact I picked it up at Kmart for like $9.00 not too long ago. Granted its barebones as everything, but it's nice to have the film on disc as I love it!

The original cartoon series. I already have the movies on DVD. Posted Image

I mean - my God - A&E thinks that there was enough demand for Danger Cat and Minute Mouse of all cartoons; yet there's apparently not enough demand to release the original TMNT episodes on DVD, but there is enough demand to possibly make a new movie?? Oh, come on!

The CGI version was long rumored but never came to fruition. With the new animated series one of the highest rated Fox Box shows(wich isn't saying much), I'd put much more moeny on betting this thing will see daylight.

And jsut to confirm things, this is a new animated movie based on the Fox Box show, not the original series..

And on another thread, apparently with Artisan up for sale, releasing the TMNT on DVD is apparently not a #1 priority anymore untill a sale is compelte.

The CGI movie was real. The test footage can be found around the internet, but apparently, it never got greenlit and then the options expired.

I heard about and saw the mysterious "internet CGI footage," but as far as I'm aware that was actually a test for a possible CGI series rather than a film, and the horrid quality of the stuff was a testament to that if I remember how awful it looked correctly Posted Image

I got the test footage off a file sharing service for the proposed CGI series. The quality of the file wasn't great, but it looked to me like they were doing a good job with the animation and it was just a test reel. It was ultimately abandoned I guess for the new series, which I think has done pretty well.
