From 'permanent teenager' Seth Rogen comes a new take on your favorite turtles.
The heroes in a half shell are back!
Paramount Pictures shared the first trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem on Monday, following Seth Rogen's announcement of the star-studded voice cast at the Kids' Choice Awards over the weekend.
Rogen is a producer on the film, set to hit theaters Aug. 3, and also voices mutant warthog Bebop, alongside a young cast of talent as the turtles: Micah Abbey (Donatello), Shamon Brown Jr. (Michelangelo), Nicolas Cantu (Leonardo), and Brady Noon (Raphael).
The Bear's Ayo Edebiri voices April O'Neil, who has an important question for the turtles in the trailer, asking, "So you were baby turtles who made contact with mystery goo..."
"Well, we prefer the term ooze, but, yeah," Raphael answers.
The rest of the voice cast also includes Hannibal Buress (Genghis Frog), Rose Byrne (Leatherhead), John Cena (Rocksteady), Jackie Chan (Splinter), Ice Cube (Superfly), Natasia Demetriou (Wingnut), Giancarlo Esposito (Baxter Stockman), Post Malone (Ray Fillet), Paul Rudd (Mondo Gecko) and Maya Rudolph (Cynthia Utrom).
