If you have ever considered yourself a TMNT fan in any capacity, then this documentary needs to be on your radar.
Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an upcoming indie documentary from Canadian producer Isaac Elliott-Fisher of i.Productions in collaboration with FauxPop TV that celebrates over 25 years of TMNT history.
“Currently we have collected well over 100 hours of content, hundreds of stills, and over 60 in-depth interviews with the people who created the Turtles, the artists behind the original comics, the designers of the toys, the voices and technicians of the cartoons, the magic makers of the movies, and the loyal fans world wide.”
It has a totally kick-ass trailer that debuted a few weeks ago, which you can watch right here:
If you’re not even just a little bit excited after watching that, then clearly you’ve got something shoved up your shell.
One of the most interesting things about TMNT has always been how it started as a joke and grew into a wildly popular worldwide phenomenon, or as the film puts it, a series of “happy accidents.”
With the Turtle Power documentary in the works, Nickelodeon’s new TMNT animated show just around the corner, and a new live-action TMNT film set to hit theaters in 2013, it’s an awesome time to be a Ninja Turtles fan.
