We'll be waiting even LONGER to see Michael Bay's version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but at least Nickelodeon is introducing the reptilian heroes to an entirely new generation of fans in the meantime.
A trailer for the reboot of the classic series has been released (above) and it looks…well, it doesn't look great. However, we could just be bitter that the beloved animation we grew up with is no more.
Considering Pixar movies rule the world these days, we're not that surprised to see that Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo have become computer animated. We just wish it didn't look like a cheap video game.
Oh well. At least Shredder still looks pretty bad ass.
Hopefully today's generation of children fall in love with these characters just as much as we did when we were their age. This is one franchise we'd love to see make a complete comeback when it returns to television this fall.

Sad, sad news.
We are going to have to wait at least another year to see what Michael Bay does with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.
The planned reboot, which was already in pre-production in Vancouver, has been SHUT DOWN by Paramount Pictures because of script problems.
The future of the movie is uncertain too. Some sources say production has simply been pushed back by 10 weeks, but others claim the hiatus is "indefinite."
It doesn't sound like

Michael Bay is doing all sorts of wrong to the fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. First he announced that Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael, and Leonardo were going to be from an alien planet in his live-action reboot, which quickly prompted outrage on the internet.
NOW he's announced that the title of the highly-anticipated film will be shortened to simply Ninja Turtles.
Surprise, surprise…fans are pissed. He last told the disappointed masses on his website to "take a breath, and chill." In response to the most recent outrage over the name change, he's not citing "a more complex back story," but pointing fingers at the studio in charge of this operation, writing:

It looks as though producer Michael Bay has
no ONE person on his side in regards to his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake!!
Brian Tochi, the actor who originally voiced Leonardo, has stepped up in support of Bay on his decision to turn the turtles into aliens.

Producer Michael Bay recently announced he's
ruining remaking Teenage MUTANT Ninja Turtles into a live-action movie…but he wants to turn them into edgy ALIENS!
Bay, amid fans' (and original voice-actors) growing concerns and outrage, took to his website, saying:

Cowabunga!!! Santa will be bringing pizza and tubular turtles in 2013!
Paramount has announced that their next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles flick will be released around Christmas of next year. As reported earlier, Jonathan Liebesman will be the helmer of the project … which makes us a bit antsy due to his gory track record. But maybe that is just us.
Are U excited for the return of Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael?!
We just wish we could have a tiny sneak peek of this flick!!!

After quite a while without any updates, we're excited to hear that the Turtles are still coming back…but we are NOT feeling this director choice!
We've just learned that Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman is in negotiations to direct Paramount's upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot…and we're not so sure he's the right guy for the job.
It's nothing personal at all, but the guy's directing track record includes Darkness Falls and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. Unless they're looking to delve into VERY dark territory with this Turtles movie, he just doesn't seem to fit the bill.
Here are the other details that have been revealed on the TMNT reboot thus far:
