Booyakasha! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Hits Theaters on August 8th #TMNTMovie

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie hits theaters on August 8th, and when asked to share the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie trailer on the blog there was no hesitation in my response. I don’t think my son would ever forgive me if I passed on an opportunity to write about his beloved turtles. As a boy who grew up in the late 80’s and 90’s watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, my son was fully immersed in all things TMNT.

Thanks to the turtles words like Cowabunga, Bodacious, Gnarly and Radical all became a part of my son’s vocabulary at an early age.

I didn’t mind my son’s obsession with the turtles, Michaelangelo in particular. They are the good guys after all. I hope I don’t embarrass my son by saying this, but he still has a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle ornament that has to be displayed prominently on the Christmas tree every year.

If you are not already familiar with the teenage mutant ninja turtles, four teenage turtles – Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo, and Donatello mutated into ninjas after prolonged exposure to radiation. Ever since they have been living in the city sewers with their ninja master Splinter (a rat) and reporter friend, April – saving the city from the likes of the evil warlord Shredder. Like most teenagers, the turtles like eating pizza (lots of it) and enjoy skateboarding. These typical teenage traits are part of the turtles’ appeal.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have such wide appeal. Young people in their twenties like my son and his friends are so excited about the upcoming movie. Then you the younger generations of TMNT fans and their parents who are looking forward to the movie, as well. I’ll be very surprised if “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” isn’t the biggest movie blockbuster of the summer.

I was reading that the famous TMNT “Cowabunga” isn’t spoken in the new movie, but a new word “Booyakasha” makes an appearance. I am curious to hear what my son and his friends think about this change. I’m sure my younger nieces and nephews won’t even notice the difference. I’m really looking forward to heading to the theater with them all on the weekend of August 8th to see the movie!

    Ack! I cannot believe they are bringing back all the 80s-90s shows! TNMT was big in our house when I was 7-9. :) I wonder how the new generation will like it?

    My son wants to see this. He is so obsessed with TMNT that I already bought a TMNT Halloween costume for him to wear this year. Haha – he wears it around the house since Halloween is so far off. We definitely want to see the movie!

    Growing up, my brother was a huge TMNT fan. I’m sure my husband was too! My son just thinks they’re a bunch of turtles. He’s a little too young to understand the movies quite yet. 😉

    This brings back so many memories from when my sons were young. I know the movies and merchandise were so popular back in the late 80s and early 90s. Glad to see it is still around.

    This movie is terrible, terrible, terrible. It insults the original teenage mutant ninja turtles. I am ashamed to know Michael Bay produced this film after he did such a great job with transformers. Seriously Tony shaloub as splinter?
