“Personally, I have seen the script, I have been working on some of the character designs, and I think Michael Bay’s films, and their track record, speak for themselves. This is going to be an awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film that the fans will love!”

Eastman then praised the Nick TV show.

“Honestly, the Nickelodeon series is my favorite version of the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ever! Yes, I love so much of the classic original series, and the edgy nature of the second series, but this really hit the reset button for me, and took them back to their roots and re-imagined them with clever insight to where all the different story possibilities could go.

“It fully uses the latest and the coolest animation technology available to tell really fun and really cool new stories for both old and new fans. I’m a really big fan and supporter of the entire Nickelodeon creative team on this project, and very fond of Ciro Nieli’s efforts and vision of our characters.”
