    Really? is this going to be world wide?

    Oh my.... goodness....

    I have to buy tickets in advance!!! I love those Pizza eating dudes... and since the character's personalities are the same as the new series, there will be no doubt that this will be an even bigger success than the first time (a lot of us were confused when they differed from the original Cartoon series version...)

    If this happens in the US, I'll be there opening day (unless it's Christmas, then the day or two after...) ¡Caliente!

    That's awesome, but...

    I'm assuming this is a UK-only deal. Other than the site you mentioned, I haven't seen anything else about it anywhere (except a few UK DVD sites). I'd think the marketing push would have gotten to some mainstream outlets by now.

    That's too bad because I love it when they rerelease old movies in theaters--especially if it's something as nostalgic as the TMNT. Maybe someday...

    I hope this means worldwide. If not, hopefully they'll do something similar here. With figures and DVD's already in stores, it'd only make sense to introduce the turtles on the big screen to a new generation :)

    Besides, re-issues of old films always do well.

    Couldn't agree more. We really need to see this in theaters again. The sequals are debateable, but the original TMNT Movie was absolutely breathtaking. And even for a film done on a small budget (If I am not mistaken they made it a budget film so they could get the Jim Henson Creature shop to do it).

    Plus, the new cartoon is very similar to this movie, mainly the characters personalities, the Foot ninjas being humans instead of robots, and of course Casey Jones in every episode :crazy: ;). This film will be great to rerelease... I mean, a lot of the stuff out there otherwise is debateable...

    The third film, IMO, is the weakest. It is still alright, and loads better than most other sequels ou there, but is missing the "edge" that's so apparent in the first two.

    I think the second one was my favorite. I really liked that one. And Rocksteady and Bebop were so cute as babies! :p The first one was really good too, though. I don't remember much about the third, but Yoshi was a sweet kid.

    I think that after the first one, they weren't as interresting. I actually found TMNT 3 for one dollar at a video store... at least I got my buck's worth. Pretty pointless odd plot.

    Actually the second could have been way much better if it followed the comic book... in there, TCRI (the mutagen manufactureres) were actually alien Brains (which would soon inspire the character of Krang) trying to get home... of course if they did that, the budget would go through the roof!!!

    A Creature Shop Krang! Why not? :)

    BTW, Erin, not Rock and Bebop were turned into babies, but Tokka and Rahzar.

    Shouldn't www.ninjaturtles.com get an award for best official site ever? If you look at henson.com, wich I visit maybe once a year, ninjaturtles.com so totally rocks! Hey Tooth, what do you think of the new cartoon? I recently downloaded some eps.

    so what's the story with the TMNT movie? Is it being re-released? I can't find any information on it anywhere.

    I would be there in a heartbeat if I found it it was showing at one of my local theaters. That movie just rocked. I'm a little biased, because I grew up right in the middle of the initial TMNT craze, but I just watched the movie again last year, and I still thought it was really good.

    It easily has to be the best live-action "action figure" movie of all-time. You could argue that the movies were inspired by the comics, but let's be realistic -- the cartoons and the toys were what made this happen. It falls a lot closer to the likes of the He-Man and Power Ranger movies than it does the X-Men or Batman movies, and no other movie that falls into the first category was as good as this. The sequels also pale in comparison to the original.

    I disagree... the cartoon and comics made the movie popular, but the movie is mostly based off the comic (with a few exceptions)

    http://www.ninjaturtles.com/comics/mirage/volume01/10/10.htm read it, and you'll see what I mean.

    Besides, if it were based off the show, Krang would have been in it!

    Besides, who says this isn't as good as Spiderman (or better than the Hulk) it was pretty tight! And they didn't even need no stinking computers.

    Why is this in the Fantasy Worlds thread, shouldn't it be in general dissucion, cause it doesn't have anything to do with Henson.
