It’s been nearly a full year since Seth Rogen signed on to produce a new animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie for Nickelodeon. But now, the project finally has a release date. Variety is reporting that the turtles’ next theatrical adventure will premiere on August 11, 2023.
Rogen confirmed the news on his Twitter account. His post also includes a photo of what looks like a page from a young Leonardo’s notebook, complete with notes about mutations, references to other characters in the turtles’ orbit, and even a few doodles. Check it out for yourself below.

Previously, Rogen explained that the new movie would put special emphasis on the characters’ teenage personalities. The reboot will mark the first Ninja Turtles film to hit the big screen since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows premiered in 2016. The movie will also utilize CG animation similar to 2007’s TMNT.
Rogen is producing the reboot through his Point Grey Pictures banner with his frequent collaborator Evan Goldberg and president James Weaver. Brendan O’Brien, who worked with Rogen on Neighbors and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, is writing the script. The movie will be directed by Jeff Rowe, who recently made a splash as the director of Netflix’s The Mitchells vs. the Machines.
