A new slate of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies headed to Paramount+ was announced by ViacomCBS.
As officially informed, on Feb. 15, the new series of animated flicks were reported during ViacomCBS’ investor day and will each give attention to the most notable villains in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. The movies are planned to premiere on Paramount+ sometime in 2023 and detailed information about the plot has not yet been revealed.
Furthermore, it was reported that in 2023 three new spinoff movies of Spongebob Squarepants, and both a live-action and Dora the Explorer animated series by CG, will premiere on Paramount+.
Brian Robbins, chief content officer, Movies and Kids & Family for Paramount Plus said: “As we’ve known with Nickelodeon’s long-standing success, the kids and family audience is incredibly loyal, and we see that on Paramount Plus as well, with kids and family ranking as one of the strongest genres on the service in terms of both engagement and subscriber acquisition,”
“So as they stay for our shows and look for even more of them, we’re doubling down on giving them what they want by expanding the universes of the characters they love the best.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle animated movie series of Paramount+ will be shown on the streaming forum approximately at the same time with a CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, which is scheduled to be released in theaters Aug. 11, 2023. The Mitchells vs. The Machines’ director Jeff Rowe co-directs this currently unnamed film, with a screenplay written by Brendan O’Brien. Rogen and Goldberg will produce with James Weaver and Josh Fagen who are partners of Point Grey Pictures, along with Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon EVP of Animation Production and Development Ramsey Naito.
Tanya Giles, chief programming officer for ViacomCBS Streaming, claimed: “Our Kids and Family content is not only bringing young audiences to Paramount+ but it’s also a key component in retaining our existing subscriber base and expanding their viewership habits,” She added: “Paramount Plus is a service for the whole household and we’re now seeing nearly half of our subscribers engaging with kids and family content on the service, a double-digit gain over last year.”
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise which was created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in the mid-1980s focuses on four humanlike turtles — Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael — who were taught in the martial arts by a rat known as their master and adoptive father named Splinter.
Paramount+’s TMNT animated movies, which will focus on villains, will be released on the streaming platform in 2023.
