The last 24 hours for have been a crazy whirlwind for TMNT fans. With the announcement that Michael Bay is going to reboot the TMNT franchise and make them aliens has set the Internet on fire. Bay has already responded with the flowing statement via Nickelodeon:
"Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script," Bay wrote. "Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of 'Ninja Turtles' to help expand and give a more complex back story. Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world."
Apparently Bay believes that nothing is sacred and also responded with:
"Kids are going to believe one day [that] these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie," Bay said last week. "These turtles are from an alien race, and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely loveable."
What we have to ask is, has Bay ever picked up at TMNT comic? Watch the cartoon? The films might have their faults, but the TMNT’s already have a rich full universe to begin with. So Maniacs, are you ready to “chill” and wait for the release of TANT?
